Jobs at Art Museums (JAM) is an all-day museum-career awareness event at the Art Institute of Chicago. Area students and emerging job seekers, as well as college and university faculty, are invited to visit the museum and experience student-led gallery presentations, a panel conversation with Art Institute staff, and intimate breakout sessions with museum professionals representing a variety of departments and fields. Breakout sessions are followed by a reception where students can learn about upcoming internship and career opportunities and socialize with peers, faculty, museum staff, and intern alumni.
