CHICAGO The American Library Association’s (ALA) JobLIST Placement Center is now accepting appointments for complimentary career counseling sessions during the ALA 2015 Midwinter Meeting in Chicago.  Counseling sessions will be held in the JobLIST Placement Center, from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m, Saturday, Jan. 31 and Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015. The ALA JobLIST Placement Center will be located on level 3, hall F2 of McCormick Place West Convention Center.   

Any conference attendee can discuss how to start or recharge his career by meeting with a professional career counselor.  The counselor can guide you in strategizing for the first or next phase of your career, solving a problem in your current job situation, defining goals and/or rejuvenating your career. Each one-on-one session is 20 minutes and is completely confidential. 

Advance sign-up is now being accepted.  Although walk-ins are welcome, we suggest you sign up in advance as appointments go quickly.

This free service is provided as part of ALA’s continuing efforts to help job seekers retool their skills and prepare for job searches.
