I got the job!

I accepted an offer today for the job I interviewed for last month, Reference Librarian I.  My MLS is not going to waste!  My first day is March 3rd.

It's a little overwhelming because I'm moving for the position, and Dan won't be able to come right away because of his thesis defense in March.  I'm moving to an area where I have family though so I'll stay with my aunt for a few weeks until I find a place to live.  She doesn't have internet access so I'm sure I'll find that apartment pretty quickly!!

Thanks to everyone that gave me advice and well wishes for my interview!  It was really helpful and appreciated.

Attention librarians!

I'm happy to report that I have an interview for a Reference Librarian I (full-time!) position next week.  Apparently my cover letter and resume actually grabbed someone's attention finally.  Do any of you have some helpful advice for me? 

I have to prepare and present a lesson plan for a basic internet skills class and write a statement about my experience with technology in the library and in personal life.  I'm not too nervous about those since I'm just out of school and used to coming up with stuff like that.  I am a little nervous because this is my first professional interview, and I don't know what to expect.

Wish me luck!
