Workshop: Networking and Goal Setting for Archivists

Networking and Goal Setting for Archivists Workshop

Whether you’ve landed your dream job in archives or you’re just getting your career started, we can all benefit from thoughtful and intentional goal setting, finding ways to grow personally and professionally, and developing a network of people who can inspire, support, and guide us. In this personalized, career-development-oriented workshop we will focus on identifying and setting professional goals, making an actionable plan, building your networking skills,and developing a mentoring circle to help you reach the next level in your career.

This will be an interactive, personal, and career-focused workshop. We hope participants will feel comfortable sharing career aspirations and participating in group brainstorming/networking sessions. Participants will leave with a new network of professional peers, an individualized plan that includes actionable career goals for the short term, and a map of their developmental network.
