Transcript

  • 1. By Sarah Horton Smith<br />Organizing a Career in Federal Libraries Panel<br />
  • 2. Benefits of Panel Format<br />It’s relatively inexpensive <br />Multiple panelists give the audience multiple perspectives on what careers in Federal Libraries are like<br />Allows you to showcase the wide variety of jobs available in Federal Libraries<br />Having multiple panelists allows for the event to continue in the event of last minute cancelations and other disasters. <br />

Preplan<br />How many panelists do should we have? <br />I recommend 4 or 5 <br />When should we hold the event?<br />I recommend as early into the year/semester as possible<br />Where should we hold the event?<br />You might want to “rent out” a classroom or auditorium depending on the size of your school<br />
  • 6. Local Federal Libraries <br />Military Academies<br />Veterans Hospitals<br />Presidential Libraries<br />Federal Courts<br />Contractors<br />Law firms that handle Federal cases<br />
  • 7. Getting Everybody Together<br />
  • 8. Advertising the event<br />Flyers<br />Emailing listserv<br />Facebook, Twitter, etc<br />

List of Questions For the Panel<br />Always prepare a list of sample questions for your panel <br />What is your typical day like?<br />What do you wish you would have known if you were a student?<br />What classes do you recommend?<br />www.quintcareers.com<br />Informational Interviews<br />
  • 10. Doing the Panel<br />Have all your panelists speak for 5-10 minutes <br />Ask your prepared questions<br />Open up questions for the audience<br />Plan it to be about 1 and a half hours long<br />
