Transferring Your Skills as a Librarian to Any Profession Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, March 27, 2019, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

The skills you learn in library school are valuable in a huge variety of professional settings. These "transferable skills" are part of a library degree, but they make us desirable candidates for jobs in a variety of different fields. If you are wondering which skills transfer and how, this event is for you.

This workshop will bridge that gap between the skills we gained as undergraduates, the skills we develop as graduates, the observations we have made in our experiences, and the needs we encounter in our careers. Examples and guidance will center around music and music libraries but will be applicable to any type of library and may easily transfer to professionals in any field.

After participating in this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Evaluate the needs of an unfamiliar work situation
  • Chart a course of action to handle any professional environment
  • Connect those potential actions with learned skills to complete the actions effectively.

While completing your purchase, fill in the name and e-mail address of the participant who will sign in to the event by clicking the "Attendees" button to the right of the item in your cart. This individual will receive an e-mail from WebEx confirming registration before the event begins. Attendees should add messenger@webex.com to their approved email sender list, so they can ensure that they receive the automatic notifications.

This is an online event hosted through WebEx. Further technical information is available at the ALA Store FAQ page.
