On November 9, 2016, the SJSU School of Information offered a career webinar presentation by Sally Gore. During the presentation, entitled “Supply and Demand: Matching Your Skills to the Information Needs of Today”, Gore gave tips on how to inventory your skills and think about what exactly makes you qualified for a job as a librarian or information professional. Gore is a research evaluation analyst with the University of Massachusetts and has been in several different career fields, so she was well equipped to inventory job credentials.
Gore started off by asking attendees what their dream was for libraries. She encouraged everyone to think about what their dream was for librarians and what they are looking to do in the profession. “Remember what drew you to the profession in the first place,” she reminded people.
