Impress Your Professor: Get a Job... Lazy.

Spring break is almost over. Everyone is reluctantly returning from various tropical locations knowing that there is a pile of school work waiting for them. It's time to get back to work. This weeks "Impress Your Professor" will be short. It's about finding a job once we finish school!

I'm addicted to the Well Dressed Librarian blog. On December 11th he wrote about finding his new job and listed some great tips for librarians looking for work. Letter "O" is great. Network! Network! Network! Joining a site like Linkedin is free and that's how he found his current job. At Catholic, SLIS students are presented with some amazing opportunities to meet and interact with real Librarians. There are various field trips, colloquiums, and guest speakers in classes. Take advantage of these circumstances and network.

First get back to all the school work that you put off during spring break!
