Jobline is presented by SWON Libraries and the Cincinnati Chapter of the Special Libraries Association. As a public service, SWON Libraries accepts new listings for the Jobline at no cost. We’d like to help you find the job or the hire that’s a perfect fit.
Here's how to get started:

Job searching continues to change and evolve. If you're interested in one-on-one LinkedIn counseling contact Melanie@swonlibraries.org. If you'd like a LinkedIn program at your library for staff or customers, we can do that too. If you're interested in more resources using the latest in research and shared by active HR practitioners, Melanie recommends:
CareeRealism - On Careerealism you'll find practical and timely advice for every part of the job search. For example, did you know that you can date yourself by elements you include in your resume (and I'm not referring to graduation dates)? Having a home telephone number, using an aol email account, having an objective statement, these are all things that show their age, and quickly. Two of these tips come from Annette Richmond on a post from July 9, 2015. The changes are not difficult to implement but you have to know about them first.
CareerBliss features job listings, but you can also read reviews about employers and see real salary information shared by registered users. Using the SWON link above, you won't need to register, unless you want to post information yourself. As our economy improves, employers should be aware that treating employees poorly will certainly show up - this is one example of that trend. If you'd like help making your place employee friendly, improving team morale or a review of your current human resources policies, please contact Melanie@swonlibraries.org. Yes, we do that too.
If you like CareerBliss and want to post it on your library website, please contact Luke Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you're looking for some other career options, Learning to Become has some terrific resources for career changers. Truly, as an information professional, there are lots of other choices you may want think about, beyond library walls. Their Changing Careers After 50 Guide covers stats and resource links that anyone can use to expand their career options.
SWON Libraries reserves the right to remove any job posting for any reason at any time.
