The iSchool employs student assistants to work in a variety of jobs while they take classes, study and earn their degrees. Last week, we talked to a few iSchool students who are getting ready to graduate and asked them about their jobs and the skills they learned as student assistants.
I live in Northern California, close enough to SJSU that I could feasibly make the drive down to campus to attend classes in person. But many students at the School of Information log in from across the United States, Canada and all over the world.
SJSU iSchool Director Dr. Sandra Hirsh has been travelling around California for the last couple of months, visiting libraries and holding informational sessions to answer questions and discuss the programs and opportunities available at the iSchool. Hirsh visited two public libraries in Los Angeles in January and the Sacramento Public Library in early February.
