Are you are a new or aspiring library professional facing the challenges of finishing school, looking for a job, or working hard to succeed in your first position? LLAMA’s New Professionals Section (NPS) may be just what you need.

Many job seekers understand they need to use targeted keywords in their resume to be chosen for consideration by an applicant tracking system (ATS). Fewer, though, are aware of the importance of their formatting choices.
Words have the power to influence, soothe, agitate or amaze. Using them carefully in your jobsearch may not seem that important to you at first thought, but the answer to success may lie in the trivial pursuit to write each word in your resume, your profile or cover letter in an impeccable way to impress and influence the reader.
We start with a basic “platform” of LIS skills, then broaden and build out from there, usually either to create new opportunities or in response to new job responsibilities. The question is, in what direction does it make sense for us to broaden and build? If you commit to ongoing professional development, you want to make sure the new skills you’re mastering open up the opportunities that pique your interest.
