Congratulations! You’ve got an interview… now what? During this interactive workshop, we will 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 following up after the interview. We will practice introductions, answering questions, and telling others about ourselves. We will discuss the benefits of building self-awareness and visualizing your destination. And finally, we will employ activities and prompts to help you cultivate your own professional practice, at any stage of your career.
