Job Search Links for Library Technician/Associates

It is almost graduation time so it is never too early to take a closer look at the employment resources that were provided at the Job Search and Mock Interview session. If you didn't get the opportunity to attend here are some of those resources.

Special Libraries Association is a mix of Library and Library worker position throughout the United States. You can view a list of job opportunities but you must register in order to view the details. You don't have to be a member but there is a student membership that would allow you access to a variety of benefits.

EdJoin.org give you an easy way to look for employment opportunity with the various school districts in California. On the date of this post I found 32 current library positions with many of them requesting library technician skills. Definitely a resource to keep an eye on.

Along the same line is the California School Library Association Job Hotline where you can view listing for California library work or nationwide. On the day that I visited these were librarian specific listings.

Check these listing out on a regular basis even if you are not currently looking for employment. It will give you a good sense of what the market is looking for, what the current wages are for certain types of work and it will give you clues on how to prepare your resume.
