"The Postdoc Conference is a tremendous resource for postdocs considering how to move from the postdoc world to a career, especially in gaining the perspective of hiring organizations."

-- Jonathan Lefman, hired by US Army Corps of Engineers at 2010 Postdoc Conference


"The Postdoc Conference allows scientists to discover new opportunities and offers a venue for employers to meet highly talented people. I first attended the event as a postdoc and found my current job, not even knowing ones like it existed. It is a great opportunity for networking and to learn from people that have been in your shoes searching for a satisfying career path. I highly recommend the conference and career fair for job seekers, employers and PhDs interested in learning about a wide variety of career paths."

-- Ziggy Majumdar, Ph.D., Booz Allen Hamilton



"The opportunity to meet and interact with the candidates who attended the career fair was an invaluable resource in our hiring process. Schafer Corporation strives to hire and retain individuals that exhibit the ability to effectively apply their education and experience to a broad range of areas. We were very impressed with the candidates that we met and will return to another Career Fair in the future."

-- Michele Robinson, Schafer Corporation, Technology Management Division



"Discovery Logic has been coming to the Postdoc Conference now for three years, staffing a recruiting table and participating in seminars. We have found the quality of applicants to be high. We have hired three postdocs we first met at the conference and they have made substantial contributions to our analytics business."

-- Laurel L. Haak, Discovery Logic, A Thomson Reuters Company
