The impetus behind INALJ (I Need a Library Job) was creating a jobs resource of all the library and information professional jobs I could find and distributing them to as many people as possible. But beyond that I wanted to inspire hope in job hunters who were struggling and show them that success was possible.
To this end I created the Success Stories (formerly called In Six) section of INALJ.com. These interviews not only give job hunters practical tips, such as which blogs and RSS feeds they should be following and where the success story found their job, they are meant to give hope and be a beacon. We are so lucky to live in a time when physical isolation from each other does not mean we cannot connect. Thank goodness for the internet!
So when I am asked what INALJ is I can answer, INALJ is Inspiring Hope !
