Speed Career Event: An Evening of Mentoring & Networking
Organized by Clara Cabrera, Jo Polanco and Lisa Lopez
Join us for an evening with experienced professionals in Library and Information Science. We welcome current students, recent LIS graduates who are interested in learning about the career opportunities, as well as current employees considering a move.
During the event, a mentor will chat with each mentee for about 10 minutes to answer questions about the mentor's position, experience or field of library work, then move on to the next mentee.
This is a dynamic, fun and chance to network.
