Words of wisdom:
"Remember your weekly mix of activity will vary, depending on how soon you need to be employed, how much time you have to spend on your campaign each week, the economy, the relative difficulty of job finding in your targeted field, and the relative effectiveness of each job search method with regards to your job objective. Good Luck!!!" [source: JobSearch-in-Canada.com]

More Jobs For Librarians Than Ever Before: How True?


First, The Canadian News:

  • Library Manager: More Jobs For Librarians Than Ever Before,
    -- “If you want a job right now and you’ve got an undergraduate degree, go to library school and get your masters of library science,” says Jason Bird, manager of library technical services for the Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board in Canada.

Second, The American News:

  • The 30 Best Careers for 2009
    U.S. News's annual list of 30 Best Careers gets updated for a rapidly changing economy. -- They haveranked librarianship as one of the 30 best careers for 2009.
  • More Librarian Jobs Than Ever Before”?…12.31.08
    "I’m skeptical about the following from LibGig titled “Library Manager: More Jobs for Librarians Than Ever Before, but it may be perceived as true at least since library school enrollment appears to be up in general. Of course, it may be only in “the Great White North”"
  • job search, n. see: endless frustration:The false “librarian shortage” has been discussed, at length, in many forums. What surprises me is how little this dichotomy between theory–a vast pool of aging librarians retiring as we speak–and reality–very few jobs open to the new librarian with little experience–is being addressed in practice....
    + a reader's comment: " large part of this problem is that library schools do not make library experience a mandatory part of the curriculum"
  • why there is no librarian jobs

Bottom-line: Is it time to think inside the box or think outside the box. What is your response to this picture, with the background that you may have or by browsing the book displayed, above?

TALK TO PEOPLE LOOKING FOR JOBS. THEY SAY, JOBS ARE DIFFICULT TO GET ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO HAVE LIBRARY EXPERIENCE FROM ASIAN COUNTRIES. PROFESSIONAL JOBS ARE BEING CONVERTED INTO JOBS FOR TECHNICIANS.
