The Leadership and Management Division of SLA welcomes you to "Alternative Careers" provided by Bethan Ruddock.
What do you call a librarian without a library?
Flexible, brave, curious, energetic, and involved!
With all the debate about the lack of traditional library jobs, have you ever wondered what else you can do with your information professional expertise? How do you find a non-traditional role that uses all of your skills? And what new skill-sets would you need to learn?
Bethan Ruddock talks about the career options that an information professional qualification opens up for you, and gives you tips on how to align your thinking and development to working in a non-traditional environment.
Bethan Ruddock is an early-career professional, working as Content Development Officer for Library and Archival Services at Mimas, University of Manchester. She is Awards Chair and Early Career Co-Chair for SLA Europe, and Co-Chair of the LMD Marketing Section. Bethan blogs at bethaninfoprof.wordpress.com, tweets as @bethanar, and is currently editing a New Professional’s Toolkit (lisnewprofs.wordpress.com/), due for publication in 2012.
