Tips for Job Seekers

1. Start a blog! If even if you aren't yet working as a librarian, you can differentiate yourself from the crowd by starting a professional blog. 2. Create a job portfolio. Include a statement of professional goals, objectives and values. Having something that will remind you what you think is important will do at least three things: 1) It will help you assess whether an institution is the right fit for you, 2) It will give an institution an idea of what motivates you personally, 3) It shows you know how to make a long-term plan which is a life skill that translates quite well to the professional world.
