Help pick the topic for the next post!

What do you want to the VREPS website to do for you? What should be the topic of the next post? Are you interested in more job search hints, or perhaps a list of recommendations for presentations, or something else entirely? What do you want to know more about?

Let me know so I can write something applicable for you! Just post in the comments what would help you and I will do my best to create an informative post on the topic.


Keep up with VREPS: Join the Listserv

As VREPS really gets going and forms a more robust community, we’re going to start sharing news and conversations on the VREPS dedicated listserv. It’s focused toward those of us who are students or are in our first years of the profession, so we can discuss many of the struggles and challenges that might seem irrelevant to more seasoned veterans. Some of the news from the VREPS listserv will also be published here on the VREPS blogthe main listserv, VRA’s Facebook and Twitter, so even if you don’t want to sign up for the listserv you can still get some updates. However, we’d hate for you to miss out on any group news, special opportunities or discussions, so below are instructions for joining. If you don’t have a VRA membership, but you’re still interested in the listserv contact Heather Lowe directly.
