Oak Ridge, Tenn. — Undergraduates, graduate students and recent college graduates may find the research opportunity that meets their career goals during the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Science Education and Workforce Development Virtual Career Fair, being held from noon to 3 p.m. EST Thursday, February 22, 2018. The virtual career fair will be hosted by the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education and Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

“The virtual career fair is a great opportunity for students to investigate research opportunities available at ORNL,” said Dr. Bill Cox, ORISE group manager. “Participants will have the same ability to ask questions as if they were at a career fair in person.”

Students and recent graduates seeking research opportunities can interact with ORNL scientists, chat with recruiters, explore program booths and learn about the ORNL experience. To participate in the virtual career fair, students are invited to visit https://orau.6connex.com/event/LIVE/ORNL/login to register for the event.

Thirteen research participation programs at ORNL will be represented at the career fair. For a complete list of programs, visit https://orau.6connex.com/event/LIVE/ORNL/login.
