Professional Development Co-Chair
The Professional Development Committee requires one second year student as well as one first year student to act as co-chairs. The Committee also welcomes members at large for ideas and input. The PD Committee is responsible for a number of professional development events for students at the Faculty of Information throughout the school year, including various resume and job-interview clinics, speaker events, and career-oriented workshops. The Professional Development Committee’s largest events are the annual Employer Showcase (formerly the Job and Networking Event), usually held in January, as well as the iSchool Clubs & Associations Fair, held in September. Each Co-Chair is allotted one vote at MISC meetings.
