Well, What Now? A Series for Mid-Career Librarians

Well, What Now? A Series for Mid-Career Librarians

Join NJLA, LibraryLinkNJ, and MentorNJ as we explore the big question: “What now?”

Many of us want to grow and develop in our careers — but that growth and development doesn’t look the same for every person. Some want to become supervisors and administrators, others are looking to make changes in the focus or scope of their work, and still others may be considering an entirely new path.

With a focus on mid-career librarians (though library staff of all types and experience levels are welcome to join us), this programming series will look at what’s out there for anyone trying to decide what comes next. How do you know what your next big (or small) move should be? What are your options for moving up, moving over, or moving on? And once you decide, how can you get there? Join us for a series of free webinars, panel discussions, and workshops designed to help you answer these questions and more.
