Leave your comfort zone behind! Break out your resume, job description and a red pen. Whether you are an entry level librarian or a Director, the Lean Up panelists will inspire you to raise your career expectations.
The morning panel, moderated by Jean O’Grady, includes a C-Level Recruiter and two librarians, Bob Oaks and Bill Scarborough, who have reached the C–Level or have leveraged their library experience into non-traditional career paths. Bob Oaks is the Chief Library and Records Officer at Latham and Watkins. Bill Scarborough, has taken a different trajectory from Library Director to roles in Human Resources, CIO, and law firm Executive Director. They will be joined by Rodney L. Abstone, II a dynamic C-Level recruiter, who will focus on how to analyze your resume and your job description to assure that you are not underselling your true value. This will be a highly interactive session which will engage you in understanding how to identify and market your highest value skills.
