There will be a Career Center set up in the exhibit area, where students and early career professionals can meet each other and the ASLO Board members in a fun, relaxed setting. This center will host the Career Bulletin Board, where prospective employers are invited to post job announcements and students and early career professionals are invited to post a one-page CV. Students should also stop by for information and to learn more about the Career Development Workshops and student social events. The Career Center will also feature a raffle – items and raffle boxes will be displayed all week and the drawing will be held on Thursday evening.
Roommates Wanted is a free on-line service to ASLO students and early career members who are seeking roommates during meetings. To participate, visit http://www.aslo.org/meetings/roommates.html. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of this service since hotel costs in San Juan are expensive.
