  • Design for How People Learn: Bring interactivity to your staff training and educational programming.

All this – and much more – for only $50 per day.

Is This CLiC’s Newest Employee? Nope.

Thanks to our own Katherine Weadley for alerting us to this individual who claims to work at CLiC…

…presumably from our international field office in India?

Although the profile (below) has been reported to LinkedIn as fake (this is NOT our organization’s newest employee), YOU may be interested in our open position as our Regional Consultant for Western Colorado. See our job ad on Library Jobline.
