What’s the Skill Share Fair?
The Skill Share Fair is a mini-conference designed to introduce Pratt SILS students to local leaders in a range of information professions. The goal is to give us inside looks at a range of information professions, and offer career/job search-related ideas to help us as we move forward.
Friday, April 15, 2011 4pm – 6pm
