ALA Presents Open Door to Improving Libraries Career Services' Resources

A couple Glassdoor team members are attending The American Library Association (ALA) annual conference in Chicago, Illinois. The ALA, the oldest and largest library association in the world, promotes and develops library and information services via a broad-based program of legislative advocacy, professional education, publishing, awards and public awareness.

Each summer the ALA hosts its Annual Conference which is attended by more than 25,000 librarians, educators, writers, publishers, Friends of Libraries, trustees and special guests.

So why is Glassdoor attending, you might ask?

Well what better place to connect with individuals who have built careers around sharing information that can benefit others. When it comes to information that job seekers, employees and employers can use, there is an exciting opportunity to learn and share new resources, like Glassdoor, that can help individuals make better career decisions. It’s also worth noting that the ALA Office for Human Resource Development and Recruitment operates a placement service for job seekers and employers.
