Access to Talent Program at IROS2017


This year, after a successful previous ICRA round, the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society organizes an Access to Talent Program in conjunction with IEEE/RJS IROS2017. The IROS exhibition is targeted at the robotics industry, providing an excellent opportunity for employers to showcase their company and to conduct on site interviews with prospective employees.

The Access to Talent Program is a joint initiative of the Industrial Activities Board and the Electronic Products and Services Board of the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society. It includes two activities:


(1) For Those Seeking Employment Opportunities

Conference attendees (primarily students) interested in robotics-related employment opportunities can upload their contact information, interests and resume to a database that will be made available to the recruiting companies. Interested companies will then have the opportunity to conduct on-site interviews.

(2) Recruiting Companies

Companies interested in recruiting at IROS will have access to the following resources:

  • A searchable resume database of conference attendees interested in robotics related employment
  • Some space for conducting on-site interviews
  • Poster space (limited per company) during the exhibition to advertise the company and its available positions.



Fees for companies:
