Great source of people who understand systems and information

Spent most of this past Friday at the Faculty of Information Studies at a Student Council sponsored resume clinic. About a dozen professionals from various fields reviewed resumes from soon to be graduating Master’s students.

Many enter the program from backgrounds that are quite a departure from the library and information studies students of the past. Sometimes they struggle to put forward their unique values to a future employer. What they share is an encompassing understanding of policy, organizations, people, processes and technology used in organizing knowledge and the records necessary for high functioning departments and teams.

I met students with rich work experience in production planning, logistics, advertising, programming, and others. Theories, cases and skills acquired during their current studies will add valuable perspectives. Employers looking for people who can help make sense of complex systems would do well to engage these grads
