Career Expo

One of the main goals of the Library and Information Science Student Association (LISSA) is to provide professional development opportunities to students. For Graduate Student Appreciation week, LISSA chose to focus finding that first job out of graduate school and on the wide variety of potential careers that are available to SLIS graduates. Questions were created by students for SLIS alumni to answer about their current position, job duties, and how their degree from SLIS plays a role in their career. LISSA hopes that these career videos help SLIS students whether they are at the beginning of the program, or about to graduate!
