LSO and UA’s Library Science Librarian, Mary Feeney, are sponsoring an afternoon of individual resume consultations for all current SIRLS students. Consultations will be conducted on Friday October 13, 2006 between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m (light refreshments provided) in room A314 of the UA Main Library. These half hour sessions will allow each student have a professional look at their resumes and provide a critique and suggestions on the resume. Our volunteers work in a variety of library and information fields so we will do our best to match your interest with someone currently in that field. For distance students or those unable to meet in person, we are now offering virtual consultations during that week.
We suggest having a particular job in mind so that the resume can be tailored and there are known areas to address. If you have more than one job in mind, feel free to sign up for multiple sessions if the jobs fall in different library/information fields.
Consultation times will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis so be sure to register early! Registration ends October 3, 2006. We will notify you by email no later than October 6 of the time of your appointment. We request that individuals who sign up for a session and then find out they cannot attend to please contact us so that we can allow another student to consult with the volunteers.
For virtual consultations, fill out the form with all the requested information, and make sure to mark the “Virtual Consultation” check box. Once you have submitted your request, email your resume to Mary Feeney by October 8th. She will forward your resume on to the appropriate consultant, who will then get back to you with comments and suggestions by October 16th.
Please fill out a request online at http://www.sir.arizona.edu/lso/ResumeConsult2.htm. Also, regularly check our LSO calendar for updates. We also have updated out links to resume builders and tips for those preparing their resumes.
For those who atttended last year, feel free to post comments on your experiences! Please post any questions or comments here or email me directly.
