The goal of this blog is to facilitate communication between job-hunters and hiring managers in the library and information professions. Although these two groups seemingly have a common purpose, honest interactions are often restricted by pressure, fear, and the mysterious codes of the hiring process. To this end, this blog will present short, survey-based interviews with individuals who hire librarians and allow open but moderated commenting. Both commenters and interviewees have the option to remain anonymous. I hope you will participate. The link to take the survey for hiring managers, as well as an email for submitting potential survey questions, is here: http://hiringlibrarians.wordpress.com/participate/
