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