Career Development Dialogue: Job and Salary Negotiations

Presented By:

Presentation Description:

Job and salary negotiations are important components of professional life for which many feel ill prepared. The upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic changed many norms in our professional environment, especially for many in the library and information science profession given the technological, demographic and societal changes. Is remote work an option for LIS professionals? How do we understand our worth in the job market? These questions (and others) will be discussed with a panel of leaders from the information profession.

This webinar is part of a series of webinars associated with the ALISE Leadership Academy 2022. Attendance at the webinars is highly encouraged, but not required to register for the Leadership Academy.


Thank you to San Jose State University School of Information for sponsoring the 2022 Leadership Academy.
