Hacking the Academic Interview Session 2: Day of Interview

Thursday, February 23, 2023

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 2 of this series covers the day-of interview. Speakers will discuss preparing for an all-day interview and what to expect, with an emphasis on how to own your narrative, practice self-care, and feel empowered throughout the process.

Please forward any questions or comments to Sandy Enriquez and Emily Homolka at educationcommittee@calarchivists.org. 

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