I just saw this blog post written specifically for new librarians, so I thought I would share. I’m graduating in May, so I have done some job searching and this post really resonated with me. The best part, I think, is his tip to “know yourself.” He recommends that you know what you like, don’t like, and what motivates you because that will make your job enjoyable and help you to know what you are good at. I keep having to remind myself of that when I see job ads that I am qualified for, but not anywhere near the direction I want to take. Sometimes my desire for a job makes me forget that.
