One goal of the internship was to help me prepare for the academic job interview process. Part of the interview process includes giving presentations in front of various library stakeholders. In order to help prepare me, Misti and I worked on a presentation together on how I would go about designing a library instruction session for a class called “History of Costume Design.”
I then did a mock interview presentation with several librarians who provided me with feedback. I really enjoyed preparing the presentation and going through this process to help me feel more comfortable with the interview process for an academic library job.
