Employers and job seekers can connect in ALA JobLIST Placement Center

The key to effective recruiting lies in knowing where to find your target audience.  If you’re looking for the most qualified library and the information professionals, then the best place to find them is in the ALA JobLIST Placement Center at the ALA 2015 Midwinter Meeting in Chicago, January 30 – February 3, 2015.

We expect nearly 10,000 people to attend the ALA Midwinter Meeting.  Employers can take advantage of this opportunity to talk with a national pool of candidates all in one locale.  Job seekers can network with employers with open positions.

Reserving a recruitment booth in the ALA JobLIST Placement Center is the surest way for employers to meet staffing needs.  Just complete the booth reservation form and email it to bcalvin@ala.org.

The ALA JobLIST Placement Center will also be hosting an Open House/Job Fair in the Placement Center on Sunday, February 1, 2015 from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Representatives from various library and library-related companies will have an opportunity to talk with conference attendees about work environments as well as activities in and around their institutions (i.e. sports, arts, music, community involvement, etc.).

There is no cost to participate in the Open House. Employers interested in participating should complete the Open House Participation form and email it to Beatrice Calvin. For more information, contact Beatrice Calvin.
