Employment Tips - LISWiki

I know how some folks feel about Wikipedia. There are serious questions about accuracy, misinformation and deliberate vandalism. But what if librarians had their own wiki?

John Hubbard has done just that, created a wiki that is librarian specific and information validated. In this post I wanted to call attention to the "How To Prepare for A Library Job Page".

The focus is on librarian employment but library techs can benefit from much of the information presented. The information is listed in 7 steps. Each step clearly explains tips that you can use to snag a library job.

I really liked the In-Person interview section. It addresses the kind of questions librarians and library support people may face in an interview situation. It is worth a visit.
