CLICK U PROGRAM:  Expand Your Career Potential: Increase Your Expertise, Compensation and Career Satisfaction (Part 1)


Deborah Hunt, principal, Information Edge
David Grossman, history room and reference librarian, Mill Valley Public Library (Calif.)

These are tough times, but librarians, archivists and other information professionals possess many marketable skills that may be easily adapted to access, organize and unlock the value within the paper or digital knowledge information assets for their organization or their clients.

This workshop offers practical advice to help information professionals assess and expand their existing skill sets and develop new areas of expertise to broaden their career potential, maximize their earnings in their current position or gain that competitive edge for landing their next job.

This is Part 1 of this two part series: Broadening Your Existing Skill Set

(Note:  The series continues on January 19th with Part 2: Leaping Off the Edge: Success Stories You Can Replicate. Please register separately for both sessions.)

In this first session, we will identify and discuss those skill sets that are in the greatest demand in the library/information world. The presenters will also examine alternative jobs and potential career paths for librarians and information professionals contemplating a career change or transitioning into a non-traditional role. Workshop attendees will develop their own customized action plan to identify, augment and acquire those new skills that will provide the ticket to expanded career growth, increased compensation and greater career satisfaction.

The DC/SLA chapter is hosting a gathering at Dow Jones DC office to watch this webinar as a group. Any SLA member is invited to attend at no charge; the cost for non-members is $10.00.
