Tutorial: Effective Interviewing
Interviewing is an important part of the communicative life of any organization. There is no manager, no worker who will not at some time or other participate in an interview. For many managers interviewing is a crucial aspect of their jobs. Nearly everyone, of course, has an initial job interview, and when we hear the word interview this is what we sometimes think of. An interview is basically a specialized pattern of verbal interaction. It is specialized in that there is a specific purpose for initiating the interaction and there are specific content areas to be explored. The interview differs from the ordinary conversation in that we expect more control to be exerted in the interaction, that extraneous matters be excluded, and that the interviewer- interviewee role relationship be maintained.
