Entry Level Librarians Beware

Graduate school is hard enough, but what happens when you graduate and you cannot get a job? Let's hope none of the current graduates I know are dealing with the problems depicted in this article from Library Journal about the lack of positions for entry level librarians. Also discussed is the fact that some positions that do not require experience rarely go to new librarians.

Hmmm...very interesting. As a new "older" librarian (or an "old" newer librarian) I can see some truth to both sides. There are some sweeping generalizations in this article. I may not be as excited as a new puppy, but I'm certainly nowhere near burnout! The job market is challenging in many sectors, why should it be different for librarians?
Glad to see you're blogging again, Ryann!
