So when one is unemployed and actually trying to find a job - one has some free time. Yes, there are many chores that are calling for attention - but there are also the job-search and networking chores.
I was dusting off things on my LinkedIn Profile and happened upon a group called Librarians Seeking Jobs. So I joined and I have seen helpful comments in many of the discussions.
One was from a librarian who mentioned her need to get business cards (okay - networking cards) for the ALA Conference. Well - I'm going to the SLA Conference next week and realized that I needed cards.
But I've waited too long to order them online unless I want to pay $87 for overnight shipping. So I went the old-fashioned route and found a local printer - took the Metro over there and placed the order. Some discussion to keep the cost down - but I'm getting a good, eye-catching card - I think.
Be the first person to get one from me at SLA!
