Hi WA Students and New Grads (SNGG)! As your new WA Regional Coordinators, we look forward to providing you with opportunities to network, explore professional possibilities and learn new skills. We are kicking off 2018 with our exciting initiative, GLAMRMatch. We’re also planning a social get together in March so that you can meet the new team and we can learn more about you!
Based on the principles of reciprocity and knowledge-sharing, the WA chapters of ALIA Students and New Graduates Group,
Australian Society of Archivists, and Curtin University Information Studies Group (CURTIS) are piloting a one-on-one networking experience.
● An established GLAMR practitioner?
● A GLAMR student, recent graduate, early career professionals, or practitioner that is
considering changing career streams?
And, are you willing to share your knowledge about your workplace, professional experiences,
or education and/or interested in learning about the workplace practices of another GLAMR
Our aim is to create a connection between two people, one that provides an opportunity for both
to learn a little bit about the other person’s current work or recent studies.
The concept is simple:
● 1 hour meet-up with no ongoing commitment for either party
● Established practitioners to provide a guided tour of their GLAMR facility
● Visiting GLAMR student/professionals to share recent learnings, motivations or sectoral
Express your interest in taking part in the pilot now by filling out the below survey: https://curtin.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_e2t1gDBV82ODIMJ

Attention recent and soon-to-be graduates! The ALIA Student and New Graduates Group is starting a new pilot initiative: a resume review service to support your job seeking process. Whether you’re applying for a specific job or just need general advice, we can arrange to have your resume reviewed by an experienced professional.
Eligibility for a review during the pilot for this initiative:
- Recently qualified library technician or librarian, or current student in a library technician or library programme in Australia. Professionals returning to the workforce after a hiatus are also welcome.
- AND current ALIA member
Please note: there is a limit of three reviews per year
How to request a review:
Send an email to email@example.com with the subject line ‘Resume review request’ and include the following information in the email:
- Your resume attached as a Word document (.doc, .docx, or .rtf)
- Your name and email address
- Your ALIA number
- The job posting to which you’re applying (include an active link or file attachment). If you’re not applying for a specific position, describe the type of position you plan to seek, including type of library (e.g., public, academic, special) and type of duties (e.g., technical services, reference and instruction, etc).
- A list of any specific aspects of the resume that you’d like the reviewer to focus on.
What to expect:
You will receive a reply from your reviewer within two weeks with advice on how to improve your resume, based on his or her experience and expertise. The review is confidential. Your documents will be handled by this service’s coordinators and viewed by the reviewer only. Your files will be deleted after the review is complete. Your name and email address will be stored in a Google Spreadsheet, which is accessible only to the service coordinators.
