Getting Hired in Public Libraries Panel on Thursday, March 13th, at 6:00pm

The BCLA/CLA Student Chapter is excited to announce our next event, open to all students of SLAIS! We will be holding a Getting Hired in Public Libraries Panel on Thursday, March 13th, at 6:00pm. 

Students will have the opportunity to listen to six panelists from all facets of public library service describe their experience with the hiring process and give advice for students entering the field. Following the panel, there will be time for socializing with the panelists over refreshments. This is an excellent opportunity to meet professionals in the library field and gain valuable insights regarding the hiring process. It is also one of few events at SLAIS that specifically addresses public libraries, so don’t miss out!

Panelists include:

Deb Hutchison Koep, Deputy Director, Technology and Technical Services, West Vancouver Memorial Library
Kathy Payne, Human Resource Consultant, Vancouver Public Library
Susan Everall, Manager, Neighbourhood Services, Vancouver Public Library
Lindsey Pagnucco, Teen Services Librarian, Vancouver Public Library
Cara Pryor, Head of Community, Program, and Service Development, North Vancouver City Library
Amy Ashmore, Youth Services Librarian, Surrey Libraries

Not interested in public libraries? This event is still for you! Much of the discussion and advice dispensed will hold true for all kinds of library positions and fields.

Please join us for Getting Hired in Public Libraries on Thursday, March 13th, at 6:00pm in the Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, room 261.
