The MLA Career Fair can help you learn about a wide range of career options and connect you with mission-driven organizations looking for employees with your special skills. 

Created specifically for those with graduate training in languages, literature, and the humanities, the MLA Career Fair is brought to you by the Modern Language Association.


Do you have advanced training in writing, languages, teaching, or research? Are you curious about jobs outside of academia? Attend the MLA Career Fair to find out more about organizations eager to hire humanities professionals for a variety of positions.

Organized by the MLA as part of the MLA Annual Convention, the MLA Career Fair offers job seekers with advanced training in the humanities a chance to connect with recruiters from mission-driven organizations and companies. Recruiters will be looking for professionals who are able to

• write and communicate effectively
• work well independently
• learn quickly and meet deadlines

• train and supervise others
• communicate well across cultures (often multilingually)

If you are looking for a new job, planning to change careers, 
or just want to educate yourself about career alternatives, this is a must-attend event.
