Learning how to network, to build and create connections, and lead others effectively is key to career development and success. Whether one is looking for an internship, getting a first job, or changing career paths, networking not only serves as a needs-to-skills matchmaking process but also provides valuable information at every stage of the job search. It’s not just who you know but who knows you and knows what you do. This is especially true in the library and information science community.
BayNet recognizes this may seem like a daunting process so Mildred Arencibia, MLIS, a BayNet member, has created a series of pages that aim to provide information professionals in the San Francisco Bay Area with a “one-stop shop” of networking knowledge, tools, and local resources to be successful in their careers and job search.
