Chapter Event: LIS Career Day this Saturday 4/16/16

From the ARLIS/NA New York Chapter, which is supporting this event:

Join METRO for LIS Career Day on Saturday, April 16!

Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is uniting local professional community members that students, new grads, and transitioning professionals need to know — topping National Library Week off with a bang!

This event features two practical, career-oriented panels, as well as library vendors, hiring managers, professional organization representatives, internship managers, and library school faculty to join us to share their knowledge. You’ll leave the event with lots of resources and introductions to experienced professionals to help you start (or re-start) your library career.

Borough of Manhattan Community College, Richard Harris Terrace 
199 Chambers Street, New York, NY 10007

Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (EDT)

This event is free but space is limited.
