ARL Redesigns MLS Graduate Student Résumé Database

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) has redesigned its MLS Graduate Student Résumé Database, which allows graduate students within six to eight months of completing an MLS program or within six to eight months of completing a post-MLS residency program to post their résumés in one of the most visited online recruitment services in the academic and research library community.

This unique service enables human resources staff at ARL member libraries and other subscribing institutions to target outreach efforts by conducting proactive searches of potential candidates. The site is secure and only ARL member representatives and paid subscribers have access to the confidential database.

The redesigned site allows human resources staff to search by:

Areas of interest
Geographic locations
Foreign language skills
Library schools
In addition to the search capabilities, human resources staff can subscribe to an RSS feed that will notify them when new résumés are added to the database.

Posting résumés to the database is complimentary for all MLS graduate students and post-MLS residents. ARL encourages students and residents to post their résumés today at http://www.arl.org/resources/careers/resumes/.

Human resources staff at ARL member libraries or other interested institutions should contact Jerome Offord Jr., ARL Director of Diversity Initiatives, jerome@arl.org, to obtain access to the database.
