Interviewee Perceptions of Employment Screening Interviews: Relationships among Perceptions of Communication Satisfaction, Interviewer Credibility and Trust, Interviewing Experience, and Interview Outcomes.
Jablin, Fredric M.; And Others
A study examined employment screening interviews to determine the relationships between an interviewee's perceptions of interview communication satisfaction, interviewer credibility and trust, previous interviewing experiences, and a number of interview outcomes, including expectation of a second interview. Data were collected from 69 students interviewing at a university business placement office subsequent to actual employment interviews. The results indicated that an interviewee's previous interview experiences, the status of the interviewer, and whether the interviewee was later offered a second interview did not significantly affect perceptions of interview communication satisfaction or interviewer credibility and trust. However, those persons who expected a second interview differed significantly on a number of perceptual dimensions from those who did not expect such an interview. The findings suggest that interview communication satisfaction is most strongly related to expectation of a second interview offer. (FL)
