Job Preparation and Search Service

Clarion University of Pennsylvania and the Department of Library Science assist both students and alumni in obtaining positions in libraries and related agencies by acting as a clearinghouse for current job information, and by posting vacancy announcements. Official academic transcripts, however, must be requested by the student from the university registrar. The Department of Library Science publishes a comprehensive position listing on the World Wide Web.

The Career Development Center provides assistance to all students by promoting job opportunities received from public schools, government agencies, business, and industry through Clarion Career Connections - your online career management system.. It also provides assistance for job preparation such as resumes, mock interviews, cover letters, and the job search process.  We recommend that you start job search preparation during your junior year so that you are ready to conduct the job search during your senior year.
