Career Fair

Stay tuned for more information on the 2018 Career Fair later this year!

The AHA will hold its fifth annual Career Fair in 2018. The Career Fair introduces job candidates and students to advisers from various career paths. Advisers will provide informational interviews and guidance in the transition from history studies to a career. Last year, advisers came from business, academic administration, universities, independent schools, community colleges, historical societies, government, and publishing. Perspectives featured a report from the 2016 fair.

Talk to a Career Fair adviser to learn:

  • What careers are available to historians?
  • What additional training might be needed?
  • How do you find a job?
  • Which skills of historians are in demand?
  • How can history departments support broad career paths? 

All annual meeting attendees are welcome! E-mail Emily Swafford, AHA manager of academic affairs, with any questions.
