Campaigning for a Library Job

I'm co-presenting tomorrow at Library 2.012 from 4:00pm to 5:00pm PST with Amanda Bjorling from Deer Creek Mackinaw School District on campaigning for a library job. Our session is titled "Campaigning for a Library Job: Maximizing Professional Development Opportunities to Differentiate Yourself From Other Applicants" and we'll be talking a lot about using professional development to get your name out there and to differentiate you from other applicants.

One of my classmates from my MLIS posted a link on Facebook recently to an article from Forbes on the best and worst graduate degrees for jobs currently. And unfortunately (however not surprisingly), the MLIS was right at the top.
