The next ILA Career Pathway Talk Series webinar, “No Experience Necessary: How Career Changers Can Find Success in Librarianship”, will take place on Wednesday, March 16, from 12:00 to 1:00 PM CDT. This discussion, part of the ILA Noon Network Webinar Series and sponsored by the ILA Students and New Professionals Roundtable Forum (SANP), will feature three panelists: Amy Dittmeier of the Blue Island Public Library, Tammy Hansen of the Illinois State Library in Springfield, and Adrienne Radzvickas of CARLI. A description of the webinar is below.

For many, librarianship is a second or third career choice after years of working in a different industry. While librarianship thrives on individuals who are wise and knowledgeable in a variety of fields, for career-changers it may be difficult to find your footing. Whether you’re seeking out your first library job for your resume or navigating a new workplace, changing careers is a difficult feat. In this edition of the Career Pathway Talk Series, hear from three panelists who have successfully navigated career changes and entered librarianship. They’ll discuss leveraging transferable skills and the key to finding success in your own career path.
