Job: Library Technician NF-03

4.7.17 –  Library Technician NF-03
US Army Installation Command, Stuttgart, Germany

Sarah P’s comments:  For US librarians here is a chance to get into military library work. I discuss US military work in Chapter 6 of my book, however in short, the positions are listed on USAJobs are either professional positions with overseas benefits, listed as APF (appropriated funds) or local positions, listed as NAP (non-appropriated funds) and which will also state “within local commuting area”.  This position is a NAP position. It is possible to apply for a NAP position and, if you are willing to work without the extra benefits, it is an option to consider as it might be a way to get your foot in the door.

Before applying you should create an account and a profile. Doing so will allow you to have relevant job notifications e-mailed to you as well as store your pre-created resume.  This is important if you are applying for one of the jobs with  a 4-7 day application window as this first step can take up to three days for approval and needs to be done before you are allowed to apply.  The closing date on this position is 4.12.17 so if you are interested you need to begin applying today!
