Opportunities from Drexel and ALA

Friday, March 4: One-hour open online chat with ALCTS New Members Interest Group (ANMIG) at 11 a.m. Eastern. 

Are you a graduate student or recent graduate student looking for your first full time job as a cataloger? Or maybe you are a more experienced librarian that who has recently been laid off or are looking for new opportunities? Maybe you have found a satisfying cataloging related position and would like to share your experience with those who are looking for work? If so then, you should be interested in the ALCTS New Members Interest Group's March chat. Topics include where to look for cataloging jobs, desirable qualities and qualifications for cataloging applicants, ways to build cataloging skills during a job search, access to professional materials and keeping up to date with the profession, managing your online presence, and traditional job search topics such as resume building, cover letters, interviewing etc.

ANMIG team members Sarah Smith and Erica Findley will host the chat. If you can't make the chat, the transcript will be made available in ALA Connect.

The chat is open to all ALA members of all types and non-ALA members.

To join the chat please visit our ALA Connect page and look for the embedded Meebo room. Get more information here:
