Demystifying the Hiring Process

Back by popular demand!

When: Thursday, April 24, 6-8pm
Where: ART New York – 520 8th Avenue (between w. 36th and 37th St.), 3rd floor. (A/C/E or 1/2/3 to 34th St.)

Registration is required.

Description:
What role does the traditional hiring committee play in the academic library hiring process? Who serves? How do they prepare? What happens during the day-long interview process? And what happens after the candidate leaves—how are decisions made?

Gain insight from four veterans of the hiring process, whose experience derives from a variety of academic library contexts and roles. We’d also like to hear from you: what are your experiences as a member of a hiring committee, as a new hire or as a job candidate? Bring your questions and your experience.
