New ALIA Sydney May Event.

ALIA Sydney Presents: 10 tips for getting that job - The do’s and don’ts when applying for a new position

Getting a new job can be a time consuming process that requires skill, strategy and preparation. It means painstakingly putting together an application and jumping through all sorts of hoops to be selected as the number one candidate in the recruitment process.

Come and hear recruitment professionals that have been actively involved in this process share their top 10 tips of what you should and shouldn’t do to make you stand out from the crowd in the Library and Information profession. These will be based on resume writing, addressing the selection criteria and the interview.

These professionals will also share some heart-warming success stories, spine chilling horror stories and of course, their own experiences.

You will also be given the opportunity to have specific questions addressed and to share experiences through group discussion.

Speakers will be from the sectors of:
·         Tertiary: Adrianne Harris, UNSW
·         Government: Vanessa Blackmore, Law Courts
·         Recruitment agencies
-        Nell Hirst, Zenith
-        Catherine Hill, OneUmbrella

Date: Monday 28th May
Time: 6.00pm (for a 6:30pm start) – 8.30pm
Venue: UTS Library
Cost: $7 members, $10 Non Members (Pay at the door. It would be wonderful if you could bring the correct change on the night.)

It will be wonderful to see you all there, especially if you were inspired by our last event on career progression! This is the down to earth counterpart to all those dreams you have been having!

Bruce and I are very excited about this event and we are sure it will not only be useful to information professionals at all stages of their careers, but will also be a lot of fun.

Always a pleasure.
