This semester SIRLS, LSO, SLA, and Friends of SIRLS in Phoenix are sponsoring a Job and Career Series. Our goal is to provide SIRLS students with information relating to the current library and information fields as well as a chance to interact with professionals in the different fields.
This Monday, 11 September, Jeremy Reeder will talk about career path planning. He currently works in the Maricopa County library system. He spoke in Phoenix this week and those who attended said he is an excellent speaker who shared some great information.
Here is the schedule of events for Tucson: We will have pizza in the SIRLS multipurpose room starting at 5:30pm. The speaker will talk at 6:00pm for approximately half an hour and will end with a Q&A session. The evening should conclude at 7:00pm.
We will attempt to capture and record the evenings to post online, either the SIRLS or LSO websites, for those distance students who cannot attend either evening. However, the current format is as yet unknown – so if you have experience in this area and would like to help, please contact me!
Please keep your eye on the LSO calendar for last minute changes and updates to the series at http://www.sir.arizona.edu/lso/calendar.htm. I look forward to this series and hope you are able to attend!
