Lunch provided!

This year’s Career Development for Information Professionals lunchtime speaker series kicks off with an appearance by veteran user experience consultant – and iSchool alum – Aaron Louie.

ASIS&T UW, AIMS, and IUGA join forces to host this year-long series, in which experienced industry professionals will discuss their roles in the information profession, how they got to where they are, and what they might do on a day-to-day basis. Look for interesting anecdotes, inspiring advice, and the chance to get some of your burning questions about information careers answered!

Each student group will host three speakers per quarter, and ASIS&T UW tackles the fall leg of the series with pros from the IA/UX field.
