Improvising a career entails flexibility, adaptability, and an ongoing commitment to aligning our current and future skills to emerging market opportunity. But it also demands an ability to build meaningful relationships, regularly push beyond competency zones, learn on demand and at the point of need, and support each other as we navigate a future defined by both unpredictability and opportunity.

Closing session speaker Kim Dority will talk about career improvisation skills by drawing on insights presented at the conference, recent research findings on personal resilience and adaptability, and the ability to anticipate change in this practical, action-oriented wrap-up session. Learn how to consider ways to be on alert for company and/or industry changes, ways to reinvent your professional self to respond to changes in the career market, actions you can take to prepare yourself for emerging opportunities, and how to identify – or create – those opportunities that best align with your career goals and passions.

Based on key points from the forthcoming revised edition of Kim Dority’s Rethinking Information Work: A Career Guide for Librarians and Other Information Professionals (Libraries Unlimited, 2015), this session will provide further engagement and discussion through the use of an accompanying @SLAhq #SLAtalk Twitter chat.
