The following opportunities are offered by IPAC, the International Personnel Assessment Counsel.

Student Poster Session. This interactive poster session provides students a forum for sharing their research and refining their presentation skills in a conference setting. Students will receive valuable feedback, brainstorm ideas for future research, and identify resources from a diverse group of HR, assessment, and I/O pro­fessionals.

James C. Johnson Student Paper Competition. The annual James C. Johnson Student Paper Competition recognizes the contributions of students in the field of personnel assessment. Papers must be theses, dissertations, or other student papers that describe original research conducted by the author while a student. The award winner will present the winning paper at IPAC’s Conference in Birmingham, AL, July 2017. The winner will receive coverage of conference related travel expenses, free conference registration, one-year membership in IPAC, and recognition in the widely read IPAC newsletter. In addition, the University Department where the student’s research was completed will receive a plaque commemorating the student’s IPAC award achievement.
