The Center for Knowledge Management at Dominican University is holding a KM Open House on October 27th from 8:30 to noon, and I will be speaking with several others on knowledge management and careers in the field.
I have been planning to focus on something not so directly connected to "how to get a job in KM," but rather on my interest in blogs, communities and knowledge management. If there is any career discussion in my talk it may be anecdotal discussions of how one should follow their interests to see where they lead.
Besides myself, the other speakers come out of the library world, which makes sense given that the Center is split between Dominican's Graduate School of Library and Information Science and the Brennan Business School. The other speakers are:
- Christina Stoll, KM advocate at the Metropolitan Library System
- Jan Chindlund, McDonald's
- Karen Miller, KM specialist at the American Library Association
