LASSA Presents: Interviewing Skills
So much about finding a job has changed, and yet so much remains the same. We still take great care to format and word our resumes appropriately. We still spend time crafting cover letters that are specific to the job we are applying for. And yet, we now live in a world where remote meetings and, yes, remote job interviews have become commonplace.

Join this session to learn answers to:

> What interview skills carry over from in-person interviewing?

> What new skills should job seekers develop for being a part of remote interviews?

> How does one put their best selves forward on meeting software?

Presenter Mary Bakija completed her MSLIS at the Pratt School of Information without full-time employment in May 2020, entering the job market in the pandemic amidst a rapid rise in virtual interviews. By the time she started as a Program Manager at METRO Library Council in August 2021, Mary was invited to twelve virtual interviews and received four job offers (and was rejected or ghosted by several dozen other employers). For her previous roles in libraries, archives, and news organizations, all interviews were by phone and in person, which she found much more nerve-racking than the virtual experiences.

This event is part of a series programmed and planned by METRO's Library Assistants and Support Staff Association (LASSA). Many thanks to Anthony Wyche, Val Colon, Cheryl Marriott, and the rest of the LASSA board for their hard work in planning this series.
