Chat With Us This Wednesday, November 25th

Please join SAA’s Students and New Archives Professionals Roundtable for the next #snaprt Twitter chat in this month’s series on finding your first professional job. The focus of the upcoming chat on Wednesday, November 25, at 8 PM ET will be managing job offers and adjusting to your first professional role. Our most recent chat about in-person job interviews included lots of great advice from chat participants (many thanks!) Please visit the chat transcript on Storify to learn more:

LIS students, recent graduates, and new and experienced archivists are all encouraged to join the chat on Wednesday, November 25, at 8 PM ET.  We will discuss topics such as:

  • What kinds of positions without “archivist” in the job title can benefit from the types of skills archives-focused LIS graduates have?
  • What are some tips for negotiating the salary, benefits, or other aspects of a job? Why might someone turn down an offer?
  • In what ways might you call upon your connections, training, or other resources to support yourself in transitioning to a new role?
  • What kinds of lessons have you learned as a new professional? Have any surprised you?
  • What do you consider to be the characteristics of a professional? And how can you grow as a professional particularly in your early years?

We welcome everyone to join or keep up with our chat using the #snaprt hashtag on Twitter. If you would like to have your question or discussion topic included in this chat, please send it to @SNAP_Roundtable on Twitter, submit it through the anonymous form on the SNAP RT chat webpage or email it to Please see the SNAP RT chat webpage for more information about #snaprt Twitter chats.
