I also have an interview tomorrow - I'm curious how to handle the fact that I don't have all the experience they want. There's a software program that they want the candidates to know how to use, but I haven't used it before
Sarah DeWitt
21:09
Ha, good way to frame it!
Gerard Collins
24:17
Yes
Elizabeth Weir

Traci W

Tonya Plank
24:26
yes!
Elizabeth Weir
26:47
I feel like I know more about the personality of the one in yellow.
Gerard Collins
27:01
The suit on the far right doesn’t fit
Emma Shine
27:04
True, but she also looks more casual
Elizabeth Weir
27:44
He looks really uncomfortable.
Ren Aung Khin
27:56
can you be overdressed for an interview?
Gerard Collins
28:12
The other look for the guy is more casual, but it looks more professional in comparison.
Traci W
28:48
Are nice jeans okay with a pretty blouse and nice shoes?
Traci W
29:03
okay
Elizabeth Weir
29:25
What about jewelry?
Elizabeth Weir
30:06
Got it.
Elizabeth Weir
33:59
Yes
Gerard Collins

yes
Elizabeth Weir
47:12
Will an interviewer ask why you want to leave your current position?
Traci W
47:52
if they aren’t on LinkedIN, what are some other options for research
Traci W
48:52
I have tried that before and sometimes they are hidden on purpose
Traci W
49:39
okay
Elizabeth Weir
49:43
Often times, if it's an academic library, you can find those people on the university's directory, as I've learned.
Traci W
50:03
this was a public library
Elizabeth Weir
55:50
Do we do thank you letters after the first and second interviews, or just one or the other?
Traci W
56:15
If you get a question that stumps you, what is the best approach?
Elizabeth Weir
57:09
That. Is. Brilliant.
Traci W
57:48
good one!
Elizabeth Weir
58:27
Would it help if we clicked "raise hand" before typing?
Emma Shine
58:35
I’m sure there are questions I should ask, but my mind is just a blank right now
Traci W
58:38
I never know how to answer the question: Tell me about one of your weaknesses
Traci W
59:55
I can’t find the thumbs up
Traci W
01:01:00
can you give examples/
Traci W
01:03:39
Those are great, including the chocolate
Elizabeth Weir
01:03:52
Yaaaaas!
Gerard Collins
01:04:57
I have an interview tomorrow at a library that I interned at over the summer, so I know all of the people on the panel. Is there a particular tack I should take?
Gerard Collins
01:05:07
I don’t want to come across as overly familiar.
Gerard Collins
01:07:03
Yes, thanks.
Emma Shine
01:07:06
Me
Ren Aung Khin
01:07:25
I had someone at my library tell me that even if they know something about the candidate they can't consider it unless it was said in the interview
Emma Shine
01:07:38
Honestly I’m just trying to calm my nerves. I’ve never done an interview before and I wasn’t really expecting this one.
Elizabeth Weir
01:09:22
I've seen people bring copies of their resume with them to interviews. Is that necessary?
Elizabeth Weir
01:10:12
Got it
Elizabeth Weir
01:11:23
Note taking curing the interview. Yay or nay?
Elizabeth Weir
01:11:27
*during
Ren Aung Khin
01:11:45
One question I ask them at the end is "Is anything they would like clarified?" At the library I work at they have to ask certain questions and can't ask for more info during the process
Ren Aung Khin
01:12:54
yes
Emma Shine
01:13:40
Is salary/wages usually a second interview thing?
Elizabeth Weir
01:15:22
Thank you so much for all the great info you've given us!
