ALA Webinar: Real Life Strategies for Successful Library Job-Hunting

If you are looking for a job in the library and information science field (like me), you may be interested in the resources presented in this webinar from ALA. I have been searching for an entry-level job since May 2011, with no luck. I have applied for dozens of jobs and had one interview. What can I do to improve my chances? It is very discouraging to be finishing up my MLIS with no prospect of employment and no idea how to make it happen. There is no reason to give up, though. All I can do is try harder and fail better!

Here are some of the slides from the ALA webinar:

Another resource I found useful is the Google Doc from the webinar posted by Hack Library School.

Good luck and happy hunting!
