The Covid-19 pandemic caused a devastating effect on the job market for librarians, archivists, and library students. Many institutions were forced to have layoffs and hiring freezes that in turn left Information Professionals without work. For those in our field fortunate enough to remain employed, the opportunities for growth at many institutions were paused due to financial circumstances related to the pandemic crisis. As the job market rebounds and libraries begin to hire en masse to fill these vacancies, many information professions now also find themselves interested in exploring new opportunities. But while the rebounding job market can be an encouraging and empowering sign, many emerging (and seasoned!) professionals may feel fatigue, burnout, and apprehension in the wake of the past few years of unprecedented uncertainty and stress. Would-be applicants may feel rusty, concerned, or anxious about their resumes, cover letters, presence in an interview - or battle impostor syndrome as they question whether to apply at all. In this workshop, interested parties can drop in and speak with seasoned professionals about interview tactics, resume help, and to discuss on an individual basis any circumstances or anxieties that might complicate a reentry into this new job landscape. This workshop is open to those who are hiring new candidates and seeking to thoughtfully select a colleague from a large and qualified pool of applicants. This is an opportunity for ARLIS members to seek and receive feedback in a collaborative and supportive environment designed to equip and embolden our members to pursue new opportunities with confidence. This is a Drop-In Workshop where participants can come receive professional feedback.
