Come to the Liverpool Public Library for a special workshop about developing your professional narrative as a librarian!
Librarians can use storytelling techniques to develop a professional narrative that can be used in the application, interviewing, marketing, and professional development processes. Once we know our own story and why we do what we do, we are better prepared to create a road map to further develop our careers and, perhaps, the profession as a whole.
In this workshop, participants will:
- learn the basic elements of a good story and how it applies to their professional lives.
- create their own professional stories.
- try out their new stories in mock applications and interviews.
