Twice I've had the opportunity to interview for such a position. The first time I declined to interview....I was a newly graduated MLS and the world was still full of possibilities. I felt I had the luxury of saying no to such an organization. Today, while interviewing for an admin assistant position at a different for-profit college, my interviewer took one look at my CV and said, "We need a librarian too!" and proceeded to interview me on the spot for the librarian position. I'm scheduled to go back and speak with the dean.
Would such a position be a blight on my CV, or is it a legitimate way to gain much-needed experience?
