Librarians and information professionals possess many marketable skills that can be adapted to organize, access and unlock the value of their organization’s or clients’ paper, digital and knowledge information assets. This can be an opportunity in a current job, in securing a new position or in starting a new business.
This workshop will offer practical advice to help information professionals identify and expand their existing skill set and develop new areas of expertise to broaden their career potential and maximize their earnings. We will also examine alternative jobs and career paths for librarians and information professionals. Workshop attendees will develop an action plan to assure continued employment or pursue new career opportunities commensurate with their existing talents and expertise.
Past workshop attendees have said:
“Very good organization and content AND extremely timely for today’s job market.”

“I left the workshop motivated to branch out.”
“I was impressed by the positive attitude of the speakers as this is very helpful to those who are facing unemployment or underemployment.”
