The beginnings of our careers are jam-packed with transitions. During his four years at the University of Rochester River Campus Libraries, Tyler Dzuba has experienced a number of early-career transitions: unemployed to first professional position, trainee to supervisor, professionally absent to nationally engaged, and follower to leader. In this program, Tyler will discuss his own experiences with growing into roles as a new librarian, contextualize with the richly diverse experiences of his colleagues, and facilitate a Q&A about attendees’ aspirations toward leadership, professional success, and service to the communities we support. Attendees can expect to come away buzzing with ideas about their future careers and how they’ll connect the dots to get there.
There will be significant time for Q&A during the webinar, but attendees are encouraged to submit questions and relevant experiences ahead of time. Please fill out this questionnaire ahead of time if you have questions or experiences to contribute:
