The Joy of LIS: Open Evening at #citylis
Yesterday Donald and I popped over to City University to glimpse the future of the LIS profession (i.e. the Postgraduate open evening). There we were treated to an engaging presentation from a sparkly @lynrobinson (and @ernestopriego – also sporting sparkles) on the Information Science and Library Science courses available at #citylis, their place in the wider world and the all important skills to be gained.
We were joined by current students and representatives from CILIP, and for the prospective students it was an opportunity to quiz us all on the profession and get an overview of the state of the job market. For us it was a chance to meet our future candidates (and clients), and to spread a little happiness as the job market is looking rather more lively than it has in recent years.
At SHR it’s always been important to us that our candidates know we’re here to offer support throughout their careers so we’ll jump at any chance to meet new and aspiring professionals and introduce them to joys of networking!
