How do I best reapply to a job I really want ?

Last October, I applied for a library job that I really want. In December, they sent me a nice letter saying they weren't hiring anyone right then, but might relist it in 2008, and if they did, please reapply. (There are some comments that suggest they liked my application quite a bit, but that might just have been a pleasant form letter.) They've now relisted the job: how do I put my best foot forward on the reapplication? [more inside]

Applying for a job when you are on the board

My partner is currently applying for a director position with a non-profit that she is currently on the board of. Obviously, she has a lot of 'insider information' about the direction of the organization. How should she handle this in the interviews? Do search committees handle interviews for someone in her position differently then someone less familar with the org? Any tips would be appreciated.

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]
