Imagine: you’re cruising down a gently-sloping, two-lane blacktop. There’s a fall chill in the air. With the car windows down, a refreshing cross breeze carries an earthy scent from the fields. The view here is so clear you can practically see Kansas ahead, and the Rockies tower in your rearview mirror.
This is you: heading off to visit another rural library in your role as CLiC’s NE Regional Consultant. Your task might be to train a handful of library staff on a topic related to public service, or it might be to talk with a third-grade teacher (newly appointed to manage the library 10 hours a week) about strategies for weeding the media center’s outdated collection.
This is you: eating, drinking and breathing library work, but still achieving healthy life-work balance. You’re serving in a teleworking, traveling, interactive role – promoting library cooperation and providing leadership to libraries. You may have specific knowledge and subject expertise. You’re not an expert in all things “library” but you ARE quick to learn, solve problems, and you’re particularly skilled at offering targeted resources and smart referrals.
And this is us: CLiC. We’re seeking a library professional chomping for an opportunity to have his/her work impact many libraries across Colorado. We’re looking for YOU. While your coverage territory would include small and rural libraries throughout the northeast portion of the state, your playground would occasionally extend to other regions.
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: “Envisioning yourself in a role serving other librarians, what special skills would you bring to the conversation?” 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 Human Resources Manager Andrea Pettegrew via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Professional references are not required for initial-stage applicants, but will be required of finalists for the position. Should you have any procedural questions, please address those to the HR Manager via email or call 303-422-1150. Application DEADLINE is 11:37 p.m. Thursday, June 7, 2018.
