Click U: Expand Your Career Potential: Part 2

Program Date:  Thursday January 19, 2012

Description: 

Presenters:

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 2 of this two part series: Leaping Off the Edge: Success Stories You Can Replicate.

In this follow-up session, we will explore a variety of settings outside the library realm where information professionals are working and thriving. The presenters will draw upon their own experiences and present case studies of former librarians who have made the leap into an alternative career. The presenters will identify the many “personas” used by the most successful librarians/information professionals in our profession. Workshop attendees will develop their talking points, “elevator speech” and other communication skills that will help them get to “yes” and consistently prove their value to their organization.

HOSTING THIS SESSION:  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.
