Learn about Careers in the Museum Field
Jobs at Art Museums (JAM) is a career awareness event at the Art Institute of Chicago. This year the event has been reimagined as a series of 12 presentations on Zoom over the course of winter and spring. Each talk will focus on a different theme, from Art & Science, to Community Programs, to “Handle with Care” (staff who actually touch objects), and more.
College and university students are invited to conversations with museum professionals representing a variety of departments and fields. Learn about upcoming internship and career opportunities and virtually socialize with peers and museum staff.
