June Roundup

This month has been incredible!

Thirty-nine fans found jobs which is up from twenty-four last June.

In June 2011 the daily INALJ digest was around 76 pages long. Now it often 200+ pages by Friday.

Some fast stats for June 2012:

10,000 Tweets milestone reached
2,071 Twitter followers
4,528 Facebook fans
1,745 LinkedIn group members
3,562 email subscribers
56,466 visits to INALJ.com in June

I love looking back and hope we continue to grow in leaps and bounds. It is hard working finding job opportunities, applying for them and getting hired. I hope INALJ makes at least one aspect of your hunt easier so you can focus on applying and getting the job. Here is hoping July continues the trend. Here is hoping the community we have built can help you focus and grow and most importantly find work that can support you and work you can be passionate about.

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.com. 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.
