It's a Done Deal - A Post from the Cool Librarian Blog

Well, today I submitted my resume for the Director's position at my library. What have I done?

I cannot wait to see how this turns out! Naturally, there's much drama surrounding this position (and the fact that I have applied), but the bottom line is that, from all accounts, I am as qualified as the next person for this position. But, you know, that does not mean that I will get the job, certainly.

Because I would actually like a decent shot at the job, I will spare you the gory details. But I will say this - six, yes SIX, people (maybe seven) have applied for this job. Six (seven). In a state that doesn't have many full-time library offerings at all. And at least two of those people are from out-of-state. For a job that actually has one of the better salaries that I have seen. Six. Heh.

Wish me luck. Or something.

OOOH, you said "eh" like a true Canadian! I love that!

This may end up being the death of me, because someone else there thinks she had the job all sewn up (and she very well may). She's PISSED that I applied, and she just might push me down a flight of stairs.

Hey Jessica. It's all about timing. Right place, right time, right person. That being said, "Good Luck!" Now on a personal note. Woot! I grew up in Rhode Island (N. Kingstown, Wakefield, Narragansett.) Boy do I miss Lil' Rhodie! I have not been back since 2001. When you have a chance you'll have to get me up to speed on all of the changes in the state. Best!
