ANMIG May Chat: You found the perfect job opening, now how do you get the interview?

Monday, May 12, 2014
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm, US/Eastern

Graduation is here and now it is time to find that perfect job. But, where do you start? Are you flexible with your location? What tactics do you use to stand out from the crowd? This chat will explore some of the ways you can get your foot in the door and land that job interview. Topics to guide our discussion include but are not limited to how you find out about open positions, knowing which libraries are right for you, resume and cover letter, and follow-up questions. While we will focus on academic libraries, many of the topics cross-over to other types of libraries. Please come with your questions and be prepared for a fun and informative chat! Deana Groves, ALCTS New Member Interest Group (ANMIG) Vice Co-Chair and Haley Moreno, ALCTS New Member Interest Group (ANMIG) Member-at-Large, will be your hosts. The chat will be on May 12th from 2:00 – 3:00pm EST and is open to ALA members of all types.
