SCARLA & MI Colloquium present: "Post MI-Employment: the First Five Years", featuring recent alumni Michael Murphy, Chelsea Rizzolo, and Victoria Sun. April 16, 2024, 7:00 p.m.–8:00 p.m.

Please join SCARLA on April 16th at 7pm for Post MI-Employment: the First Five Years. We’re excited to welcome three panelists who are recent grads of the RU-MI program, all employed in higher education settings.

Joining us on April 16th are:

  • Michael Murphy, RU MI ’22, Politics, Policy, and Data Librarian at Seton Hall University
  • Chelsea Rizzolo, RU MI ’20, Instructor / Librarian at Brookdale Community College
  • Victoria Sun, RU MI ’23, Business & Research Support Services Librarian at Penn Libraries

Topics to be covered include: How do I parlay my internship into a full-time gig? How do I make the leap from paraprofessional to librarian status? How do I leverage student leadership and publication experiences into marketable assets of my candidacy and CV? What is the best advice for a graduate student preparing to enter the academic library job market?

All will share a bit about their job search and initial months in their current positions, in addition to talking about the specific aspects highlighted above. There will also be time for Q&A from attendees.

This event is co-sponsored by the MI Colloquium, and is an eligible Colloquium event. It will be recorded for those who cannot attend on the 16th. Please use the following link to register:
