Lots of options but unsure of which to choose?

Hi I'm a senior in high who's interested in a variety of fields but I don't know which one to choose. I took an accounting class at my school and really enjoyed but I also like the idea of going into library science. Another field I've been looking into is law but I've heard a lot of conflicting advice on that. Lastly I'm semi interested in computer science and game development but I don't know much about that at the moment. I'd love any advice that I could get!

How do I find a job as a school librarian?

I'm a resident of Syria and have already completed my bachelor's in library and information. I also have 6 years of experience working in libraries. Finding a job has been incredibly difficult because of the constant conflict/war in my country.

Questions Regarding A Librarianship Career

How much does a Librarian earn right out of college? What majors are required to become one, and what non-essential majors would give me an advantage in the field? What types of Librarians receive the highest wages? Also, is it possible to become hired as a Librarian without going to college? Should I consider an internship at a library, as well? What would be the best way to become a Librarian in a new country outside of the United States of America (Tanzania, East Africa)? As of writing these questions, I have experience in Retail (as a Sales Associate and Section Manager): what would be the best way to translate the skills from that field and those positions in relation to Librarianship on a resume?

What does a Library Technician do on a daily basis and how does it compare to the work of a librarian and a Records and Information Manager.

I am a female looking to gain information about working in a professional library setting as a Library Technician. I would like to hear from others who are in this field, what opportunities came up and what, if any, further education was needed. I would like to hear from others in the RIM field. #Library #LibraryTechnician #RIM #recordsandinformationmanagment

Whats the best way to study?

I like studying a lot, Text books, e-books, but I am not always able to get the right position to study. Sometimes through listening to music, but the problem is I don't always remember what I study when I don't remember the music I was listening to. #teaching #teacher #education #music #school #student #books #studying #library
