Job Hunters Respond!

Hiring Librarians (with some assistance from INALJ) has put together a survey for job hunters “(or those hired within the last two months) in
all LIS careers, at all levels, who are interested in providing their feedback
about the process.”

Take the Survey!

In addition to posting results Emily Weak at Hiring Librarians has gone above and beyond and interviewed respondents more in depth.  She shares all of these at her blog, Hiring Libraians, but I wanted to share a few here on INALJ as well!

For further insight into Hiring Librarians check out my interview with Emily Weak!
