This 2 page resume was submitted by a job hunter who says,

I am currently working as a high school librarian in a small boarding school in California but will be looking to move on at the end of the year. Ideally, I would love to work in a public library but I know that I’ll be applying to lots of high school school library jobs as that is what I have the most experience doing and it is something I enjoy doing. I’m drawn to private schools, but I’ve also worked in public education and like it, so both are options for me.

I would like to work either in a public or academic librarian, and would love doing more outreach, as in taking “the library” to hospitals and would like the chance to go over to countries experiencing upheavals, and try to help the librarians there, making sure they and their collections are safe.
