  • WHAT OTHERS DO YOU KNOW?
  • Do some brainstorming after the 2 nd bullet
  • What you are looking at are your strengths and weaknesses. No one is great in all areas, but everyone has places where they excel. For example, are you uncomfortable talking in front of large groups? A great number of people are. This would affect your approach to the business community. Obviously, you would not speak at a Rotary meeting as your initial overture. Are you a resident with strong local contacts outside of school? These keep you aware of major concerns which you can address from the library perspective.
