I started volunteering with INeedALibraryJob.com, a website devoted for and run by (mostly) library and information science professionals, about a year ago as an assistant to the Greater New York City page editors.
My volunteer responsibility were checking a number of NYC-oriented job websites for new postings every week. As I was amidst my own job search, I wanted to help others. Earlier this past Summer I moved up as an assistant page editor and landed my own job. I check a greater number of websites every day and I write job hunting-focused blog posts for the website. So far I have written…
- Decoding the Job Posting
- Rethinking Information Work: A Career Guide for Librarians and Other Information Professionals
More to come in the months ahead!
