Writing Resumes that Work: A How-to-do-it Manual for Librarians

Front Cover
Neal-Schuman, 1998 - Applications for positions - 144 pages
This manual guides library and information professionals through each step of creating a resume that describes their personal histories (including accounting for periods of unemployment), defines their job objective, connects their skills and experiences with that objective, and helps them reach their goals. Dozens of real resumes from all types of librarians (academic, public, school, special etc) are provided as models for librarians in nearly every specialty. Versions for library school students and for those moving to non-traditional library jobs are also included. A final checklist to make sure everything is in order, an appendix of action verbs, chapters on using computers to create resumes, keeping your resume sharp, and cover letters - plus a foreword by Maureen Sullivan - are further additions to this guide.
