Before a conference, it’s hard not to ask yourself whether you should be looking for a new position.

by Meg, at N.C. & D Sts. SE

For newer librarians:

  • Is there opportunity for advancement, either in position, or in responsibility, in your current work environment?
  • Do your colleagues encourage growth, share institutional knowledge, offer to collaborate?

For experienced librarians:

  • Have your responsibilities increased at an appropriate rate?
  • Is your work creating a lasting impact on your institution?

For everyone, of all time, ever:

  • Are you happy?

Maybe you’re not ready to seek change, but you should always be ready to accept the possibility of change.
