Library Tech Interview

Library Tech
Reno, NV

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at University of Nevada, Reno in November 2012.

Interview Details – Initial contact was by phone 2-3 weeks after completing the online application. The hiring manager didn't ask me any questions but invited me for an in person interview. I interviewed with the library manager who seemed tired but cordial. She asked some questions about my resume, some basic interview questions and took me on a tour. She didn't seem very interested in my experience- just kind of going through the motions. I wasn't too hopeful when I left- I did receive a nice "Thanks, but No Thanks" letter in the mail about 2 weeks later.

Interview Question – 10 words that best describe you.   Answer Question
