Spring Career Fair

The 2017 Library and Information Science Career and Networking Fair will bring together employers who are seeking interns, employees, and networking opportunities with students, these employers are from the Greater Boston area, New England, and beyond. We expect employers from a range of fields including public, school, and academic libraries, government agencies, corporate libraries, museums and archives, information and knowledge management firms, digital publishers and information services, and more.

Co-hosted by SLIS and the Simmons Career Education Center (CEC), the fair is a terrific opportunity for recruiters to promote their organizations and meet highly qualified candidates seeking full-time, part-time, and internship employment as well as networking opportunities.

Please note that the LIS Career and Networking Fair is intended for current students, recent graduates, and alumni of the Simmons LIS program only. It is a separate industry-specific event distinct from the annual Simmons College Spring Career & Internship Fair. All Simmons undergraduate and graduate students are welcome to attend.
