440_3626914Do you know what really makes for a good library IT staffer? Do you wish you knew what pitfalls to look out for when hiring one?

It’s not easy to hire for a position where it’s unlikely you fully understand the position’s responsibilities or challenges, let alone what exact skill set you need a hire to have.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn what to look for and for red flags that can cause issues down the road
  • Find out how job ads can actually turn off qualified applicants
  • Hear real words of wisdom, from current library IT managers

When it comes time to hire your library’s next IT person, you’ll be better prepared!
