Alumni Reflections: Career

“I am certain I got my current position because of my experience in the Fellowship. I feel much more prepared for the instruction and research aspects of my faculty position because of the work I did in the Fellowship. I also feel much more keyed into the profession thanks to our discussions about conferences and ways to get involved in professional organizations, and that has also made me feel less like an impostor in my first real library job.” - 2016 Fellow

“Teaching is such an important part of academic librarianship. It has has been a required or preferred component of every job I applied for this year, and I think that being able to list my experience on my resume made me a more competitive applicant. “ - 2016 Fellow

“The Research and Teaching fellowship is the best preparation for applying to jobs that I could have asked for. It has made me competitive for library positions I wouldn't have been qualified for otherwise.” - 2017 Fellow
