Joint PSI & Park Innovaare Career Fair

For the first time, PSI and Park Innovaare are organizing a joint career fair on March 8th, 2024, at Park Innovaare in Villigen. We are aiming for a small and familiar event with a maximum of 10 companies. Do you want to be part of it?

The career fair provides an ideal platform to foster exchange between companies and young talents. As company, you are given the opportunity to meet highly qualified and motivated early career researchers, and can interact with potential candidates for expert and leader positions. At the same time, early career researchers get insights in different companies and their work culture, increase their network, and move their career forward. 

Are you curious about working outside of academia and want to explore options for your next career step? Do you already have concrete plans to move to industry after your contract at PSI ended? Then come to our career fair! Interact and network with company representatives at their booths, listen to one (or all) presentation(s) to get inspired, or receive personlized feedback on your CV.
