Were you trained in history and use that training in your job? Do you work in business, education, nonprofits, government, archives, libraries, publishing, or another area? If you’ll be in Washington, DC, on the afternoon of January 4, please come to the Marriott Wardman Park and share your experiences with students and job candidates who are attending the AHA annual meeting.

We’re looking for people willing to volunteer anytime between 1–5 p.m. on January 4. You can find a sign-up form on the AHA website at https://www.historians.org/annual/jobs. Mentors will be stationed at tables where students and job candidates can browse. Feel free to bring literature about your field or employer, but there won’t be room for extensive displays. Help expand the horizons for history majors, and let them know about all the myriad options for them to use their skills and knowledge!

Questions? Send us an e-mail or call 202.544.2422, ext. 122.
