The IS Department hosts its Internship & Career Fair annually in the Spring quarter. During the Fair, we welcome representatives from dozens of internship and fieldwork sites to meet with students, share what they do, and recruit for job and internship openings for the summer and upcoming academic year.

The Internship & Career Fair is structured a bit like a speed-dating event: Site representatives are set up at assigned tables in classroom spaces throughout the GSE&IS Building, with plenty of room for informational materials, business cards, and handouts. Student attendees receive a list of participating sites at check-in, and circulate throughout the Fair to meet site representatives for mini-interviews, share copies of their résumés, and explore the possibilities!

The 2018 Internship & Career Fair will be held from 12:00 – 3:00 PM on Friday, April 6 and Friday, April 20. If your organization is already an approved MLIS Internship Program site, you can sign up for a spot on one of these dates using this form. You’ll need to provide contact info and a short description of the available internship project(s) at your site.

Can’t make either of those dates in person? You can use the same form to submit information about openings you have available, and/or send a one-page summary of your site and internship opening(s) to is-internship@gseis.ucla.edu. We’ll circulate your information to students at the Fair so prospective applicants can follow up with you directly.
