    The Archives and Records Association, Ireland (ARA,I) is pleased to announce a full day training event for current archival students and new professionals at the John Paul II Library, Maynooth University on Thursday, 22nd June 2017.

    In addition to sessions on interview skills, how to prepare a CV, applying for tenders and setting up as self-employed, the day will include presentations from three established professionals currently working in records management, digital archives and academic archives, outlining their experiences and advising on how best to begin a career in their chosen areas. The Chair of the ARA's Section for New Professionals will also discuss their work and initiatives for recently qualified archivists and records managers.

    We also invite four attendees to participate in informal lightning talks - short talks of less than 10 minutes discussing their experiences (good and bad!) as newcomers to the archival profession. Maybe you would like to discuss how you ended up in archives, what you have discovered about the archival job hunt or what skills have been the most useful in your first jobs. Please indicate on registration if you are interested and we will be in touch!
