Importance of building a network
Job hunting can be more than finding jobs to apply for. Building a professional network can help you get your foot in the door. If possible, attend events (SNGG and NewCardigan run plenty that allow you to network in a relaxed and casual environment) and begin to develop a professional community. That way, you might hear about jobs before they’re even advertised.
Once you find a job you want to apply for, get some advice on your resume with our Resume Review Service, which is available for ALIA members. Just send your resume, ALIA Member Number, and some information about the job you are applying for to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send your resume to an industry professional to review and provide you with feedback. You can also visit our Job Help Site to get more tips on your resume, responding to selection criteria, and interviews.
Finding jobs can be challenging but by using some of the above resources hopefully you stay on top of all the options available to you and snap up that job!
