At the end of 2015, a new graduate emerged into a new profession, a new career, a new job and a new role. The professional qualification teaches us well – theories, frameworks, exemplars, stories and practicum opportunities to name a few, but how do you put it into practice and build on these foundational skills to create depth of knowledge.

This is the story of how a very hungry new graduate, who with the primary focus of delivering excellence in customer service, used existing skills and the power of networking to build relationships, establish valuable connections, created opportunities to develop new skills, and put learning into practice, emerging as an early career librarian, a valued Subject/Liaison Librarian and an active member of the library team; remembering always the people who helped make it happen.
