Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Interviewer to me: What is one of the most important things you've learned about writing?

Inactive

Answer:

My response: I had a professor who said "When you want to write one more sentence, don't." She went on to explain how our writing can become repetitive if we're not really listening to and looking at our sentences, paragraphs, and composition. We can start to get lost in the writing, and then the reader gets lost. I think it's about creating powerful, concise sentences, which mainly takes remaining conscious of what you're trying to communicate.

Subject: Library and Information Science

Question:

Do all librarians love to read?

Answer:

Many librarians do love to read. To be a successful reference librarian goes much deeper and broader than a love of reading though. One of THE biggest parts of reference librarianship is an ability to listen to the patron and really hear what they need. Often the patron or student's first question ends up different than the real question. Getting to the best resources and ways of teaching how to use them require an ability to engage the student, listen, ask questions, and "show how" to think out what information is needed, and how to find it. When a student has this skill they can open so many more doors, more easily on their road to learning.

Subject: English

Question:

Interviewer to me: Why did you choose English as your college major?

Answer:

My response: I loved reading, and I loved writing. It seemed like a natural fit, and I think I always imagined I would be concentrating on this subject. I was surprised to find that I was not loving my major! I had always approached English literature (all literature actually) in a kind of artistic and loving-new-perceptions way. Studying English at the college level was much more about critical thinking and critical writing. I'm still glad it was my major; I think it set me up for success as a librarian and in other ways too.
