School of Information Sciences


The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Information Sciences invites you to sponsor iFest 2015: Technology. Entrepreneurship. Creativity. (February 2-7, 2015). This weeklong series of events showcases the accomplishments of our students and serves as an excellent opportunity for employers to meet and network with students interested in information careers and internships.

We will again host our two signature employer-oriented events designed to help our students learn about your organization and build successful and challenging careers.

Information Executive Roundtable
Wednesday, February 4, 2015 | 12:00 – 2:00PM

Information executives meet over lunch with a select group of top-performing students to discuss employment opportunities, strategies for career preparation, practical work experience, and the ‘soft’ skills necessary for success as a leader in the information field. This event is an excellent opportunity for employers and students to network in an informal, small-group setting. In 2014, 30 students were selected to participate in this event.

iSchool Career & Internship Expo
Thursday, February 5, 2015 | 4:00 – 7:00PM

The iSchool Career & Internship Expo is open to employers in technical and non- technical industries. This event will be exclusively reserved for iSchool undergraduate and graduate students, majoring in Information Sciences, Library & Information Sciences, and Telecommunications & Networking.  In 2014, 160 students participated.
