Career Center

Exhibits Hall, Career Center

Once again, we’re working on building a helpful and resourceful spot for job seekers, recruiting libraries, and advisors to connect at PLA Conference. The Career Center, at the end of the 1000 aisle in the Exhibits Hall, will have coordinated events at select times (see below), but will remain open during conference hours to enable job posting or impromptu interviews.

Admission to the Career Fair and Crash Courses is included with Full Conference registrations and Exhibits-Plus badges. Single-Day registrants can attend on the day for which they’ve registered. Résumé Review, Interview Coaching, and Speed Mentoring are free, but separate registration is required and space is limited.*
