What can you do to maximize your odds when they “begin the review”?
Just because a job ad states a specific date doesn’t mean that’s when the application review will begin.

Six tips to help you make the jump to a successful library directorship

"Whatever the motivation, you’ve decided your next job should be as a public library director. Good timing!

"For the first time in years, director positions are opening up with significant regularity. In my county alone, there have been a number of vacancies throughout the past year.

"But there’s an old adage: good librarians don’t necessarily make good directors—in other words, the skills that allow one to succeed in developing children’s services, or managing a reference staff, aren’t always helpful when it comes to running a library. I disagree. Our librarian skills—the ability to listen well, do research, and know a community, for starters—are invaluable."
Maybe you’re convinced you can do a better job.

"One way that librarians can navigate the transition to tenure-track professional positions is to participate in mentoring programs for new academic librarians. This study examines the effectiveness of mentoring programs for novice tenure-track libraries in a variety of library settings and provides examples of successful academic library mentoring programs already in place with the intent that librarians use the data and findings to construct or improve their own library mentoring programs."
