Before we know it "hiring season" will be upon us and administrators will be looking to hire librarians. Many of these administrator really do not understand exactly what librarians do and because of this struggle when it comes to writing good interview questions. I am often asked by administrators for help finding a librarian like me. In order to help administrators with this task I have developed 18 Interview Questions that will hopefully help them find the perfect Future Ready Librarian. Many of these questions are developed using the Future Ready Librarians Framework as a Reference. Hopefully these questions will help you to find the perfect progressive librarian for your district.
I would also love suggestions for more questions to add to this list. Please feel free to comment below.
