Employers' Expectations of Recent Library School Graduates: A Review of the Recent Literature.
Lockwood, James D.
In order to discover employers' expectations of recent library school graduates' qualifications, a study was made of the literature between 1970 (when the job slump made it an employers' market) and 1975. The accumulation of journal articles, letters to editors, editorials, ERIC documents, monographs, speeches, and dissertations added up to 150 citations, of which included both survey research and articles of opinion, revealed that: (1) there are usually a number of candidates who qualify for each position; (2) since the initial screening is a most important part of the process, a candidate needs to make himself stand out in a positive way; (3) an applicant must be able to move about not only for jobs, but for interviews as well; and (4) contacts and tips about openings are important. A bibliography is attached. (LS)
