Von Drasek, Lisa
School Library Journal, v57 n2 p24-29 Feb 2011
It is enough to make a resourceful media specialist wonder whether she will still have a job at the end of the school year or will need to find a new one. And it is not just experienced media specialists who are anxious. A teacher completing her MLS recently wrote on LM_NET that she was worried about getting a job after graduation. With all the gloom and doom on listservs and blogs, she wanted advice on how to succeed in these tough economic times. In this article, the author offers some helpful strategies that will give one the best chance to land a position in an incredibly competitive field. This paper presents some common sense tips to make resume and cover letter stand out in a crowd, present oneself in the best possible light, and ace the interview.
