On behalf of the CALL/ACBD New Professionals SIG, we would like to invite VALL members to participate in our Early Career Advice Survey. Our goal is to gather anecdotes, suggestions, and words of wisdom from the community for student and new CALL/ACBD members. The survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete and responses remain anonymous. The theme for this year's survey is "the first 5 years", which includes questions such as the do's and don'ts of the interviewing process and helpful networking tips.
We look forward to hearing from you! Thank you for sharing your time and experience. Results from the survey will be posted to the CALL/ACBD SIG webpage by May 2017.
