SLIS Career Counselor Joins Panel to Discuss Job Search Strategies


During a recent webinar hosted by American Libraries, which aired on January 10, 2013, AL Live explored a topic that is weighing on the minds of many future and current librarians. “Landing Your Ideal Library Job” focused on how to navigate a challenging job market.

Host David Connolly, who is the manager of the ALA JobLIST site, was joined by panel members Jill Klees, Career Center Liaison to the School of Library and Information Science at San José State University, and Bohyun Kim, Digital Access Librarian at Florida International University Medical Library.
