Listen to this podcast to level up your librarian job search!

Want to hear lots of free resume and job search tips (mostly focused on librarians/LIS folk but truly applicable to many others)? You're in luck!

For the second time, I was a guest on The Librarian Linkover podcast, hosted by Lorene Kennard, MLIS. I love chatting with Lorene, and it was really fun to do a Q&A with FAQs about all sorts of job search-related topics. 

Listen to the podcast episode to find out:

🔹 What resume writers do

🔹 First step you should take in your job search (it's not what you think)

🔹 Strategies for dealing with job loss or a career switch

🔹 Why choosing one job target is essential

🔹 Whether it's advisable to include volunteer experience or hobbies on your resume

🔹 Whether your resume and LinkedIn profile should be different

🔹 What NOT to include in your application materials

🔹 Tactics for combatting ageism

🔹 Why ATS is not your enemy (despite what 99% of the internet wants you to believe)

🔹 Why you might need to update your resume even if you're not looking for a job

🔹 An exclusive (and wildly good) special code for my new course Get Organized to Get Hired--only for Librarian Linkover listeners!

After you listen, please comment below with your favorite takeaway or something surprising you learned from the episode!
