New Librarian Abroad
Erin Clupp
Tuesday, October 25 | 12 - 1 PM  FREE

"Are you a new graduate and having a difficult time landing that first library job? Have you always wanted to work abroad but were too afraid to take the plunge? Do you like to travel and meet new and exciting people? If you answered yes to any of these, why not consider looking overseas for a fulfilling career? While it is a very personal decision, I was surprised to see the diversity in people who come to work abroad: all age groups, singles, married couples and families, men, women, all professions.
Please join me for my webinar and learn about some of the experiences I have had working and living as a librarian abroad and see if it could also be right for you!

Your Super Powers At Work
Sophia Apostol
Wednesday, October 26 | 12:30 - 1:30PM 

In high-stakes situations, most people get nervous, start to doubt themselves, and then get flustered and self-conscious. These feelings are driven by our inner Saboteurs as they emotionally hijack us.

Join Sophia Apostol, a Certified Professional Coach, as she shares how to outsmart the Saboteur and tap into your Super Powers instead, so that you show up as the best version of yourself in any situation. This workshop will be interactive, and you'll receive tools to put to use right away in both your work life and home life.

In advance of the session, please take this free Saboteur Quiz that will help you identify YOUR Saboteurs:



Nailing the Interview: Advice for Successful Job Hunting
Melanie Parlette-Stewart & Ali Versluis
Tuesday, November 8 | 2 - 3PM  FREE

Interviews are daunting. The presenters of this webinar have recently been on both sides of the interview table and successfully navigated the process. They will provide an overview of what a typical academic library interview looks like, insight about the hiring committee, and tips and tricks that they've learned along the way. They will use their own experiences to give a personalized perspective on the job hunting process. Sometimes reading a job description can feel like learning a new language. These two will help you demystify this language by practicing how to read between the lines of recently posted job descriptions.



Rejected: Navigating Interview Season in Library Land
Natalie Colaiacovo
Tuesday, November 22 | 12 - 1PM  FREE

Applying for library-related jobs can be discouraging, panic-inducing, and a lot of work. MLIS students and recent graduates are wading through a murky landscape of job postings featuring qualifications that seem to apply more readily to the position of superhero than librarian. Learn tips for managing time and expectations throughout the application process from a new professional who recently battled interview season and survived. This informal session will share strategies about how to frame experience for non-traditional and special library positions at each point in the interview process from developing a resume and cover letter, to preparing for in-person interviews and presentations.

This session is part of the Bright Young Minds webinar series.
