Employment

Available jobs at the Library are posted in the Current Positions section below. Within any particular position's listing, see the "How to Apply" section for details on submitting an application. Please note that we do not accept applications, résumés, cover letters, etc., unless applicants are applying for a specific open position.

Selection Process

After the closing date on the position announcement, all applications submitted by the closing deadline are screened to determine the most qualified candidates. These candidates will be contacted for an interview. Due to the large number of applications normally received, it is not possible to interview every qualified applicant. We understand that it can be frustrating for those who do not receive an interview. However, each applicant has the opportunity to submit all appropriate written information with the application.

Interviews

Interviews with a Human Resources representative are scheduled to give selected applicants the opportunity to personally present their abilities and experience.

Final Selection

Those applicants who apply for a specific open position will be informed by mail after a selection has been made. Applicants are welcome to call to inquire on the status of any open position.

Assistance

Applicants who would like assistance in seeking employment may want to use the resources of the Salt Lake City Public Library. The Main Library and branches have information on job search strategies, résumé preparation, and interview techniques. A great deal of background information on local and national employers is also available via our Job & Career database resources.
