*GoFundMe option now added! – 12/27/15
Back on October 16, 2010 I thought to myself that I and my fellow Rutgers MLIS students were duplicating efforts in the job hunt and what if we made a daily email list and shared everything we found in one space. So I reached out to see if anyone else wanted to help and only one classmate did, Elizabeth Leondard, who helped set up the Facebook and Twitter accounts I still use today. Um, yep, this 14 million page views and HUGE source for THOUSANDS of jobs happened through an accident of will (if that can happen, feels like it did).
But in order to continue and improve the site and resources I need funding.
Why should you give?
Because YOU use the site
Because it helped YOU or someone you know find their job
Because what WE do has extreme value and is not being done elsewhere
Because INALJ will go away without it
or mail checks, cash, gift cards, money, money, checks (you get it) to:
PO Box 15906
It would be lovely to write a long retrospective but I spend hours each day from dawn until very late in the evening managing volunteers, pages and adding jobs so you don’t have to hunt around for them. This is all I have time to write. I want to continue but whether I do or not depends on YOU, the community of LIS professionals, students and fans.
ORGANIZATIONS & ASSOCIATIONS can Sponsor a page!
INDIVIDUALS can Sponsor a page!
And ANYONE can give using PayPal any amount at all one time or recurring to Jobs@inalj.com
THANKS and I hope to stay doing this but I need the community’s financial support NOW! I know the work we do matters and has value and so does our time.
I don’t have a number – if I raise a little I’ll stay a little longer, if I raise a lot, I will be able to keep going much longer.
