Change It Up: Growing your Career in a Wildly Different Organization

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Take your professional development to the next level, curb burnout, and seize new possibilities with a move to a wildly different organization. Join us for a session on growing your career "up" or "out" by transitioning to a different size or type of organization.

The presenters have worked in academic libraries (large and small, public and private); for library vendors; and in public libraries of varying sizes. Hear their perspectives on the opportunities, surprises, and lessons learned in changing up their work environs.

Objectives:


  • Identify opportunities for professional growth that a change in organizational type, structure, and size can provide. 

  • Determine whether you, too, can spur renewed growth in your professional development/career in a wildly different type library. 

  • Better evaluate the qualifications of applicants with experience in a much different setting.
