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.

The Great Good Place Book Discussion Part 1: Can Cultural Institutions Be Third Places?

Museum 2.0

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.
