The Three Places To Interview Job Candidates

Eric Jacobsen Blog

One of the reasons you want to interview people in three different places is that candidates will usually be at their very best in the first interview (likely in your office ). After that, if they are pretending, the veneer will come off in subsequent meetings in out-of-the office locations. Also, because most employees can only be successful in their jobs in different locations as well, it makes sense to witness your candidates in different settings.

Place Your Donation Requests Before June 30

Tech Soup Blog

Most of TechSoup’s donation programs limit the number of requests an organization can place per fiscal year – our fiscal year runs from July 1 to June 30. Make sure your organization gets all the hardware or software it needs from TechSoup before our fiscal year ends on June 30, 2012. Why the rush? Don’t worry, you can request products again on July 1, but you don’t want to miss out on getting your fiscal year 2012 allotment.

This is the first installment of a book discussion about Ray Oldenburg’s book The Great Good Place. Like many museum and library professionals, I am enamored of the idea of cultural institutions as “third places” – public venues for informal, peaceable, social engagement outside of home or work. But now, after a careful read of Ray Oldenburg’s book in which he defines and describes third places, I am uncertain of whether it is possible for museums and libraries to be such venues.
