Nov. 9th 8pm EST: Job Hunting Twitter Chat, hosted by SNAP

Are you an LIS student or recent graduate on the job hunt or preparing for it in the near future? Are you a new or experienced archivist with insights to share from your experience as an applicant or on a search committee? Please join the SAA Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable for our November 9th #snaprt Twitter chat about the experience of embarking on the professional job hunt for the first time.

For our chat on embarking of the professional job hunt on November 9 at 8 PM ET, we will pose questions such as:

  • What is the best piece of advice you’ve received regarding job applications?
  • What qualities do you look for in a job? Why are they important to you?
  • What have you found to be the most valuable resources in the job hunt (people, websites, or anything else)?
  • What is the experience of working on applications like? What types of things do you struggle with?
  • What aspects of your resume do you think have helped you the most?

We welcome archivists of all experience levels to join or keep up with the chat using the #snaprt hashtag. If you have a question, discussion topic, or resource related to the theme this month, please send it to @SNAP_Section on Twitter, or submit it through the anonymous web form on the #snaprt chat page
