Careers Across MIT – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to register?

We encourage you to sign up for the event on our EventBrite page. This will allow us to send you event reminders and additional information.

How can I prepare for this event?

This is an informal, drop-in style event. However, if you are considering your own career development, we do encourage you to:

I’m not looking for a new job right now. Should I still attend this event?

Absolutely! Even if you’re not looking for a new job, Careers Across MIT is a great opportunity to learn about how you can develop your career at MIT. It’s also an excellent networking opportunity for staff. You’ll get to meet representatives from MIT career development programs and services, and talk to MIT employees who have built their careers at the Institute.

Can I use this event to search for a job?

Of course! Many of the areas represented have open positions, and many others hire frequently, even if they don’t have open positions at this time. This event is your chance to network with hiring managers and HR professionals from many different areas across MIT.

How will I know which tables have open positions?

If you are looking for a job, we recommend starting your visit at the Job Search Services table. This table will have lists of open positions at the Institute, organized by functional area (e.g., financial, event planning, HR, etc.). We will also identify the tables that have open positions. This will help you determine the tables most beneficial for you to visit.

Should I bring my resume?

You are welcome to bring your resume to share with table hosts. However, you should remember that if you are interested in a particular job, you must apply online to be considered.

Can my department participate?
