INALJ (I Need a Library Job)

INALJ is a great resource that includes a jobs digest, advice, interviews with new librarians who have just made it through the job market, and more.

Also on Facebook.


Cover Letters

Don't underestimate the importance of writing an exemplary cover letter!  This resource provides real-life examples of effective cover letters for librarian and archivist positions.

Open Cover Letters: anonymous cover letters from hired librarians and archivists

"A cover letter is your opportunity to tell your story with much more effect than that of a resume. Think of all the other recent grads competing with you for the same position. You need to stand out, and the cover letter is an opportunity to make your case and get the interview."
