More Prep, Less Panic: Mock Interviews with Real Professionals!

Join the Los Angeles Archivists Collective and LA as Subject for More Prep, Less Panic, a speed mock interviewing and networking event!

Open to archives students, new professionals looking for a job, or for anyone interested in practicing their interviewing skills. Similar to speed dating, More Prep, Less Panic will provide an opportunity to practice interviewing techniques with experienced professionals in an informal, no-pressure learning environment.

Please wear professional attire and bring plenty of copies of your resume!
