SPOTLIGHT SESSION: The Experts Are In!: One-Off Career Advice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you have a vexing workplace issue and are not sure where to turn?  Are you facing a career decision and would like some advice from senior SLA members who have “been there”?  Using a speed dating format, you will have the opportunity to run your challenge past some of SLA’s most knowledgeable and experienced members as they act as a sounding board and give you their take on your situation.  This is not a résumé review or assistance with a job search, but rather a chance to pose a question you were afraid to ask and get an answer from some of the most seasoned professionals in our industry.
