The interview stage of a job search can be riddled with
emotions; excitement, nervousness, and stress to name a few. This chat will
explore some of the ways you can be better prepared for your big day. Topics
to guide our discussion include but are not limited to what activities your
interview day may include, how you should prepare, how should you dress, what
questions yo u might expect to get from the search committee, and what to
expect after your interview is complete. While we will focus on academic
libraries, many of the topics cross-over to other types of libraries. Please
come with your questions and be
prepared for a fun and informative chat! Deana Groves, ALCTS New Members
Interest Group (ANMIG) Webmaster, will be your host along with the assistance
of Liz Siler, ALCTS ANMIG Chair. The chat will be on September 13th from 2:00
