Nailing the Library Interview

Getting that librarian position can be a daunting process. First, you write your cover letter and resume. You wait. Maybe you wait some more? Then comes a telephone interview, followed by the all important on-site interview. After all of this work, hopefully a job offer is the end result!

This page spotlights:

I created this resource after cleaning out an old file cabinet in my office where I came across interview questions from my first librarian job search in 2002. The questions I saw formed a great resource, so I have taken what were old paper copies of tips and advice and updated it with newer, online content.

Since my first library job, I’ve served on a number of search committees, done my own hiring as a manager, and have formulated questions that I like to ask potential librarians as well. I hope you find this resource useful. If you come across FREE articles or sites that might make a good addition, let me know. Best of luck with your job search!
