Hacking the Academic Interview: Session 1

Wednesday, September 14, 2022

10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)

Webinar Description:

Co-hosted by the SCA Education Committee and Membership Committee, "Hacking the Academic Interview" is a workshop series featuring roundtable discussions with library professionals who have navigated the technical, logistical, and emotional aspects of the academic interview process. This three-part series is designed for anyone interested in learning about the various stages of the interview process—the job search and application process, interview day, salary negotiation and recuperation from a failed search. Speakers in this series come from a range of backgrounds and institutions (including the University of California, the California State University, and community colleges). Each workshop will focus on a different part of the interview process. The session will open with speaker introductions and will then proceed to a Q&A session using questions submitted live and in advance. This series will not be recorded.

Session 1 of this series covers the "pre-interview" stage of the process. Speakers will discuss finding and applying for academic positions, covering topics such as how to 'read' a job description, navigating imposter syndrome, writing a cover letter/CV, applying for jobs as a recent graduate, etc.

The cost is $10 for SCA members; $5 for student members; $20 for non-members; and $5 for unemployed or precariously employed individuals. 


Our speakers for Session 1 include:

  • T-Kay Sangwand, Librarian for Digital Collection Development at the University of California, Los Angeles
  • Erika Montenegro, Instruction and Outreach Librarian at East Los Angeles College
  • Azalea Camacho, Archivist and Special Collections Librarian at Cal State Los Angeles

Sessions 2-3 will be announced in 2023. Please forward any questions or comments to Sandy Enriquez at educationcommittee@calarchivists.org.  

Registration is open until September 13. Online payment is required.
