The NMRT Resume Review Service Committee is recruiting volunteer resume reviewers and booth greeters, and it is also taking resume review appointments for the 2017 ALA Annual Meeting. Visit our informational website for more details, or keep reading. Thank you to all those who’ve volunteered, so far! More information is below.

Are you on the job market? Is your resume rusty? Are you attending Annual in Chicago? Join us in the ALA JobList Placement & Career Development Center on Saturday, June 24 and Sunday, June 25 to get your resume reviewed by an expert! Walk-in reviews are accommodated as time allows, and we encourage signing up for an appointment in advance. Advanced sign-up for appointments closes on Friday, June 16, at 5:00 PM CST.

We also seek volunteer resume reviewers and booth greeters! If you’ve been a hiring manager or served on a search committee, consider signing up to volunteer an hour or two as a resumer reviewer at Annual 2017! Not ready to review but still want to be part of the action? The Resume Review Service also seeks booth greeters. Booth greeters make sure the resume review service runs smoothly by checking in reviewers and reviewees. Volunteering as a Booth Greeter is a great opportunity for library school students and new professionals; it looks good on a resume and provides you with an excellent chance to network. Sign up today and visit our informational website for more details.

The sign-up period for these volunteer opportunities closes Friday, June 16, at 5:00 PM CST. People registering between Saturday, May 27, and Friday, June 16, will be notified of their volunteer schedule by Tuesday, June 20. If you have any questions, please contact NMRT Resume Review Service Committee Chair Brandy Horne and Assistant Chair Hannah Buckland, at
