The New Members Round Table Mentoring Committee is seeking applicants for its 2016 – 2017 Career Mentoring Program.
The Career Mentoring Program will pair up early career librarians with “seasoned vets” who are available to answer questions and provide guidance about many aspects of the profession. The program will last from October 2016 to July 2017 and is entirely virtual.
Applicants should apply to be a mentee if they have been employed in a professional position for 6 months – 5 years and are seeking career guidance and advice from someone more experienced. Program mentors are those who have been a professional librarian for five years or more. ALA membership is required for mentors only, and NMRT membership is strongly encouraged.
As a ground rule, applicants should be able to communicate with their match at least twice per month via phone or e-mail. No conference attendance is required.
Applications are due September 30th with the goal of notifying the matching pairs by the week of October 17th.
