Soon our graduating students will be embarking on or advancing in their careers.  As they prepare for job interviews, I’ll share some resources for dealing with tough interview questions:

The most difficult interview questions (and answers)–monster.com

Ten toughest interview questions answered–Forbes.com

Three notoriously tough interview questions (and how to answer them)–USA Today

I’ll put in a plug for USM’s Career & Employment Hub as wellPlease share this information with the students.

These are but a sampling of career-related links.  Still, they remind us that non-academic sources have their place in the information landscape.    The Framework speaks of “scholars, organizations, governments, and industries, who might produce information about a topic” (Association of College & Research Libraries, 2016, Searching as Strategic Exploration section, Knowledge Practices subsection).

We librarians are here for the students both through their college careers and afterward.  An early congratulations to our soon-to-be graduates!
