Job search article from this month's American Libraries magazine, featuring advice from yours truly!
 
“'Don’t just give job descriptions: Document your contributions and prove your value.'” Highlight specific projects, activities, and results. Also, make certain you spotlight transferable skills such as customer service, project management, or supervision."

Event Internet pricing is really putting associations in a bind. On one side we have members/attendees pushing for more and more on-site connectivity, as well as those who can't make it wanting more virtual options to actively participate in meetings and watch speakers/programs in realtime. OF COURSE they don't think it should be very difficult or expensive to add wi-fi, after all it's offered for free all over the place, right? But on the other side, we have this:
You’re paying too much for your event’s Internet connectivity: Here’s what’s behind the deceptive pricing.

This one's for +Jenny Levine, as she kicks and screams.
 
UNDERSTANDING GOOGLE+ v2.0

Ok, so this is the second version of Understanding Google+ and it should be very useful for all the newbies. I would've also added: "Want to see influencers and statistics? -> View Ripples", but there's no more space for that.

Feel free to share it to help everyone and give me some feedback on the original post:

Thanks to my wonderful friends Gary & Maureen and +Stephen Pearlman & +Mark Towns for their donations to support this worthy cause!

Before you get your fun on this holiday weekend, why don't you make a small (or large, I'm not picky!) charitable donation first? Your heart will thank you for it!

If I might toot my horn for a moment...

Today we had the service anniversary awards at MPOW. It's always nice to see how your co-workers describe you (at least in public!). Thanks for the kind words, guys!

States that tend to vote more conservatively also have a higher tendency to collect more in federal spending than they pay in federal taxes. Interesting, that.

Amen!
 
Spread the word! It's educating your communities and your school and local officials about exactly this that leads to library funding and job stability and growth. You get to do the good work you yearn to do, and your community is all the richer for it!

"...Libraries are not frills. They are not luxuries, but a sacred component of American education and American democracy."
