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.

A note from Jessica Best, creator of a sci-fi podcast: “I have a paid opportunity for your students, if they are interested in sci-fi and script-writing.

The pay would be $60 per (roughly 40-minute) episode. Writers of color, transgender writers, nonbinary writers, and/or queer writers are especially encouraged to apply. The deadline is October 15th.
