The American Library Association’s (ALA) JobLIST Placement and Career Development Service will offer complimentary career coaching sessions on Wednesday and Thursday, January 18 & 19, 2022. 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 you 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 expect to apply for a new job, plan to interview with employers soon, or just want to be ready for new opportunities within the library and information work  environment, you should prepare yourself by meeting with the career coach. Advance sign-up for career coaching sessions is encouraged, as appointments go fast.


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