per “Hiring Librarians“:
I see far too many resumes for students who are specializing in archives and digital preservation when most libraries need instruction librarians.
I’ve discussed before how, during library school, I looked at what jobs were actually on the ALA job list, and tried to hone my skills (via field experiences, work experience, etc.) so that I met the qualifications of jobs that actually interested me.
We must do a better job of educating library school students about these matters!
