I just got this in my e-mail and thought I'd pass it along for those who are interested.

Dear Job Seeker,

Maximize your job search by attending an American Physical Society Job Fair this March and April. Recruiters from Industry, Academia and government will be collecting resumes and conducting face-to-face interviews. Whether you're looking for a job now or just looking for a networking tool, an APS Job Fair can be a critical tool for your job search success.

2005 APS March Meeting Job Fair
Monday, March 21-23
Los Angeles Convention Center
Los Angeles, CA

Meet with employers from all areas of Condensed Matter, Engineering, Materials Science, High Polymer, Chemical, Biophysics, Fluid Dynamics, Laser Science, Computational, Atomic, Molecular and Optical, Semiconductor and more.
Register today at

2005 APS April Meeting Job Fair
Sunday, April 17-18
Marriott Waterside Hotel
Tampa, Florida

Meet with employers from all areas of Nuclear, Particles and Fields, Astrophysics, Chemical, Beams, Plasma and Computational Physics.

Register today at

Past employers include such companies as Northrop Grumman, Raytheon Polar Services, Los Alamos National Lab, Brookhaven National Lab, and Lawrence Livermore National Lab.

If you can not attend, you can still register as a non-attendee so that your resume can be included in the Resume Book which gets distributed to all participating employers.

Take note that this "job fair" goes on at EVERY APS March and April Meetings, not just this year. I would also strongly suggest that you attend the meetings in person and not just submit your resume. Most who are looking to hire would prefer that you are there in person so that they can interview you there, and that you are also giving an oral presentation at one of the sessions so that they can evaluate your ability to communicate your work. This automatically means that (i) you have to be an APS member (or affiliate member) (ii) that you are registered to attend that meeting.

... but then again, if you are already an APS member, you would have received the e-mail distribution in the first place.

Job fairs such as this often occur at most large physics conferences. So that's one more incentive to try to attend some of those.

Just want to add that it's not too late to do either (even for the March Meeting).

For students, the APS membership fee is $27 and the registration fee is $80. While the early registration deadline has passed, I think late registration involves only another $10 or so (for student members), and this can be done even at location.
