So, maybe you’ve worked in libraries for a few years, and you’re looking for that next challenge. Or maybe you’ve just received that newly-minted MLS diploma and tacked it to the refrigerator, but employment prospects haven’t quite fit or grabbed your attention in that dreamed-after, soul-fulfilling way you hoped…
We might just have the perfect job for you.
Here are some highlights: you would use a variety of technologies, specifically related to an integrated library system and related systems, to support and IMPACT small libraries across Colorado. You would work actively and collaboratively with many of the most passionate, service-oriented library folks you could ever hope to meet, literally sprinkled across this state. Your days would never become routine!
Imagine diverse tasks including (but not limited to):
We’re seeking early-career library evangelists with a yearning for learning and a complete lack of fear about the unfamiliar. This is an entry-level position, perfect for a person who has NOT channeled their career goals to follow some pre-determined path paved with traditional hoop-jumping. Our organization provides a humane and supportive work environment, rich in experiential opportunities for Listeners and Doers and Thinkers and Connectors (preferably a combination).
If you’re a library professional and chomping for an opportunity to see your work impact libraries across Colorado, then consider working at CLiC. Here, the state is your playground. This position operates from our office in Centennial, but involves some travel.
Masters of Library and Information Science from an ALA or NCATE accredited institution – or – Bachelor’s degree plus four or more years of progressive working experience in one or more types of libraries.
Please submit a non-form cover letter and a professional resume. If your letter begins with “Dear Hiring Manager,” then you’re already off to a bad start. Please include within your letter an answer to this question: “What is it about library work that fuels your spirit?” Also, tell us about yourself as it relates to this job opportunity. Not all of the places you’ve worked (hello, that’s in your resume…), and not the trite “I’m a hard-working, dependable, enthusiastic, and experienced person who will make a positive contribution to your organization.” If you’re indeed such a person, believe us, we’ll ferret that out.
Apply by sending your material to HR Manager Andrea Pettegrew via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
