SLA TSG's workshop - Professional Packaging: Easy Ways to Promote Yourself as a Professional with Ulla de Stricker

Join Ulla de Stricker and the SLA Toronto Student Group for a workshop on Professional Packaging!

Information professionals must constantly explain what we do and why it's worthwhile for employers to pay us for doing it. This workshop will draw on the ideas from the book, The Information and Knowledge Professional's Career Handbook: Define and Create Your Success, that Ulla co-authored with Jill Hurst-Wahl. Topics discussed will include:

  • Determining what organizations offer you a good professional "fit"
  • Using promotional activities to increase awareness of your organizational role
  • Fashioning the value message
  • Choosing and crafting a professional image

Date: Tuesday, April 3
Time: 12:10pm-1:30pm
Location: Room 728, Claude Bissell
