Job Hunting and Career Growth: an #SLAtalk!
SLA’s first Twitter chat of 2013 will focus on finding a job, and growing within that role. Tune-in to enjoy tips from both colleagues and SLA’s vendor partners.
Two sessions will be held so information professionals across the globe can participate at a convenient time.
2 choices on Tuesday, March 5th
Session #1 at 18:30 GMT (1:30 pm Eastern / 10:30 am Pacific)
Session #2 at 00:00 GMT (7:00 pm Eastern / 4:00 pm Pacific)
Questions to answer:
- What’s a successful job hunting method that helped you land you your current job?
- What’s a profession-specific way you’ve prepared for an interview that worked for you?
- What are key organizational traits you look for during an interview or online job search?
- How did you empower yourself to move ahead at your job? or what skills did you learn which led to your career growth?
…or ask your own question/share your own idea related to this topic!
Tag your answers with #SLAtalk and the number of the question you’re answering. For those wondering, #SLAchat is now used by the fine folks at Sporting Life Arkansas.
