Importance of building a network

Job hunting can be more than finding jobs to apply for. Building a professional network can help you get your foot in the door. If possible, attend events (SNGG and NewCardigan run plenty that allow you to network in a relaxed and casual environment) and begin to develop a professional community. That way, you might hear about jobs before they’re even advertised. 

Once you find a job you want to apply for, get some advice on your resume with our Resume Review Service, which is available for ALIA members. Just send your resume, ALIA Member Number, and some information about the job you are applying for to alia.sngg.rrs@gmail.com. We will send your resume to an industry professional to review and provide you with feedback. You can also visit our Job Help Site to get more tips on your resume, responding to selection criteria, and interviews.

Finding jobs can be challenging but by using some of the above resources hopefully you stay on top of all the options available to you and snap up that job!

Do you have any resources or websites you like to use? We want to know!

Content creation (04/02/2020)

Join us for the first #AusLibChat of the decade as we talk content creation. Let’s share our struggles and our successes around developing resources that will help our communities. What’s your favourite platform, software and how do you develop an appropriate voice? Join in for an hour of professional development to learn and share.

Here are the questions we’ll be asking on the night:

Q1. What kind of content do you like to create? Blogs, newsletters, zines, video or something else entirely? Why do you like that format?

Q2. What is your greatest challenge when creating content?

Q3. How do you evaluate the success of your content to see if the message was clear, reached the right audience etc?

Q4. Did your studies cover effective content creation? Were you able to apply any theory gained in your workplace?

Q5. Challenge time! Share a piece of content that you’ve created. Are you happy with how it’s turned out?

Hope to see you all at 9pm AEDT on Tuesday February 4th for the first #AusLibChat of the year!
