2/4/15 — Managing Assistant Director for Business Resources and Liaison Services
Wenzhou-Kean University, Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province, China
Sarah P’s comments: This is the second position listed this year for Wenzhou-Kean University, a new Chinese-American jointly established higher education institution. Wenzhou-Kean received its final approval from the Chinese Ministry of Education in March 2014. (Click here to see first post.) Note that for this position they are saying an MLIS degree is preferred. If you have an MLIS and Information Literacy experience this could be a good break-in international position. To date there are no posts on the Chronicle’s Working Abroad Forum and only one Glassdoor review.
