Job!

Thursday, July 21st 2005

It’s official! Starting September 1 (or shortly before), I will be gainfully employed.

I’ve accepted a full time librarian position at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Tentatively, my job will combine reference desk work with virtual reference initiatives and some work on the systems side of things.

I’m excited! A little nervous about moving so far from friends and family, but nothing I can’t deal with. I first visited Huntsville when I attended Space Camp there in high school. Who knew I’d end up living in the city?

My final interview at UAH was earlier this week. Everyone I met there was very friendly, welcoming and helpful.

Now I just have to do that pesky finish-earning-the-degree thing :)
