Join the Special Libraries Association (SLA) at Lillian H. Smith Library for an engaging discussion about post-MLS career experiences!

Attendees will hear from a panel of 5 information professionals as they look back at their early career experiences and discuss what they wish they knew when they were first starting out in the job market after graduating from library school. This year we will be focusing the discussion around how to plan your professional development as a new Info Pro and what sort of PD activities the panel recommends to help you stand out.
