The number one goal for many of us, whether we are fresh out of library school or not, is finding a job. And not just any job -- a job that we like, a job that we can grow in and learn from and feel proud of, a job that will enhance our skill sets and propel our careers. But the process of finding a job can be a difficult one and, at times, a long and treacherous journey. This hands-on workshop will help you feel more confident in your job search by giving you the tools to organize a search, analyze job listings, and write effective, compelling cover letters and resumes. We will also discuss the importance of creating, and maintaining, a professional online presence and look at examples of online portfolios and profiles on different platforms. All of which will help get you noticed -- in a good way, and get you one step closer to the interview.
