Diversity Never Happens: The Story of Minority Hiring Doesn’t Seem To Change Much | Editorial
And so we meet again,
You know it has been quite some time since my last post. A few days ago I was pondering on ways on how to make myself more marketable within the profession and whether or not race, ethnicity and gender are still predominant limiting factors when it comes to minorities and their experiences in finding employment. With that being said I wanted to share an interesting article I found on libraryjournal.com. The article specifically discusses the hiring trends of minorities within the library profession and the impact that minorities as patrons have on libraries. Reading this prompted me to think about the experiences I may come across as a potential/future information specialist, and what actions fellow minorities can take to guarantee their place in the field of library and information science. I am curious to know what others think, their experiences in their search for employment. So by all means check out the link below, take a few moments to read, ponder and post. I look forward to discussing this hot topic with my fellow informationists!
Thanks and until we meet again
