Abstract

Those of us who graduated from college and graduate school during and after the recession faced a library job market that was wildly unbalanced in terms of supply and demand, and consequently had to find creative ways to find employment. This column offers the author’s experience as one possible example for how new library school graduates can engage a variety of opportunities on their way to full-time employment.
