Job: Director, Library Services

3/17/15 –  Director, Library Services
Ross University School of Veterinary Medicine (RUSVM), St. Kitts, Caribbean

Sarah P’s comments: If you search my blog with the keyword ‘veterinary’ you will see see this position has been previously advertised in Feb, March, September & November of 2014.  I am not sure whether the position has not been filled or whether someone changed their mind about coming which does happen.  Of the Caribbean medical schools, Ross is one of the oldest (1982) and, though student reviews are mixed, seems to enjoy a fairly good reputation.  If you have health sciences or medical library experience, here is a chance to become a Director in a unique location.  Note: in 2014 there were seven  medical library positions advertised in the Caribbean.  While there is turnover due to salaries not being the highest I believe this also points to a shortage of traveling qualified medical librarians (which I know to be true in the Middle East). Here is some more info if you are interested:

Jobs: Qatar National Library

3/9/15 –  Qatar National Library Job Fair
Positions: Doha, Qatar
Hiring Fair: Zurich, Switzerland

Sarah P’s comments:  I have never before seen a hiring fair for only one institution so this is an interesting development.  There are a total of five positions listed, all of them needing a level of specialized experience.  If you have the credentials and anything close to the experience requested, I would seriously considering attending.  Yes, it is an expense but for someone trying to expand into an international career, a chance to meet people and interview face-to-face is invaluable.  And, come on, it’s springtime in Zurich…

As for working in Qatar, my comments from earlier posts are that it is a relatively safe and progressive Middle Eastern country.  Negatives are that the cost of living is rising, you must go outside the city for any true cultural experiences, and that lately, the country has tended toward becoming more conservative meaning fewer liquor licenses and more segregation of men and women, etc.  Yes, Qatar is modern but you still need to be willing to accept and respect the religious and social customs of a Muslim country.

3/17 update-  I have received some private comments noting that:

  • salaries are typically lower than average
  • high job turnover (might be related to salary issue)
  • make sure to apply directly to QNL rather than through a headhunter
  • be aware of  ‘Qatarization‘, a policy whereby all jobs are supposed to re eventually filled by nationals

4/4/15 update – there was some question about whether this fair would actually take place however an update has just been posted on IFLAJobs stating that the dates have been altered to: 5-6 May 2015.
