2.10.17 – Part-Time Reference Librarian
Walden University, USA (remote/online position)
Sarah P’s comments: Walden listed 3 positions in 2015 but non for the past 1 1/2 years. Walden is an established online university with “more than 47,800 students from all 50 states and more than 150 countries pursuing bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degrees”. As such this is an interesting opportunity to work independently while establishing an international aspect to your career. It is also a chance for non-US librarians to work for a US university. The cons are that the reviews on Glassdoor are mixed. Read them carefully to see if you could be a good fit with this organization.

Degree programs include health sciences, counseling, human services, management, psychology, education, public health, nursing, public administration, technology, and engineering.
