What advice would you give to someone just joining NMRT this year? First, be open to considering nontraditional information agencies in your job search. There are many more opportunities to be had when allowing for a variety of workplace settings. Second, take advantage of everything that NMRT has to offer including awards, grants, publication opportunity in Endnotes, and the Resume Review service.
