The Fall Languages and Careers Fair will take place next Thursday, October 26th,  from 4-6 PM in the Center for Career Development — 100 Bay State Road, 6th floor.  This event offers students an opportunity to ask questions about spring ’18 courses and to learn more about BU campus partners including Study Abroad, the Office of Scholarships and Fellowships, and the Center for Career Development.  In addition, students can network with recent BU alums who are using their language skills on the job and meet representatives from two graduate programs: Middlebury Institute of International Studies and Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.   Representatives from numerous companies and organizations who are interested in hiring students with language skills will also attend, including Amazon, Boston Housing Authority, Collette Travel, FBI, Management Sciences for Health, and National Security Agency.  Students from all classes are welcome as the recruiters may have some summer internship opportunities as well as full-time positions available.
