Phoning It In: My First Phone Interview

January 21, 2007

I had a phone interview for a position at Charlotte School of Law’s library on Wednesday…I’m hoping it went well from the interviewers’ perspectives and I didn’t sound too nervous (I tried to achieve the perfect balance of nervousness mixed with confidence 😉 ).  Going to North Carolina would’ve been nice, considering it was about 20 degrees outside that day and my car was encased in ice, but I’m not being picky at all.  It was a great chance for me to get some experience concerning what it’s like to be involved in a conference call, and to get a taste of the types of questions that people can ask.

Here’s a cute sidelight about Charlotte Law that I enjoyed because I had a beagle mix when I was growing up: the school’s mascot.


I’ve Crossed the Threshold!

January 4, 2007

Yes, I’ve applied for 2 positions, and will soon be submitting my materials for 2 more.  I love that law libraries are now accepting application materials through email…3 seconds, and I know for sure that it went where it was supposed to go.  With snail mail, you send everything off and worry that you wrote the address incorrectly, or that the post office will somehow either lose it or deliver it to the wrong place.

  Now I guess the wait-and-see-with-fingers-crossed period has also officially started.  I’ve already gotten input from some of the law librarians at my university about what they think of the places I’m looking at…I’m very grateful for it – thank you!
