The panelists from diverse library settings (academic, community college, special, and public libraries) will take an inside look at the entire hiring process and provide practical tips and strategies to deal with a library interview based on research and experience. Learn how to highlight crossover skills, techniques to assess the work environment to more confidently provide answers to interviewers as well as learn when to use/avoid social media.
