Didja see that there’s a new survey?
This week we launched a State of the Job Market survey. It asks people who hire librarians, and other LIS workers, to tell us things like the number of people who applied to their last job opening, why candidates are eliminated at the application stage, and if the number of full time librarian positions has increased or decreased over the last decade.
We’ve had about 140 respondents. I’m hoping to get a few more before posting the initial statistics. If you hire LIS workers, please take the survey: http://tinyurl.com/hiringlibjobmarketsurvey If you know someone who hires LIS workers, please pass on the link.
In the meantime, here is a little peek at the responses to a question that asks hiring librarians to finish a sentence.
