Start Strong in Libraries: Kicking off Your Career provides library school students, new librarians, paraprofessionals, or those interested in working in libraries, with a free introductory training day focused on starting strong in libraries. This day-long event takes place on Thursday, November 8, prior to the start of the California Library Association (CLA) Annual Conference at the Santa Clara County Convention Center.

Start Strong was created by CLA President, Dolly Goyal and a dedicated team of passionate library professionals, with the intention of creating an accessible opportunity to learn what working in a library will be like at all career levels, what library leadership want to see in future staff, how CLA can help enhance their work in libraries and connect to peers and leaders in the field.

Featuring presentations from hiring managers and HR staff, library staff from all levels, and a special introduction from Jill Bourne, Director of San Jose Public Library and 2017 Librarian of the Year, in these sessions, expect to:

Hear about the experiences of those who successfully transitioned from school to a career in libraries.

Hear directly from directors and supervisors on what they value in new library staff and useful tips on having a successful interview.
Gain hands-on experience working through mock interviews and how to create a strong job application.

Learn what working in a library is actually like, from different staff perspectives.

Learn about the benefits of joining professional development association like CLA.

Connect with library leaders from academic, law, museum, public, and special libraries.

Hear from library leaders about why they do the work they do, and what resonates with them about the importance of the library field.

Lunch will be provided free of charge. Please indicate your free lunch preference here: https://goo.gl/forms/p0x2IFc782fyYb5a2. If you have special dietary needs, please plan on bringing your own meal.
