After two successful events in London and Manchester, the ARA Section for New Professionals’ annual Summer Seminar training event is coming to the National Records of Scotland, Edinburgh, on Friday 21st June 2013. The day is an informal networking and training event, combining talks from experienced and new record-keeping professionals, a panel-based discussion session and a workshop session.
This year, our featured speakers focus on real-world work situations from two very different perspectives. Established archivist Richard Taylor is speaking on changes taking place at York City Archives and his work on a major HLF-funded project and new professional Chris Fryer will share his experiences of building a digital repository. In our panel session, experienced professionals share their perspectives on essential skills for job candidates for application forms and interview and will answer your questions. We’ll also be holding a workshop on informal networking – a key skill in keeping ahead of a competitive job market.
