Naomi House’s interview with success story Justin.

justinh2Naomi:  How did you find your current job?
Justin:  Well, I was looking around to see what was out there and I just stumbled upon The Public Library of Chattanooga, TN.  I had always admired the work that Corrine Hill (Director) and Nate Hill (Assistant Director) had done in the past so I was really excited when I was offered the opportunity to join the team that they were building.

Naomi:  Favorite library you have been to?
Justin:  Besides the Chattanooga Public Library?  Well, I’m a bit partial to the Northland Public Library in Pittsburgh, PA.  That was my library growing up and I just have great memories of being in that building.

Naomi:  Favorite book?
Justin:  The Beatles Recording Sessions by Mark Lewisohn

Naomi:  Favorite thing about libraries/ library technology?
Justin:  No matter where I’m working, I love chatting with the community that visits the library.  They are always very happy to be in our building and excited about the services we offer.

Naomi:  Any websites or feeds or blogs we should be following?
Justin:  I’ve always been so inspired by Michael Stephens at Tame The Web (note: I do contribute to this site).  His message is just so powerful and positive: Encourage The Heart.

Naomi:  Best piece of job hunting advice?
Justin:  Be positive.  Always think about how you can best serve the community.
