Your Monthly-ish Reminder: Interview Questions Repository

Have you been on a library interview recently?  Or are you prepping for one?

Sounds like you could use The Interview Questions Repository!

If you’ve had a library interview recently, help this resource grow by reporting the questions you were asked:

or by sharing this link widely with your friends and colleagues.

If you are about to go on an interview, use the spreadsheet:

to help you prepare.

Top tip: Switch the spreadsheet to list view, in order to be able to limit by answers – you can choose to only look at the phone interviews at public libraries, for example.

Bottom tip: For respondents, you should be able to edit your answers, if you think of something to add, etc.

You will also always be able to find these links in the sidebar to your right —>

If you’d like to respond to any other surveys, or otherwise participate in this blog,

this page

will give you links and options.

Thanks for reading, readers!  Thanks for contributing, contributors!

If you think a repository of questions  that people have been asked in library interviews is a useful tool, please help keep it dynamic and relevant by sharing this post with at least one person today.  Thanks!


In other news, my husband and I are so close to having just purchased our first house (stupid forever-taking escrow).  This means I am *extra* busy, living out of boxes and organizing my stuffs.  I think I’ve got posts scheduled far enough in advance that you shouldn’t notice any interruption of Hiring Librarians service, but on the off chance you do…. that’s why.  Please forgive this poor new homeowner (new homeowner!).

  1. Congratulations on buying your first house! I’m impressed you got posts scheduled in advance with all the extra work that goes into purchasing and moving. I would have understood re-postings from the archives. Happy moving!


  2. Could you ask sometime about dress for male candidates?
    thanks – (a guy)
