I'm writing an article on making career transitions between specialties and would be interested in 
hearing from anyone with tips or advice to offer.

I've learned from my own experience and conversations with other information professionals that it 
can be difficult to move from one library setting to another (eg. public to corporate, school to 
academic), one library type to another (eg. sci/tech to news, business to medical), and one 
library function to another (eg. reference to technical services). If you have been successful in 
making a transition or have been in a hiring capacity, I'd appreciate any insights you'd like to
