Job Hunting Resources for Librarians and Information Scientists.
Job hunting. We all hate it, but everyone has to do it at least once! The resources listed below are targeted for (but not restricted to) people in the library and information science fields. I actually made this page for my own use many years back. I’ve since found out that other people found it and have occasionally used it. So, I have continued to maintain it.
Trade publications and professional organizations
- Academe this week (the Chronicle of Higher Education)
- ARL job, residency and internship listings
- ALA JobLIST
Placement services and resource lists
Some of these are more useful than others. Let the searcher beware.
- Linked In (professional networking site)
- Indeed, listings and referrals
- Career one stop
- Academic Employment Network
- Career Resource Center
- College Grad Job Hunter© – Entry Level Jobs for College Students and Recent Graduates
- Top 100 Electronic Recruiters
- USAjobs.gov – Current Job Openings in the US government
- EntryLevelJobs.net – Find entry-level jobs near you.
Other useful resources:
- LiveCareer resource list
- The Riley Guide
- JobHunt: On-Line Job Meta-List
- Networked Librarian Job Search Guides
This list always needs updating, and I’m sure there are some gems out there that I don’t know about. If you know of a job hunting resource that should be on this list, then please send an email to my address:
…and I will look into it. Thanks!
