Library resources for job interviews.

LinkedIn Learning - View video courses about Negotiation Tips and Salary Negotiation.

The New York Public Library has various resources such as books, e-books, and online video courses that will help you to prepare yourself to negotiate your salary during a job interview. 

Start by learning salary negotiation tips by viewing video courses on the LinkedIn Learning database, formerly known as Lynda.com. The courses are presented and led by career coaches and business professionals. They are ranked into three levels; beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Start by login into LinkedIn Learning (Lynda.com) by clicking on the link below and logging in with your NYPL library card and PIN. First, create an account to track course progress, create playlists of potential coursework, and keep course notes. Some courses provide supplemental materials like exercise files and relevant work samples that you can download.

Access the LinkedIn Learning database at https://www.nypl.org/collections/articles-databases/lyndacom
