Professional Practice Series: Developing a Vision & Cultivating a Career Path

What do you know about yourself as a professional or professional-to-be? What work is most meaningful for you? It is important to visualize a destination: Who will you work with? What will you help them accomplish? Whether you’re a library student — just beginning to think through what your life as a working professional might be; or a seasoned veteran — wondering if there is a new and different position in your future; or anywhere in-between, developing a sense of where you want to go and visualizing a path forward will not only set you off in the right direction, but may help you do the best, most energized and rewarding work of your professional life.

During this interactive session, we will explore ways in which we can take deliberate action to develop the next steps of our own career paths with a goal of ultimately reaching our desired destinations, and cultivating the futures we envision.

Bring a notebook for journaling, and ideas and questions to share.

Join the ACRL/NY New Librarians Discussion Group and Mentoring Program for an exploration of this topic and networking with colleagues! Refreshments will be served.
