What must I do to participate in one or both job fairs?
  • If you want to join IHLS HR Director Jill Trevino at our booth, then you don’t have to register. However, we do ask that you email her at to let her know you will be at the IHLS booth.
  • If you would like your own booth at these events, then call or email your registration information to the appropriate event contact. See the job fair fliers (linked above) for the separate registration forms and contact information for each individual event. Also, email so we know that you are attending. Jill would love to say, “Hi” to you while she’s there!


What if I cannot attend in person?

No problem! IHLS can still help. Ensure that your job is posted on the IHLS job board, and we will hand out literature to all job fair attendees about all the library jobs posted on our IHLS job board.
