Say you have signed up for the daily INALJ jobs digest email, and subscribe to many listservs/rss feeds, and scan through Indeed.com, and follow companies on LinkedIn but you are feeling like there is something more you can be doing.
There is. One tool I used in previous job hunts was to find the website for a local magazine (in my case Baltimore and the Washingtonian) and find their “Best Places to Work” issues. If the latest issue was not already online I would look at the past year’s results. Then I would go to the company websites and look for jobs there.
Here is a very brief list of some of the cities I have found but a Google search should reap even more results!
Another idea is to look at the jobs websites for vendors, databases companies that provide libraries services. I used very loose language in my keyword searches such as “research/researcher” or “analyst” as well as “library/librarian”. I interviewed at Thomson a few years back and I found several other interviews that way too.
