Today I spent some time reaching out to a contact from the Ohio Department of Administrative Services, Ray Justice. Ray is a friendly and knowledgeable colleague who works in the Talent Management section of the DAS Human Resources Division. He's pictured above in the grey suit. The photo is from a Talent Development Community meeting we both attended this morning.
I reached out to him to learn what data reporting options exist. For instance, if I'm an xyz employee, but I want to be an ABC employee, how many ABC positions exist within the state? How many of them exist at my agency? I figured this kind of data might be helpful to include in these resource guides.
I also got to speak briefly with Evan Struble, Library Consultant. Evan and his counterpart Mandy are in their third year of overseeing and coordinating a grant funded program called Guiding Ohio Online. Guiding Ohio Online places Americorps volunteers into rural libraries to train patrons on basic computer and internet use. Evan asked me to present on a topic at their next G.O.O. orientation, and I agreed with gusto.
I also spent some time browsing the Gale Courses catalog to see what sorts of courses I might be able to include in these resources guides. There are plenty to choose from! At Nicole's suggestion, I enrolled in a course so I could understand the process of taking a Gale Course.
