BiblioTemps Presents: Creating a Professional Network
Creating a Professional Network: Tips and Tools that work for everyone, but especially Introverts!
Networking is considered an important part of professional development. Who you know can influence what you are able to do, questions you can ask, and the ways in which you are able to build your career and professional knowledge. Networking, however, is not always easy for those who tend towards introversion and LIS is a professional known for its introverts. How, then, do you build a professional network when you’re not an extrovert? The workshop will consider paths for developing a professional network based on your interests and goals.
