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!

Event Wrap Up: Talk, Collaborate and Listen!

On Wednesday 30th October, ALIA SNGG NSW held a workshop called Talk, Collaborate and Listen, run by Sally Turbitt. This was a replay of her popular workshop from NLS9 in Adelaide earlier this year.

Talk Collaborate Listen-2

During the workshop, participants were encouraged to think about their personal values, and we began this process by looking at Sally’s own values list, and then brainstorming other values that could go on such a list.

Participants had time to work on their own lists and discuss their values with other participants, and the final lists (although always works in progress) will help them find the positions that are right for them.

The next key part of the workshop was collaboration.  Participants created a list of questions they had about the GLAMR industry and we collaborated together with ideas as to the answers to those questions or where the answers could be found. Sally also shared some tips she gleaned through a Twitter discussion, which anyone can benefit from, even if they weren’t able to attend the workshop.IMG_1407.JPG

Participants came away from the event feeling empowered to move forward in their GLAMR careers and build professional networks.
