Full Description
Job interviews can be stressful at any point in your career, and many job seekers have limited experience of being interviewed.  Many information professionals who are seeking employment now (or who will be soon) are unsure about their readiness and what to expect when being interviewed for a job.  These role-playing mock interviews will give participants a chance to practice their interviewing skills and receive feedback regarding their performance.  Interviewees will be asked to bring a current resume and prepare and behave as if these are real job interviews.  (More information and instructions will be given to those who register.)  The interviews will be followed by group discussion and Q&A with the interviewers.
 
Who should attend:
Any library professional wishing to gain experience and feedback about their interviewing skills
 
By the end of this program, participants will:
 -  be interviewed by an experienced interviewer
 -  have an opportunity to see how prepared they are for a job interview, in a close-to-real-life setting
 -  receive an individual written evaluation of their interview
 -  discuss job interview preparation and strategy and have a better understanding of what hiring managers want, and don't want
