Let's Experiment
Not "What do you want?". ("Never ask that question!") But - what do you need? Are you looking for an apartment, a job, a ride to somewhere, assistance with something? Post here, and maybe one of my readers can help you! It's happened before.

There are many different kinds of libraries to work in! I currently work in an academic (ie college) library, but I also work in the library of a major news organization. You could be a school library media specialist (ie elementary-high school), a public librarian (where you could specialize in children or teens), a cataloger, or you could a different route and become an archivist! (which I am also!) You could also try specializing and work in a law library or a medical library (this is especially good if your current career gives you knowledge in one of these areas)

I really enjoy seeing the different topics the students are researching about. And its nice to be able to find something that works for them, and see the relief that they can stop researching and start writing!

When you choose a library school to go to, make sure the program is ALA Accredited!! (that info can be found here: http://www.ala.org/ala/educationcareers/education/accreditedprograms/index.cfm)

I have an MSIS (Masters of science in Information science) which is Equivalent to an MLS, that I just got in 2008. Your Google-fu is going to become awesome. My friends ask me for help finding info all the time because they know I'm faster at it then they are :-)

I need to know how to write a VBscript for a report within the next 24 hours otherwise I've been threatened with a write-up.

Guess who never wrote anything more than a simple If Then one before :/

I can't help with vb script but your boss sucks.

A place to live, where I can pay month to month until I am solidly employed again), with 2 cats, starting on September 1st, hopefully costing $500-600.and near public transit because the seizures, which happen less than 6 times a year, still happen enough to keep me from driving.

If you want something like that in Portland, OR, I can give you some information. I'm guessing that's not the case, though.

I can totally recomend Hipsandcurves.com
The boned corsets are of very sturdy make and they deliver quickly.
The prices are generally $150 for the steel boned.

Just moved to Central Oregon (Bend), and need a job. I have an A.A., creative writing/retail/animal training/large amount of cash handling experience, and am a fast learner and a dedicated employee. I'm willing to move to the coastal side of the mountains (Salem, Eugene, Portland) if there are job opportunities, as things are starting to get tight over here.

I need some time off. In the past year, not taking into account holidays, I've taken exactly 2 days off. 4 weeks of vacation time will roll off into "sick time" come Sept. 1 ... what a waste. I gotta figure out something different.

I'm looking into getting a certificate in Database Management at the community college where I work part-time. I have to choose between SQL and Oracle. I need to know the difference in the real world job opportunities to help me decide which to do.

I live in naperville (a burb of chicago), and my job is ending in late september so a Job would be great. I have a bachelor's in Business CIS and am nearly done with a masters, I've worked help desk for one year and worked in the government for 2 years, I'm hardworking and learn fast so it doesn't have to be a strickly Tech job.

I need a job in the Hartford area. I won't be able to move for three more years - the only way I could do a Boston-area job would be with free crash space on the Boston end for weekdays, and even that would be seriously dicey, or if it paid enough to justify two hours' commute each way.

I'm a professionally trained baker, but I also have solid office admin skills -- all the usual Microsoft programs, sure, but give me an hour and a manual and I'll be up and running on ANY end-user program, I've done it before. I've just finished up working as a census crew leader, so I've got supervisory and what amounts to HR experience.

My boyfriend can use a decent job. He's in the Seattle area. I'm not sure what he's looking for off the top of my head, but can get the info tonight.

If anyone happens to know some kind, nifty, relatively financial solvent people in the DC area who need a place to live and would like to be near downtown, please feel free to send them my way.

I'm currently looking for housemates and would like to have folks lined up by the end of the month.

Thanks as always for doing these kinds of things and using your awesome connecting skills for good!

Also, Babylon 5 allusions make me LOL with happy geekishness ;)

I could actually use someone to type up some of my student evaluations so that I can send them out with job applications. I think I've got 6 classes worth.

For money, obviously.

Quite simply, like everybody else, I'm sure, I need a job. Phlebotomy by preference, since I am certified and trained now and all ... but I've done customer service in general since I was sixteen years old. All sorts of customer service. Security, hotel night audit, and live help for Lulu.com, in the last ten years. At this point, I'm even willing to move out of Raleigh, or North Carolina entirely, if there's a steady job at the other end.

You've probably looked all up and down the university system, but I'd suggest finding out what temp service UNC hospital is using for records-- that is the best way to move into other, real hospital jobs there.

Also, if just anything might work, I just got a 'looking for' email on the ABCDurham list (I live in Downtown Durham and work in Chapel Hill) for a sales/design job... if you like, email me at lochinvar at gmail dot com, and I'll fwd the post. I have another friend who does labwork in Hillsboro I'll ask as well whether his lab has something in Phlebotomy-- I gotta ask him anyway for another friend who is an anesthesiologist.

Good luck!
