Find Your Next Job through SLA’s Career Center
Looking for a library job in the Chicago area? AIM Specialty Health is hiring a knowledge services librarian, and Spencer Stuart, an executive search and consulting firm, is advertising for an information specialist.
Hoping to move up the ladder into a position with more responsibility? The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston is advertising for a new director, as are the City of Riverside (Calif.) Library System and the Cleveland Health Sciences Library at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio.
These and hundreds of other job openings are posted in SLA’s Career Center, a portal that connects information professionals at all stages of their careers to employment opportunities in sectors ranging from health care to law to engineering to public service. The job announcements are continually updated, with new openings posted as they are received.
But the Career Center is more than just a job bank—it also contains resources on topics such as preparing for a job interview, creating a strong résumé, using networking to advance your career, and polishing your social profile. The Career Center also allows employers to search résumés, and it can automatically alert you when new jobs are posted.
SLA members and non-members alike can view job listings and post résumés for free. There is a cost to post job announcements, but SLA members receive a discount. And SLA members who post job announcements can connect with candidates for free, but non-members must pay a fee.
The Career Center complements SLA membership by providing an additional resource for professional advancement. SLA’s community platform, SLA Connect, enables members to share information about job openings in their geographic area or field of work, and many SLA members find new jobs through these announcements or through personal connections with fellow SLA members. The Career Center, meanwhile, serves as a clearinghouse for job openings across all geographic regions and disciplines, so it provides a broader, deeper look at employment opportunities.
