I’m giving a webinar for ACRL: “Making Yourself Marketable for Academic Library Positions”

Hi, librarian & MLS student friends–

On November 12th, I’ll be giving a (free!) webinar for ACRL, titled “Making Yourself Marketable for Academic Library Positions.” It’s based on the chapter of the same title, which I wrote for Megan Hodge’s The Future Academic Librarian’s Toolkit.

MLS students are the target audience. And I’d love to have any interested academic librarians there as well. Here’s more information from ACRL:

Meeting Title: ACRL Membership Committee: Making Yourself Marketable for Academic Library Positions
Date: November 12, 2019
Time: 1:00-2:00PM PM Central Time
Register in advance for this meeting: https://ala-events.zoom.us/…/regi…/WN_duXkaOUMR_68S43CXWpVgQ

“When you’re working on your MLS degree, you have countless opportunities for courses and internships. Which ones increase your future marketability the most? How can you communicate the experience that you’ve gained through courses and work in order to give yourself the most options possible? Topics covered in this session include selecting educational and work opportunities, building professional relationships, communicating your experience and strengths, and beginning to build a scholarly record. The session emphasizes practical steps that you can take throughout your career as an MLS candidate. It also offers honest commentary on what to do if the job search isn’t going as planned, as well as advice on making the most of your first few months of employment once you do become an academic librarian. This presentation is adapted from the author’s chapter of the same title in The Future Academic Librarian’s Toolkit, edited by Megan Hodge.”

Thanks for considering! – Karen
