- As you submit your open position, you will be asked to indicate dates and times you are available to meet with prospective candidates during the ET4Online Symposium (April 9-11, 2013- Planet Hollywood Las Vegas). Meeting rooms will be made available during the conference for your confidential interviews.

- Prepare your Curriculum Vitae and bring sufficient copies to provide to employers with whom you would like to speak.
DURING THE CONFERENCE:
- Plan to attend the conference and be available at the times you scheduled to meet with candidates.
- Check-in at the Career Forum Desk to obtain your interview schedule/locations/dates/times.
- After checking in at the conference registration desk, visit the Career Forum Desk to schedule interviews with employers who have posted positions of interest. Attend the scheduled interview; bring your Curriculum Vitae with you to present at the interview.
