Library Camp session proposal – #uklibchat LIVE! on careers

I mentioned in the chat last night that we had some ideas for a session at Library Camp on Saturday 13th October. I’ve just added our proposal to the Library Camp wiki:

#uklibchat LIVE! Careers – proposer: the @uklibchat team
Do you have burning questions about job hunting, changing sectors, or career development? Are you in your dream job and want to share your tips? Are you just a bit confused about the whole thing? This was one of the most popular topics covered in #uklibchat this year, and we would like to facilitate a discussion about it, with (hopefully) a simultaneous Twitter chat for those who can’t make it to LibraryCamp. For more information about #uklibchat, please see our blog: uklibchat.wordpress.com

If our proposed session is accepted on the day, we are thinking along the lines of a kind of hybrid offline-online chat, with one (or more) of the team live-tweeting the group discussion, and if the facilities are available we’ll hook up a laptop to a projector so that everyone can see the discussion on Twitter.
We’re looking forward to meeting lots of you at the Camp, and for those of you who can’t make it to Birmingham, do keep an eye on the #uklibchat and #libcampuk12 hashtags on the 13th October, and join in with us if our proposal gets accepted!


EDIT: We have put up an agenda document, please feel free to add any questions or topics that you would like to discuss to the list!
