Half-way between calm analysis and outright panic mode

I'll be graduating with my Master of Library Science in the spring of 2012. My focus has been with diverse populations and technology training. I want to work in a public library when I graduate, but I'm a little daunted by the public sector job market (and just the general job market). What should I be doing to increase my chances for employment as much as possible, and what can I do to make possible unemployed job searching as painless as possible. [more inside]

How can I use my MLIS and my language skills?

What are potential career options for an MLIS graduate interested in using language and translation skills on the job as well? I am a 21-year-old undergraduate student who will be graduating one quarter early in March 2011. This summer I'm applying to the UW's iSchool MLIS program and hope to start Autumn Quarter 2011. I am very interested in traditional library work, but in the last couple years I have worked hard to learn Spanish. I'm currently training to be a Spanish-English translator and interpreter as well, as this will help pay for my MLIS degree. I would really love a career that could incorporate my growing interests in linguistics and translation, as well as my interests in the research and service-oriented aspects of librarianship. Any suggestions? I know the State Department has some positions that would incorporate all these skills, and I'm looking for other options, too.
