This topic is very interesting and helpful.  I am part of the google group and it is a great resource.  Looking forward to hearing this presentation.

Thanks, Jaime!  I hope that you're getting excited about the number of jobs that are out there for you.  Feel free to send me a resume if you want a review or any assistance. 


I know the average annual salary of a federal librarian in 2009 was over $84,000, but I didn't want to put that into the session description.  Who knows if the average salary will drop anytime soon.  Many people are retiring, and the new ones are coming in at lower grades.

Thanks I will send you a private message.
