Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2006
Library Associates (http://www.libraryassociates.com), a leader in recruiting and staffing solutions for libraries, recently formed an exciting partnership with Miriam Pollack + Associates (http://www.miriampollack.com), an Illinois-based library consulting firm. With considerable combined expertise in direct-hire recruiting, contract library staffing and consulting in areas of strategic planning, needs assessments and training, this partnership is poised to bring public libraries both expert advice and quality candidates.
Library Associates, a Beverly Hills–based firm, has over 20 years of staffing and recruiting experience, bringing qualified candidates to libraries nationwide. Their personal and careful approach to direct-hire staffing includes thorough research and interviewing, ensuring high-quality candidates who offer enthusiasm and experience. Finding such candidates in today’s market is challenging as job postings alone do not attract many of the best candidates who, due to current employment, are not actively seeking new career opportunities.
A natural way to meet this challenge is through the partnership with Miriam Pollack + Associates, who bring extensive experience and an array of contacts and potential candidates. With over 28 years experience in public libraries, library education and systems, Miriam Pollack is a force in the library world. She served a successful 17-year turn as Assistant Director for North Suburban Library System (IL), where she offered consulting and high-level staffing solutions to public libraries.
“We are excited about the synergy this partnership will bring,” acknowledges Deborah Schwarz, President and CEO of Library Associates, “as these are two companies that will complement each other greatly, to the benefit of our clients and the library community.” She notes that the partnership guarantees dynamic solutions for libraries working with Library Associates who may confront multiple openings and recruiting for directors and other senior staff positions.
The partnership with Miriam Pollack + Associates marks the latest move in Library Associates’ mission to provide the most comprehensive solutions to library staffing challenges. In addition, both companies stay on top of library and employment trends by attending conferences such as the upcoming ALA-Midwinter Meeting and conducting research, such as a recent job-search preferences survey reaching 5000+ respondents that will allow a refinement of recruiting practices.
