After the whirlwind of activities and projects in the face of finishing graduate school, many emerging professionals are left wondering, what next? Those with established careers who are looking to either expand their services, stay on top of changes in technology, or switch positions may also be asking the same question. This workshop, hosted by Visual Resources Emerging Professionals and Students (VREPS), seeks to provide anyone looking to expand their skillsets with the resources and confidence they need to continue to grow as a professional in the fields of art libraries and visual resources. With a format consisting of presentations, live demonstrations, open discussions, and brainstorming sessions, the workshop will encourage all participants to take the next steps to building their careers, which in turn will add to the richness of our professions.

Subjects to be covered include:

- Networking

- Finding internship / volunteer / job opportunities

- Continuing education / staying on top of current technologies

- Considerations towards another degree or certificate

- Strategies for professional development

- Writing better applications

- Getting involved with professional organizations
