applied for 2 research librarian jobs today.
would have applied for a 3rd, but an in depth look at their online application found it to be disorganised, contradictory, and poorly worded. something tells me that if they can’t present a decent application that working there would be a nightmare.

because…you know…if you are currently working there…you don’t…have…an end date…
