12.14.16 – Librarian – Technician Manuals (2 positions)
AECOM, Dulmen and Mannheim, Germany
Sarah P’s comments: These positions were listed on ALAJobs, supposedly back on 11.17, however because of the recent issues with their site, which I have previously noted, I did not see these until today. This is a rare listing because it is working for a corporation (rather than education) and does not require an MLS, though they are requiring cataloguing skills. Because these were posted on ALAJobs, I assume it means they are open to American candidates, and perhaps other nationalities as well outside of the EU.
