I am interested in finding out anyone else's experience with finding a librarian job outside of your current area. I received my MLS in May of 2010 and so far I have not been able to find a full-time librarian position. I am making do with a part-time paraprofessional position at a public library and a part-time reference librarian position at another public library.
When I was in library school professors, mentors, etc. all seemed to reinforce the idea that anyone willing to move would have "no problem" finding a job. I have applied for literally dozens and dozens of jobs all over the country, and I am absolutely willing to move, but I have only received responses from local jobs, nothing from jobs outside of my area. My resumes/cover letters are well written, clear of typos, etc., so I don't believe that is the problem.
Anyone else had this experience, or had any success with relocating for a library job? I would be interested to hear anyone's comments, experiences, advice, etc.
