Strategies

  • Utilize RSS feeds and email listservs so that job opening notifications come to you, and you spend less time looking for them.
  • Job titles for those with an MLIS have changed, so many of the available positions may have different titles than they did previously.  In job sites like Indeed or Simply Hired, instead of searching for “Librarian,” try searching for one or a combination of the following words: search, searcher, index, taxonomy, content, knowledge, MLIS, MLS, library, information, metadata, semantic, ontology, “content management.”
  • Keep in mind that these terms may bring in many false positives.  For example, the term “Library” often brings up openings for CAD Designers in engineering.  Job titles of Librarian are still prevalent, but they are often more prevalent in public and academic sectors, while utilizing the other terms above will bring in more corporate sector positions.
