Hello, Are you the anonymous job hunter they are looking for?

As you know, respondents to the surveys are totally unidentifiable unless they decide to provide an email address.  So I have no idea how to find this job hunter:

When I open my saved bookmarks, Google Chrome asks me if I’m sure I want to open that many

This is unfortunate because another Hiring Librarians contact is on a hiring committee, and asked me if I could forward his listing.  He thinks this person would be a great applicant!

If you are the person responsible for these answers, check out the job at

And of course if you’re not the person interviewed, you are still welcome to apply.  The listing is open.  Here’s a preview:
