Abstract

This study examines the top ten soft skills in 30 days of job postings for librarians, curators, archivists, and media collections specialists. It compares these skills in advertisements for Mississippi jobs and compares them to the postings of jobs from other states using data compiled by the JobsEQ software. The software pulls job advertisements from over 30,000 websites. This study then looks at Mississippi's only American Library Association Accredited MLIS program curriculum to see where these soft skills are addressed.
