Events & Meetings: 4 Ways to Rock the ACOG Career Fair

It’s that time of year again—time for the ACOG Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting! If you’re looking for a new position, make sure to attend the 3rd Annual ACOG Career Fair during the meeting, from 8 am to 10 am on Tuesday, May 9, in Ballroom 6B of the San Diego Convention Center.

The ACOG Career Fair is a high-energy event where you’ll connect with employers who want to hire ob-gyns like you. This is your chance to mingle with the top recruiters and hiring managers in your field, including representatives from:

  • Mayo Clinic
  • Gundersen Health System
  • Rush University Medical Center
  • Community Health System
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • And more.

Here are four ways to make a great impression at the ACOG Career Fair:

1. Do your homework. Research the companies that will be at the event. Time is limited, so make a list of the top three or four organizations you’d like to learn more about and prepare questions to ask.

2. Bring your CV. Tailor your CV to make it stand out to employers and print several copies on high-quality paper to bring with you. Even better, sign up for a professional review of your CV at the Career Connection Live booth before the event!

3. Dress the part. True, this isn’t a formal job interview, but you’ll still be making a first impression on potential employers. We recommend wearing business casual attire.

4. Follow up. Gather contact information from everyone you talk with, and attempt to map out next steps while you’re there. Then, follow up! Send a personal thank you note or email. If an employer asked you to apply for a position directly online, do that first and mention it in your note.

RSVP for the ACOG Career Fair to continue to receive tips and reminders as the event grows closer. This lets employers know you are attending, too.

If you’re an employer who wants to get in on the action, there’s still time to snag a table at the ACOG Career Fair! Meet professionals in a casual setting and walk away with a hot list of candidates you’ll be excited to follow up with.
