We are excited to participate in the SLA Annual Conference
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 11, 2007
Cadence Group®, an information and records management services firm based in Atlanta, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by The Special Libraries Association (SLA) to present a session at the SLA 2007 Annual Conference on June 3-6 in Denver, Colorado. The conference creates an environment for networking, communication, learning and other developmental opportunities for information professionals.
SLA selected Cadence Group from over 50 submissions to present a session on "The Lost Art of Interviewing: How to Hire Without Regret." Julie Schein, vice president, and Belinda DeLisser, director of recruiting, for Cadence Group will make the presentation based on their research and experience in helping librarians understand how to hire staff that can be an asset in an information environment.
This session is based on the premise that interviewing and hiring library staff is an as-needed function and receives little training attention. Thus, many librarians are unfamiliar with basic interview techniques. Librarians need to be able to effectively interview candidates about their library-related skills and also need tools to help applicants demonstrate what they know. This presentation will guide the audience through sample interview scenarios, provide lists of questions to ask and not ask, and present information on testing for library specific skills.
"We are excited to participate in the SLA Annual Conference," stated Cadence Group President and CEO, Tina Baker. "Julie has her Masters in Library Science and has worked as a professional librarian in special libraries for more than 20 years. She has a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to share with others. Julie combines her expertise with Belinda, who has exceptional recruiting skills and has elevated our recruiting process for librarians, records managers, and other information professionals to another level since she stepped into the leadership role."
For more than 15 years, special libraries in law firms, corporations and government agencies have used Cadence Group's library services for assessments, library automation, reference/research work, cataloging, abstracting and indexing, training, and when needed, complete library management. Other organizations have used In-forté, Cadence Group's enterprise virtual library solution to save money by aggregating content purchases, then organizing and distributing qualified information to target audiences. "In addition to saving the company money, we were able to acquire research data that was both more comprehensive and actionable than the other alternative we had considered," stated the manager of market research and customer intelligence for a Fortune 100 telecommunications company.
