LLOPS is hosting a table at the iSchool Career Fair on Tuesday, January 31, 2017 from 12:30-4:30PM.  This event is a great opportunity for companies and organizations to discuss career opportunities, job openings, internships and fieldwork with outstanding students in the information field who are potential interns and part- or full-time employees in your organization. The fair is open to iSchool students and others across campus who are seeking jobs and internships in the information science field. Last year the fair saw over 700 students in attendance.  This is an ideal venue for employers interested in hiring for a wide range of information technology, information science, and library science roles.

 

If you are interested in attending to search for a candidate for your organization or to promote iSchool student awareness of LLOPS and the law librarianship profession, please contact LLOPS iSchool Liaison, Grace Feldman
