Registration for the Conference Career Center can be added anytime during the open period for the conference registration. The Conference Career Center online job portal is expected to open to post jobs, resumés, and conduct searches by March 1.
Employers can post their open positions, and job seekers can apply online. Job openings posted on the online job portal should include contact information for the person in charge of hiring, as job seekers are encouraged to reach out directly to employers. Employers should set up a time for an interview with candidates they are interested in and those interviews should take place through a channel agreed upon by both parties (e.g. Zoom, phone, in-person at the conference). There will be designated space at the convention center where interviews can be conducted in-person or virtually. This designated area is reserved solely for interviews set up ahead of time and does not serve as an open job fair setting. The CCC will also include other offerings (outlined at the top of this page).
Job seekers can upload PDF documents, such as resumés, into the Conference Career Center portal. After uploading your resumé, there will be a few additional questions that will enable others to search for specific criteria. You should fill this out as well, even if it is somewhat redundant with what is contained in your resumé.
*Please note: Job seekers can remain anonymous on the Job Seeker portal by NOT selecting “My Resumé Listing.” Leave that box blank. More details below.
No, job seekers may sign up when the annual conference has already started. However, the odds of having a favorable Conference Career Center experience are increased if you are more proactive. A SIOP survey showed that 40% of organizations had already begun conducting interviews prior to the conference. In addition, space in the Mock Interview program is limited, so not all job seekers may have access to that beneficial service if they delay in signing up. Provided you do sign up early, we recommend that job seekers do the following:
Let the employer know that you are interested in the position/their organization. You might consider proving information regarding: (1) why you are interested in the position, and (2) the specific skills/experiences that you would bring to the position. Indicate that you are interested in setting up an interview with them. Of course, be sure to let them know your email and phone number so that they can easily contact you. Shakespeare once wrote “brevity is the soul of wit.” Provide enough information to portray yourself favorably, but save your big “sales pitch” for the interview.
You could, but that approach is not recommended. Instead, stick to the jobs you are genuinely interested in, and where you have relevant skills for the job. Remember that all employers have access to your resumé online.
Respond with times that you are available and clarify the channel through which the interview will be conducted (e.g., Zoom, phone, in-person).
Congratulations on your success! Please contact the SIOP Administrative Office (email@example.com) immediately, let them know of your success and we will remove your entry from the website.
The Conference Career Center stays open until June 30. There is value in continuing the job search following the conference as a lot of searches are still ongoing for both job seekers and employers.
You will not want to upload a resumé. You will have to be more proactive in your search by contacting employers directly. Using this methodology is the approach most likely to hide the fact that you are registered. Your anonymity may also be compromised if you attend the in-person Open House event. However, the space designated for in-person interviews at the conference is purposefully in a more discrete location in the convention center for this reason.
The Mock Interview Program is another service offering from SIOP’s Career Services Committee. Interested job seekers must sign up for the program separately from the CCC when registering for the conference. The purpose of the Mock Interview Program is to allow job seekers the opportunity to gain experience interviewing and receiving feedback. Participants will have the option to choose either a practitioner-track or an academia-track. Experienced SIOP members volunteer to conduct a mock interview with job seekers prior to or during the conference and provide constructive feedback on their interview performance to help them improve their interviewing skills. In addition,there is an option for the mock interviewer to conduct resumé/CV reviews and provide feedback to help the job seeker strengthen their resumé/CV. Space is determined on a first come, first serve basis, so be sure to sign up early! The sign up will close prior to conference registration closing.
An employer can post up to four jobs.
No, you do not need to sign up in advance. Registration will remain open through June 30th. However, signing up early allows you to take advantage of the early registration rate and start the resume review and interview process earlier. A SIOP survey found that 40% of the organizations participating in Conference Career Center had already conducted at least one interview prior to the conference. To compete for the best talent, acting sooner is always better.
Interviews can be conducted virtually, over the phone, or in-person at the conference. The CCC will have designated space for in-person and virtual interviews. If both the employer and job seeker will be at the conference in person, you may choose to conduct the interview in-person. If the interview is conducted virtually, the employer will choose the specific service platform.
Congratulations on your success! Please contact SIOP staff (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately, let them know of your success, and we will remove your entry from the CCC job portal.
