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]

Making the best whiteboard "chalk talk" for a faculty interview

Please suggest ways to make the best possible whiteboard "chalk talk" for a biological sciences faculty position interview at a research university in the U.S. The style of the chalk talk can vary widely by institution, and this handout describes some formats and has some suggestions. In practicing, I realize I have trouble writing legibly and remembering not to stand in front of what I've written, so I would especially love specific suggestions to address those issues.

Can you tell if I've tied one on?

Can you tell if someone was drinking the night before you meet them? I have been reading several "get the job" books and many of them instruct not to drink the night before an interview.

Can my job search please be over already?

I will graduate from college in a week. Two weeks ago, I got an email from an institution that I had done a job interview with saying, "We would like to move forward in the process" and asking to do a background check on me. I filled out the paperwork and faxed it back immediately. They still haven't gotten back to me. (I know my background is clean, as I've passed two other background checks recently.) How good should I feel about my prospects here? Was I wrong in assuming that the background check was a prelude to an employment offer?
