Career Resources

METRO's career resources enable our members to meet maximum career success in the library and archives discipline.

Job Bank
Our Job Bank is a leading source for open positions in the tri-state area. We invite any employer - regardless of membership status - who is looking for a highly trained information professional to submit their post to our Job Bank. Please review our Job Bank FAQ for information on posting a position.

What is the fee to post a job?
Our Job Bank is free of charge for libraries, archives, museums, and other information organizations in New York State, New Jersey, and Connecticut.

How to Post to METRO's Job Bank:
You must be logged in to our website to post to our Job Bank -- whether or not you are a member of our organization (view our member directory to find out). Feel free to create an account, regardless of your membership status.

  1. Access the Jobs module by clicking "CAREER RESOURCES→JOB BANK". Next, click the "JOBS" tab, then "ADD JOB". 
  2. You can complete all fields or post all details in the "Description" box.

    • The more detail you provide, the easier it will be for potential employees to find you.
    • NOTE: When pasting text from a Word document, use the "Paste from Word" icon to clear out additional code that Word will include when you copy and paste.
  3. Assign categories/subcategories to the listing. This not only helps job seekers narrow their searches in a large Job bank, but also improves your search engine ranking for the listing.
  4. Click "ADD JOB".

After posting your job, don't forget to assign categories/subcategories to the listing. This not only helps job seekers narrow their searches in a large job bank, but also improves your search engine ranking for the listing.
