Must follow: ALA JobList on Facebook

reposted from 1/23/12

I love lists and I have made many of my own but sometimes I find I can miss something great buried in the middle of a list so I wanted to spotlight ALA Joblist on Facebook and explain why I love it so.

The folks over at ALA Joblist don’t just post tons of great jobs every day at their website they also post tons of great articles and notices about upcoming events and webinars that are specifically geared towards librarians and info pros! I try and share the occasional article they have posted here at I Need a Library Job on Facebook but really you should “like” them so you don’t miss a posting.

Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular LIS jobs resource (formerly I Need a Library Job). Founded in October 2010 with the assistance of her fellow Rutgers classmate, Elizabeth Leonard, INALJ’s social media presence has grown to include Facebook (retired in 2016), Twitter and a LinkedIn group, in addition to the interviews, articles and jobs found on INALJ has had over 20 Million page views and helped thousands of librarians and LIS folk find employment! Through grassroots marketing, word of mouth and a real focus on exploring unconventional resources for job leads, INALJ grew from a subscription base of 20 friends to a website with over 500,000 visits in a month. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this many new jobs published daily. She was a 2013 Library Journal Mover & Shaker and has served on the University of Maryland iSchool Board from 2014-2017. Naomi was a Reference, Marketing and Acquisitions Librarian for a contractor at a federal library outside Washington, DC, and now lives part time in Western NY and Budapest, Hungary. She has heard of spare time but hasn’t encountered it lately. She pronounces INALJ as eye-na-elle-jay.
