Posted by on
Yes, we’re going to be in the ALA Placement Center again this conference! Meet up with us Sunday, June 24. Informal meet up at NOON with the event at 1:30-3:00.
Are you aware that an MLIS might qualify you to work as a social media specialist, program planner, web content manager, writer, or editor? Did you know that many of these positions are available now through the Federal government?
We invite you to join us on Sunday, June 24 for an eye-opening workshop about the types of federal job opportunities accessible to the MLIS degree holder. We’ll hear from the professional librarians who have firsthand experience within these positions, as they explore and discuss the types of careers available to new and upcoming MLIS graduates who have an interest in working for federal libraries.
Join us at noon for some light refreshments, followed by a panel discussion at 1:30 PM, and Q&A until 3:00PM. Attendees can use this opportunity to network with and get advice from the MLIS professionals working in federal positions. Learn about job opportunities from Julius Jefferson (Congressional Research Service), Michelle Chronister (GSA), and Virginia Sanchez (Dept. Homeland Security) and more!
This workshop is free and open to all. New and upcoming MLIS graduates are highly encouraged to attend. Careers in Federal Libraries is sponsored by LSU School of Library and Information Science. Registration not required.
