Electronic technology has changed the jobs of librarians and it has changed some of the ways we obtain those jobs. E-Mail and list servs have proven to be valuable assets in networking and encouragement for those seeking jobs. What was once a laborious and often relatively isolated activity has now developed into a national and even international support group of fellow professionals who will pray and provide assistance in the job search.
Resources which once could only be found through small ads in the professional journals, if then, are now available almost instantaneously. Job announcements can be scanned the same day they are posted on the Internet. People can research colleges and cities before attending an interview, so that questions about the school's philosophy, curriculum, and importance of geographic location, local schools, etc., can be more pertinent.
