Sharing My (Jobs) Sources
I go to many websites to locate open positions to share with Tennessee job hunters. I would like to share a few of my favorite local and national resources here for you. Each is also linked on the INALJ-TN page.
1. ATLA American Theological Library Association job postings-Nationwide
2. MLA Medical Library Association job postings-Nationwide
3. SAA Society of American Archivists job postings-Nationwide
4. National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS)– Nationwide
5. Indeed.com: http://www.indeed.com-
I search by selecting TN as the state with these (and more!) keywords: “metadata”, “library”, and “librarian”
6. The Tennessee Board of Regents-Statewide
7. JOBS4TN Online-Statewide
I additionally search for jobs by region. Tennessee has three regions: West, Middle, and East. On my page, I have links to academic libraries and other libraries listed by the state region. I also note if the only positions listed on the links are volunteer opportunities. I include those as volunteering helped me gain experience in the field, and it was really enjoyable as well! There are opportunities I have listed throughout the state, and I tried to be as comprehensive as possible on my state page.
I hope these resources listed here and on my state INALJ-TN page help others discover the job of their dreams!
