From backyard projects to beefing up your resume, we’re going to talk about the less conventional benefits of your future degree. I hope this blog post gives you the confidence to transfer the skills you develop in school to your next job application or venture into uncharted territory. At the very least, this article should make you proud of your personal development every day you work towards your MLIS or MARA degree.
I’d like you to consider how being an expert in research and data can apply to anything you do. In recent years, I’ve transitioned to a primarily DIY lifestyle.

If I can do it myself, I’ll most likely save money and gain valuable knowledge and experience at the same time.
