The ASHEcon Job Market is designed to bring job seekers together to meet with representatives from companies and academia in an informal “meet-and-greet” atmosphere. With over 300 students and early career professionals, you are sure to find a perfect fit for your team. Employers will be prepared to discuss opportunities for internships/fellowships, postdoctoral appointments and part-time/full-time jobs at their organizations. All institutions with an interest in hiring are welcome to participate in the 2020 ASHEcon Job Market. A current open position is not required to participate. The informal environment of the Job Market is designed to be flexible to fit the meeting schedule of attendees and offers the opportunity to meet with employers to learn more about their institutions, as well as currently open or future positions.
