I was happy to find a posting on finding outside the box or stealth library jobs. ALAJobList originally shared the link and I re-shared it :)
Written by Holly the Librarian, Stealth Library Jobs, covers a very important topic, jobs that are perfect for librarians posted employers who don’t know they need us (librarians) for that role. Check out the whole thing.
One of my goals at INALJ is to make my list of Keywords for Job Searching (found on the right sidebar) even more robust. Heck, I may even find time to alphebatize it this year too :) There are many employers out there that think they know what a librarian does (books, shushing) and it is really difficult to teach someone when they think they know already. By going out there and applying for these jobs and working in these varied fields we are doing the best teaching possible- through exposure to librarians in the workplace more and more employers will begin to share our value with their colleagues.
Libraries and information centers, why they are just the beginning.
