Congratulations, you got an interview... now what?! During this workshop we'll look at what to expect when interviewing at different types of libraries: academic, special, and public. We'll discuss both remote and in-person interviews, and talk about the importance of doing your research, preparing questions for your interviewers, and showing confidence and personality during your interview. We will talk about, and critique, interview-appropriate attire, as well as give you tips on staying comfortable while looking professional. We will work on developing your elevator pitch, and practice answering the most commonly asked interview questions. And, finally, we will provide advice on how to follow up after the interview. Throughout, we'll emphasize how to go beyond the qualifications listed on your resume in order to show a potential employer that you are the right candidate for the job.
