Check out this paraprofessional conference at the U of M:

Dear Mr. Vann:

My name is Grace Butkowski, and I am the Logistics Coordinator for the Enhancing Quality Staff Symposium (EQS), which is happening this year on May 23, 2017.

The committee has decided to open 20 slots for students from MCTC and St. Kate's to attend the symposium at $30 each. We would appreciate it if you would mention this opportunity to your students.

In addition, we will be sending emails with information about the Symposium as we get closer to the event.

Hi – I’m at the DNR Library and we have just posted a part-time student worker position. Here’s a link to the posting. The listed contact person, Andy Holdsworth, is the hiring manager and my direct supervisor. I’m also available to answer questions about the job.

Can you get this link passed on to any websites or mailing lists where Information Studies/Library IT students will see it?
