So it came to pass that I finally found some time to reflect on INALJ in 2012. I was riding the train either to or from ACRL/NY’s Symposium where I was to speak on branding. Each day I would forward and reply to over 100 emails. I spent more than an hour on the INALJ Daily Jobs Digest even with the help of countless volunteers and two fab Associate Editors (Katherine and Scottie). So how could I do anything big or new with so little time?
Then it hit me. Leave much of the manual work behind. Old habits are comfortable and for me die hard. Sending out the daily digest in six separate emails allowed me to connect with many fans. It is the avenue that many successful job hunting fans used to tell me they had found a job. So by automating the daily jobs emails I knew I might lose these connections. But the savings of thousands of hours of my time a year is vital at this stage.
So if you want daily reminders about INALJ sign up at INALJ.com (right hand side) for the alerts. And don’t forget to email me when you are successful in your job hunt so I can continue to share and celebrate your success!
