One of the podcasts I listen to (Buzz Out Loud) started a drinking game that centers around the phrase “In these tough economic times.” Whenever a podcast host uses that phrase, the other hosts yell out “drink.”
While the game is in response to the many press releases and news stories about the faltering economy, it is also a reminder that there are lots of people in the country that are looking for jobs. (That’s a fact that isn’t always so humorous.) Certainly it’s not just those in the technology industry on the job hunt. Librarians are in the job market too.
In order to help those serving teens locate jobs, YALSA put together a new wiki page as a way to provide information and resources on finding jobs and as a place to advertise positions in the field. If you know of a job, you can post information about it on the wiki. If you know of someone else that has a job opening, let that person know about the wiki and how to post information there.’ And, if you know about a good resource for locating teen librarian jobs add it to the list that’s already started on the wiki.
Speaking of posting information on the YALSA wiki, registration is required in order to post.’ Registration helps YALSA to keep out spammers. The registration process is quick and simple so don’t let that deter you, or someone you know, from adding job information. The listing on the YALSA wiki could be just what a fellow teen librarian is looking for in order to get that all important job.
