Library GroupMetaMindThing

I have a Masters in Library Science. I received it a year and a bit back. In that time, I have been applying for a job in the public library sector as a reference librarian. I am not getting anywhere though I am following professional protocol in regards to a sound cover letter and solid resume. I got a 3.6 GPA in the program which is decent but not perfect. Decent, though. I have recently been broadening my search to places outside of my home state of Indiana (and Indianapolis). If you have any recommendations for the best job site areas to review on a regular basis, I am interested. [more inside]

My dire background!

I'm applying for jobs that require a local law enforcement background check, and I suspect that it's turning up information that's [really] detrimental to being hired! What kind of information could they be finding? How could I find out what's on my background check? Finally, is there any way to delicately address these issues in job applications/cover letters without digging myself into a hole? [more inside]

Stuck like an Egyptian

A dear friend of mine desperately wants to improve his life and follow his dreams. I live in a far freer country so I'm unsure of exactly how best to show him support sometimes. I want to tell him not to give up hope and to work hard towards his goals, that it's the only way they'll happen. Sometimes I wonder if maybe I'm just being an overly optimistic American, though. I want to help him in any way I can, but we take for granted the possibilities we have here. Things are far different in his country than in mine and I know that. So I feel a bit useless as support. Insights, please... [more inside]

Alterna-gerl needs an alterna-job!

Can anyone recommend a recruitment or temp agency that specialises in placing 'creative' types in Adelaide or Melbourne, Australia? I currently work in Admin and wouldn't mind doing the same job elsewhere, if only it was with people who were more cosmopolitan and less conservative than my current job. I was thinking something in the publishing or entertainment industries but anything associated with this general area is also OK. Ideally I'd be hoping to use my 'in' in the industry to help me further my own agenda: writing, with a specialisation in writing about music and counterculture.
