♦ Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays ♦

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all of you! Whether you are looking for a job, or active on my LinkedIn Group, Facebook page, Twitter feed, or just get the daily email I am thankful to have you along for this journey. Here is to a wonderful new year and jobs for everyone in 2012! I know when we started this in October 2010 we never thought we’d be able to reach so many people. I can’t tell you how much I have loved connecting with all of you in this virtual space and I look forward to growing this even more. From our home to yours 🙂 Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! Naomi & Sana

Naomi House, MLIS, is the founder and publisher of the popular LIS jobs resource INALJ.com (formerly I Need a Library Job). 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. Naomi believes that well-sourced quantity is quality in this narrow job market and INALJ reflects this many new jobs published daily. She was a 2013 Library Journal Mover & Shaker and has served on the University of Maryland iSchool Board from 2014-2017. Naomi was a Reference, Marketing and Acquisitions Librarian for a contractor at a federal library outside Washington, DC, and now lives part time in Western NY and Budapest, Hungary. She has heard of spare time but hasn’t encountered it lately. She pronounces INALJ as eye-na-elle-jay.
