Therefore, I will endeavor to test the power of the blog.
I hereby make my intentions known to my readers: I am looking for employment. Yes, a full time library/archives/information center job. Sounds nuts, this approach. But, why not.
Here are my 3 main assets (a more detailed list can be read on my resume):
- I have a professional master's degree (MLIS)
- IT skills, with a focus on web design
- 5 years work experience in a large university library and archive
I covered several important and emerging areas during my tenure such digital asset management, records management and digital content policies (please see my resume).
I increased the visibility of my department by creating an aesthetically-pleasing, engaging, and comprehensive web presence (please visit the website I designed and managed at McGill to gain a clearer picture).
In each case, I brought to my role and my areas of responsibility dedication and, in all honesty, I real sense of innovation, of thinking differently in the face of old problems and new challenges (please see my resume).
Bottom line is: I'm looking for an opportunity to contribute meaningfully and learn.
So is everyone else, right? Well, that's why I'm testing the power of the blog. I don't know how many readers I have. Maybe I only have one constant reader. According to my little ClustrMap widget down on the left column, I have visitors--potentially readers--from North America and across the globe. Maybe someone knows someone who knows someone who is, say, working in a college or university, and is looking to hire a qualified person with the skills I have.
This is an experiment. So let's give it a go.
Thanks for reading!
