Atlanta Emerging Librarians meeting, Saturday July 12

Attention Atlanta MLIS students, new grads and other library job-seekers.  Copying and pasting from the event flyer:

Join us for the second meeting of the Atlanta Emerging Librarians Meetup Group! This group is intended to help library students and new librarians in the Atlanta area to learn and network.

Belinda DeLisser of Cadence Group will discuss how  to prepare and interview for open positions and demonstrate an incorrect and a correct interview.

Jason Puckett of Emory University will discuss creating a personal website as a tool for networking and personal promotion: how to set up a site, how to make it a portfolio that’s more engaging than your resume and how to use it to connect with other online librarians.

There will also be time for you to mingle and snack with your colleagues. Library science students, new librarians, and job seekers are all welcome to attend.

  1. Turns out I can’t make it — that’s my weekend to work, and I can’t swap with anyone since just about all my other weekends are booked. Best of luck!

    In the meantime, I really do need to pick your brain a bit academic librarianship as a career.

  2. I may actually be speaking at the September (?) meeting as well, so don’t feel too crushed.

    I don’t claim to be an authority, but I’d be glad to let you pick my brain — drop me an e-mail.

  3. Thanks for speaking at our meeting. Your presentation was excellent!!

  4. I loved doing it, Julie! Thanks!
