Another one down.

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but the truth is, NOTHING is happening on the job front, and it seems silly to treat this as a 'Twitter' to just post: "Day 233, still nothing".

I'm hoping on two jobs that closed last Friday, one less than 200 miles away, and another in TN. Both college librarian positions.

In the meantime, I've actually gone and registered with Kelly Services, and they have already sent my resume for one temp job that may turn into a permanent position, as a Deputy Clerk for the 2nd Court of Appeals. (and remembering an old episode of "Green Acres" did ask to make sure it was Appeals and not Apples!).

I've also filled out many applications for USA jobs for on-base Supervisory Librarian/librarian Tech positions (Lib Tech on the bases pay just as much as a Supervisory Librarian position!).

So, anyway, today I received this letter for a job to which I applied a few MONTHS ago (the name has been asterisked out to protect the innocent):

Thank you for applying for the Assistant Director position at N*****.

Unfortunately, N***** experienced a substantial cut in funding during the state legislative session. This reduction in state funding will not allow us to fill this open position.

Our hope is that we will be able to find additional support in the future that will allow us to again advertise, and fill, this position.

Executive Director
