Introducing: Librarian Job Ad Drinking Bingo!

A little end-of-the-day humor for my job-hunting librarian friends: here’s Librarian Job Ad Drinking Bingo!

It’s easy to play: just scroll through the postings on the ALA JobList site. Every time you see one these items below: a buzzword, a litany of preferred advanced qualifications, or one of those bullet points that just makes you think “WTF!” – take a drink!

If you get five in a row, shout out “Bingo!” You’ll be sloshed in no time! Β (…but as those ads say, my friends–please drink responsibly).

  5. This is so spot it’s freakish – which I mean in an entirely good way. THANK YOU for the laugh. I just got another rejection, and a humerous perspective on the absurdity of it all is just what I needed. (My personal favorite: “Three years’ experience for entry-level job.” Hahahahaha!)

  6. “This is so spot it’s freakish” – should read as “”This is so spot *on* it’s freakish.” I guess I’m in editing mode vis-a-vis writing cover letter after cover letter. πŸ˜‰

  7. I saw a 15 hr/week position and preferred qualification was an MLIS…raise your hand if you can pay off a Master’s degree working 15 hrs/week!
