Spotlight on: Professional Development Workshops

Today, I would like to take a closer look at two workshop offerings that will give you tools and tips for your career and professional development.

First, the ArLiSNAP Career Development Workshop will offer a multi-part experience aimed at providing students and newer professionals with resources needed for breaking into the art librarianship field. These will include (1) a session on crafting a vision statement that also connects to career mapping exercises (very appropriate for visual arts librarians!), (2) an open forum with seasoned professionals from a variety of types of institutions and with experience as hiring managers, and (3) a resume review session with one’s peers and with the workshop panelists. This is a FREE workshop, so don’t wait to register!

Your second professional development workshop opportunity is offered in the form of ARLIS/NA’s Yearlong Mentoring Program. The conference workshop is just one facet of the Mentoring Subcommittee’s sponsored year-long program. The conference workshop will pair mentors and mentees interested in leadership roles. This will be ideal for those newer professionals looking for long-term support from someone outside one’s current work or educational environment. And for those with more professional leadership experience, don’t hesitate to sign up as a mentor. The conference workshop and the year-long Mentoring Program are also FREE! Take a closer look and sign up for these right away!

There are only 18 more days to register at the Early Bird Registration rate, so register today!
