ALA Annual Conference & Exhibition<br />How I Landed My First Librarian Position, And What I Did ‘In Between’ (REFORMA)  <br />Moderator: Jessica Hernandez, Librarian, FDA Biosciences Library, U.S. Food and Drug Administration<br />DESCRIPTION: <br /> New library professionals have been particularly affected by today’s economic climate. Facing a tough job market, many are unemployed, underemployed, or employed outside the field. This program features panelists that have successfully leveraged extended periods of job seeking into fantastic job offers. Current students and recent graduates will receive honest, hard-hitting advice on how to maximize their “in between” time, as well as glean inspiration from peers that have finally landed their first librarian position.<br />
