Was this adjective really needed?

I saw the following job posting:

Proficient Library Technician

I don’t know if it is an indictment of the quality of the pool of potential library technician hires, but I can’t believe having to mention that they only want to hear from applicants who are, you know, “skilled” is a good sign.

Latest issue of Associates

Check out the latest issue of Associates: The Electronic Library Support Staff Journal.

It includes an interesting article about Library Technician/Assistants with MLIS degrees.

My dream library technician job

My little Library Technician job mash-up pulled out what sounds like my dream library technician job:

Library Technicians – $46,640+
Canadian Security Intelligence Service / CSIS (Ottawa ON)

Not only could I live in Ottawa, city of wonderful bike trails, but I could get as close to being (the male version of) Chloe O’Brian as I likely ever will.

But my “barely passing grade 8” French dooms me from ever getting a sniff at a job in Ottawa.
