CHICAGO — The American Library Association’s (ALA) JobLIST Placement and Career Development Center will provide complimentary career counseling sessions on Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 9 - 10, 2016 during the ALA 2016 Midwinter Meeting in Boston.  The sessions will be held in the JobLIST Placement and Career Development Center which will be located in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.  Sign-up now.

Any conference attendee can 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 encouraged, as appointments go fast.  We will also accept walk-ins if there are available appointments.

This free service is provided as part of ALA’s continuing efforts to help members retool their skills, gain insight into career possibilities and prepare for job searches.

Our career development consultant and coach, Caitlin Williams, Ph.D., works with individuals and organizations to create and implement professional development initiatives. She focuses on helping professionals leverage their talents in ways that truly make a difference.
