Navigating the field: Finding that first academic librarian position in Canada 

Are you new to Canada and seeking a position in an academic library? Are you a recent graduate from a Faculty of Information/iSchool, looking for your first professional position? Would you like to learn strategies to prepare your cover letter and CV? Do you need help navigating the interview process? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may be interested in attending this workshop series, which is a partnership between the Visible Minority Librarians of Canada Network (ViMLoC) and the University of Toronto Libraries. Each workshop will be an informative session, filled with tips, advice, additional resources, and with lots of opportunity to ask questions throughout. We hope to see you there!
