The American Library Association’s (ALA) JobLIST Placement and Career Development Center will offer complimentary career coaching sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, June 16 & 17, 2021 in preparation for the ALA 2021 Annual Conference. Sign-up now while appointments are still available.


Get inspiration to start or recharge your 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. Perhaps you have been laid-off or foresee a lay-off in the future. These sessions can also help in determining your next move. Each one-on-one session is 20 minutes and completely confidential.


Our career development 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. She has been working with ALA for more than 20 years.


If you plan to meet with employers at our virtual Job Fair on Sunday, June 27th, you should prepare yourself by meeting with the career coach. Advance sign-up for a career coaching session is encouraged, as appointments go fast.


The ALA JobLIST Placement & Career Development Center is managed by the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment (HRDR).
