What experience would be helpful for Digital Asset Management in a corporate company? (Knowledge Manager, Corporate Librarian)

Hello. I'm a undergraduate sophomore, seeking advice from MLIS holders and Library Professionals. I'm interested in DAM, being a Knowledge Manager. It's not a path talked about and I want guidance of what to do to move into the career. Knowledge Management appeals to me, as someone that likes self-directed "librarian" type work, but does not want to get a master's to become a librarian (university, public) role. My degree is focused in digital media. I currently have 2 internships, and 2 years left. I want to steer my career path in the new direction: Knowledge Management / Digital Asset Management for corporate. I mostly want to know, if someone could answer all questions in the same reply: • What domains should an undergraduate look into for a corporate career: Project Management, Data Analysis, Business Analyst pathway, - OR - all of the above? • What types of internships should a undergraduate student look for to develop business administration skills for the DAM / Knowledge path? • If a student is aiming for corporate - not - standard librarianship, is it worth it to get a MLIS - Master of Library and Information Science? • What is the best way to learn cataloging, metadata, or taxonomy in undergrad? - I have two years left, and interested in any certifications, YouTube videos, or resources available for these topics.

What classes do you have to take in a library science masters program? And what does the daily life of a librarian look like?

I'm currently in my senior year of high school, so I know I have a while before I'll get to graduate school, but I want to be prepared! I want to be a public librarian, specifically a children's librarian if possible.

How do I find a job as a school librarian?

I'm a resident of Syria and have already completed my bachelor's in library and information. I also have 6 years of experience working in libraries. Finding a job has been incredibly difficult because of the constant conflict/war in my country.

Questions Regarding A Librarianship Career

How much does a Librarian earn right out of college? What majors are required to become one, and what non-essential majors would give me an advantage in the field? What types of Librarians receive the highest wages? Also, is it possible to become hired as a Librarian without going to college? Should I consider an internship at a library, as well? What would be the best way to become a Librarian in a new country outside of the United States of America (Tanzania, East Africa)? As of writing these questions, I have experience in Retail (as a Sales Associate and Section Manager): what would be the best way to translate the skills from that field and those positions in relation to Librarianship on a resume?

Why do you need a Master's degree to be a Librarian?

In my research, I saw you need to have a Master’s degree to a Librarian but I don’t know. I also read you don't need one to be a School librarian yet to have at least the requirement of state teaching and it makes me very confused. #librarian #research

How do hiring managers in libraries view online Master's of Library Science degrees (MLS, MLIS, etc.)?

I want to become a librarian, but the only way I could get my MLS (Masters of Library Science) degree is to go to school online. I want to know if libraries, especially public libraries, look down on this type of degree or if it is considered appropriate in the field, and how likely it is that I could get a job with an online MLS. #librarian #library-manager #public-library
