Friday, April 12 & Friday, April 19
Rooms 111, 121, and the IS Lab
A networking event on two consecutive Friday afternoons, during which first- and second-year MLIS students meet with representatives from potential internship sites. This long-standing tradition, hosted by the IS Department, is a great way to network with leaders in your field and plan the course of your career path.
***Plan to attend both networking sessions; only half of the internship sites can be accommodated at each session.***
Internships offer the opportunity to gain valuable, marketable skills. Start planning for Summer 2019 and/or Academic Year 2019-2020 and take advantage of the department’s long-standing relationships with IS internship sites and alumni.
All graduate students of the IS Department are strongly encouraged to attend. GSE&IS Faculty and Staff are encouraged to come network with LIS professionals and students. Anyone interested in LIS internship opportunities may also feel free to attend.
Attendee registration is encouraged, though not required. The more we know about those planning to attend, the better we are able to serve participants. Closer to the event, we will announce a complete list of participating sites and the days they are attending. We also have a method for those who cannot attend in person to participate. Finally, related preparatory workshops will be held leading up to the event, open to all.
