Cool jobhunting link from ALAPosted: July 2, 2009 Filed under: Advice: Job Search, ALA, Employment Resources | Tags: ALA, Resumes Comments Off on Cool jobhunting link from ALA
I came across this link on ALA’s Libraries Direct – it’s “ALA’s Toolkit for Getting A Job In a Tough Economy”. It includes tips on resume writing, salary negotiation, networking and other skills that are useful whether jobs are plentiful or scarce; as well as information relevant to the current library job market.
What other resources do you recommend for job hunting in tough times?
