I ACTUALLY HAVE AN INTERVIEW WITH HALIFAX PUBLIC LIBRARIES NEXT WEDNESDAY.

A REAL LIVE INTERVIEW. FOR A UNIONIZED POSITION.* AS A LIBRARIAN, NOT A SAD INTERN.**

SHRIEK.***

* Alright, so it's a unionized floater position that would only give me twenty hours a month. I'd still be in the union and therefore eligible to apply for a lot more jobs (and I would actually be considered for those jobs and not have my resume thrown immediately onto the Fuck It Pile).

** Note: I am not ACTUALLY sad about my internship. Though I am a little sad about the pay.

*** This may not sound that exciting, but I swear HPL is harder to get into than the damn Mafia. I've seriously applied for almost every position they've advertised for the past two and a half years and this is the first time I have gotten a callback.

I have only a secondhand knowledge of the librarian hiring process, but I know enough that I went "OH GOODNESS" when I saw this post. OH GOODNESS! Public libraries are incredibly difficult to get into here in Philadelphia, and union jobs are so rare. That's fantastic, congratulations!

Thank you! Public library systems tend to be really difficult to break into, for reasons that make sense but are INCREDIBLY frustrating for those of us who are just starting out, so I'm pretty excited. :D
