Subject: Calling all DC Area Federal Librarians! Federal Library Intern Fair and Speed Mentoring Event – November 1st, 2017
FEDLINK’s Education Working Group and the Catholic University of America Department of Library & Information Science will be co-hosting a federal library school student intern fair and speed mentoring event on Wednesday, November 1st from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, in the atrium of Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law. Students from all library schools will be invited.
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.
Librarians will have an opportunity to recruit interns and/or mentor future librarians. No previous experience as a mentor is needed and this will be a one-time mentoring session.
