Tips for applying
The following are some tips for applying to student library jobs with the University of Toronto Libraries:
Tailor your cover letter to the job
- Cover letters and resumes that speak to the specific job and required qualifications stand out more than generic applications
- Think about:
- Why are you interested in the job you are applying for?
- Visiting the library website to learn more about it before applying
- How your skills are transferrable. You may not have direct library experience, but think about your other experiences – e.g., volunteer, clubs, previous employment – and how they can apply to the role. Highlight this in your resume and cover letter
About personal information
Please do not include personal information like photographs, age, or marital status
Format & content
- Keep a simple format for your resume and cover letter
- Focus on the content versus the style of your application
Contact your references and confirm they are available and willing to be listed as a reference on your application.
