Call for ARLIS/NA & VRA Career Mentoring Applicants

The 2011 Career Mentoring Workshop will be offered on Thursday, March 24th from 8 a.m. to Noon at the Minneapolis conference.  It is open to ARLIS/NA and VRA members, and is free of charge.

We are calling for mentor applicants as well as mentees.

The workshop is the catalyst for a year-long Career Mentoring Program, the purpose of which is to provide training tools necessary to create and maintain a successful mentoring relationship.  Selected applicants will be paired with a partner from their respective professional association(s) with similar interests, time commitment requirements, and geographic location (when possible).  Both partners participate in a self-directed, year-long program based on shared goals.

This program is for you if you:

  • are interested in gaining additional perspectives on professional issues
  • want to set goals and define your professional working relationship with another colleague
  • are capable of communicating on a regular basis with your partner
  • can commit to a year-long project

Members of the subcommittee will maintain contact with the mentoring pairs throughout the year to advise and trouble-shoot if needed.

Space in this competitive program is limited.  Participation in the 4-hour workshop at the annual conference is mandatory. Due to the nature of this program, we cannot accommodate walk-in participants at the conference workshop.
