It’s lining up to be an exciting full day of papers and activities in the What Next! Information to Enhance the Career of New Graduates stream, with papers and assistance available for students, new graduates and not-so-new graduates! Check out the program for the full range of papers and the workshop that will be held on the day.
Students are reminded that they are eligible for a heavily reduced rate of only $400 (earlybird) for the whole conference, a great way to learn practical skills, hear about real-world experiences and network, network, network!
ALIA members with less than five years since graduation are reminded that the ALIA Board of Directors and the ALIA New Generation Advisory Committee are giving you the opportunity to attend ALIA Access for free, just fill out the application form that was sent out to the ALIAnewgrad elist and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 21 June 2010. If you’re not a member yet, get your membership in now and register!
Job seekers and those wanting to polish up their resume will have the chance to have their resumes reviewed by experienced library and information professionals in the relaxed surrounds of the on-site coffee shop.
And as for networking, networking, networking, in addition to those events that are part of the Access program, due to popular demand, the New Grads at the Pub event made so popular at NLS4 in Melbourne is being revived, with a special after-drinks dinner & drinks (self-funded) on the Wednesday evening at Brisbane’s historic Plough Inn, only 5 minutes walk (600m) from the Convention Centre.
We can’t wait to see you at the Conference!
