    Great presentation Sandra and Lisa! I learned a lot and really enjoyed your perspective on career strategies. I left with a lot great resources that I was previously unaware of and I felt motivated and inspired to kick my job search up a notch. Thank you for being at Library 2.0. It was a great event!
