This week I asked people who hire librarians:
Would you hire someone with a MLIS for a paraprofessional position (e.g. assistant, clerk, page)? If so, under what circumstances? If not why not?
I do this all the time. We have a library school at our local university and our library system has a Student Librarian program. Many of our student librarians want to stay in our system, but professional positions don’t come up that often.
