The Secret’s Out – Special Librarianship a Great Job for Political Junkies

I doubt that this is much of a surprise to the law library community. US New and World Report has discovered that special librarianship is a great career choice for those who enjoy watching politics. I can’t imagine doing this job without some interest in and knowledge of the machinery of government and the workings of the political process!

Other jobs mentioned in the article: lobbyist, tour guide, reporter, translator/interpreter, journalist. Folks, I think we picked the right one (although journalism wouldn’t be bad…)

If you weren’t following your current career, what would you do?

  1. Although the debatable point is what exactly my current career is :), I’m with you on the journalism choice.
