I’ve gone and got myself another hat to wear – I am now running the CILIP Yorkshire and Humberside Member Network blog. If you’re a local CILIP member you should definitely check it out and start following it to find out more about our events and activities. Even if you’re not a CILIP member you may find it interesting – and some of our events are open to non-members too. Click here to read the blog.
I’m going to be presenting at Manchester NLPN’s Summer Event! I’ve been a regular attendee at their events for a while now and am thrilled that they’ve let me come along to do a presentation at the next one. The theme of the event is “Interview tips and presentation skills” and the lineup of presenters sounds really great. I’m going to be giving a short talk about Library Society and how it’s helped me strengthen my “soft skills”. I’ll make the presentation available online afterwards so everyone can see it, but if you’re interested in coming along to the event, you definitely should! It’s on Saturday 19th July at the Friends Meeting House in Manchester and free tickets are available here.
I’ve contributed some thoughts on interviews for graduate traineeships to a blog post that’s all about being a graduate trainee, which you can read here on the Manchester New Library Professionals Network blog. You should read all their other stuff, too, by the way, it’s really good. And if you’re on Twitter, so are they! That’s here.
