Calling all DC Area Federal Librarians! FEDLINK Intern Fair and Speed Mentoring Event – October 19th, 2016

Shared from the Federal Librarians Listserv. Note: If you are a MLS/MLIS student and you are able to get to DC for this, it looks like a great opportunity. – Travis Ferrell, DMIL Student Liaison Coordinator
———————————————————-
The FEDLINK Education Working Group is planning a library school student intern fair and speed mentoring event on Wednesday, October 19th from 12:30 to 4:30 pm at the Library of Congress, Madison Building.
The event will include:
  • A presentation on Pathways programs by a representative from OPM – this will be for the benefit of both the students and the federal librarians who are interesting in recruiting.
  • An intern fair with booths for each participating library to share information about internship opportunities.
  • A speed mentoring session with students and experienced librarians.
Intern Fairs and Speed Mentoring both encourage and promote the next generation of leaders by providing students with a forum to meet with professionals to discuss career experiences and to learn firsthand what tools are needed to excel in their fields.  These types of events are especially important to library school students attempting to garner more of the knowledge and expertise required to succeed in their chosen field of librarianship.  They also provide an opportunity for professional librarians and library administrators to give back to the profession as well as find fantastic new additions for their own staffs.
Please register your interest in participating at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/R93JT8J or by contacting me using the information below.
Thank you,
