The First Ever SACNAS CareerCon

SACNAS CareerCon is a new immersive, cohort-based career event that will engage high-caliber STEM career seekers in a transformative, experiential-learning environment. This once-in-a-lifetime event provides students, job seekers, and professionals with innovative tools for bringing your whole self to STEM, recognizing strengths, and combining practical professional skills and highly tailored career matching centered in a culture of inclusion and intersectionality. No longer will we leave our brilliant STEM scholars who are the least resourced, and least connected to wander down a hallway hoping that good luck and the right question to the right person will properly determine their future. We are going to be the “anti career fair” and create completely curated and intelligent matches in an environment of shared learning that will forever change our scholar’s careers and transform the face of STEM!


This event will be the culmination of all that makes SACNAS the best STEM talent matching organization in the country, with resources for scientists to take their networking and personal development to the next level.


To partner with SACNAS at CareerCon, become an Elite or SACNAS365 partner today!
