Target Audience: Librarians who envisage changing positions over the course of their careers

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to identify issues that arise as they begin to pursue a new position in the future.
2. Participants will be equipped to update their own documents, techniques, and tools when pursuing new employment.

Many graduates fresh out of library school know how to prepare for the process of getting their first job. Yet, many are not as prepared when they are ready to apply for a lateral or promotional position. Similar to last year's round-robin poster session, "What Is It You Do Again?", each poster station will discuss a key issue that needs to be addressed before pursuing your next career move. Issues to be addressed include: updating and rewriting your resume, interviewing do's and don'ts, jumping to a new kind of library, networking, and tools AALL offers such as the Career Center and Members Only section. Participants will listen to a short presentation by the poster creator, and then have the opportunity to ask questions. Participants will be notified when it's time to move to the next station, where the process begins again.
