long time no post…hey guys.so, i just noticed that there are dates at ratheonʹs rayjobs sites for career fairs…and i got an email message from their website too (with a completely different date.) so, which fair should i go toʔ does it matterʔ anyone else planning on goingʔbingJune 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9112
bing -go to the one in denver on april 7th. thatʹll be the one where all the hiring managers will be at. the point of going is to make contact with the hiring managers. at all the other ones, itʹs just an hr person…. with a corporation this big, itʹs best just to go straight to the source. so, the one in denver is the best, as you can make contacts in the particular departments youʹre considering.good luckJune 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9113
do you know where i could find more info on the april 7 job fairʔ iʹm hoping to run down there from seattle to bolster my chances, and i donʹt want to be flying entirely blind. thanks a lot for any help.June 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9114
hi zondra –can you post the link to the job fair infoʔ i havenʹt been able to find any references to it on the rpsc or usap web pages.hey bing –good to see youʹre still around. good luck.hola gahopeful –sometimes they offer job fairs in cities other than denver (seattle has been one in the past). these are not as good as the “real” one in denver, but if you have a hard time breaking free for a few days it may be an alternative — this is why iʹm interested in finding the links to the job fair date(s): there may be other locations.getting a ga job is tough, as youʹll have a lot of competition. this is not to be discouraging: go for itǃ but be persistent. unless you know already know somebody in the program it will take effort to get noticed. perhaps there are other, less competitive positions that youʹd be qualified forʔ what do you know how to doʔ what do you enjoyʔ we may be able to make some suggestions for additional positions to apply for. fyi.glennJune 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9115
okay…i hunted a bit and found the job fair page…there are a couple of other ones listed besides the main one in denver, more may be posted in the future. i too am surprised that the denver job fair is only on friday and not 2 days… http://www.rayjobs.com/index.cfmʔnavid=27good luck <ǃ-- s:wink: --><ǃ-- s:wink: -->June 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9116
bill,your web link shows the job fair that took place last september. i realize raytheon has problems understanding that penguins and polar bears are not at the same place but i hope they have more current information on the job fair.been thereJune 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9117
hmmm – i just clicked on the link from bill, and all the information seems to be current…June 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9118
ga hopefulthe best advice is to go to the job fair. be as blind as you be going into it. have your ducks in a row coming out. as with all job fairs, this is a chance for you to impress, but you are in the pool with hundreds if not thousands of people. at denver, you will more than likely be talking to the dept heads that actually do the hiring. make contact and if you do nothing else get their email address and phone number, and most importantly get permission to keep in touch. then do it. donʹt be a pest, but make sure that if there is an opening then they already know that there is someone ready to go and that person is you. mike in mcmurdoJune 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9119
the denver job fair is actually in centennial. that could be a source of the error.June 14, 2009 at 6:58 am #9120
