2018 MLA Convention Highlight: Possible Futures Career Fair

At the 2018 MLA Annual Convention, the MLA will hold its first career fair. The Possible Futures Career Fair brings together MLA job seekers with mission-driven organizations who seek experts in education, communication, and languages. Whether you are a graduate student, a recent PhD, or a faculty member or administrator seeking the next stage in your own career, the career fair can help.

The career fair will be held on Friday, 5 January from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the MLA Career Center, located in the New York Hilton, Americas II, third floor access.

Participating Organizations

Representatives from a variety of organizations will be on hand at the fair to speak to job seekers about career possibilities. Please note that some organizations will have open positions; others are offering informational interviews aimed at helping  attendees prepare for jobs outside of the academy. We invite you to visit their Web sites to learn about the range of opportunities available for people with advanced humanities training!
