The Development of an Interviewing Course.
A communication course dealing specifically with interviewing theory was designed to meet the needs of technically oriented university students. Several communication theory, interviewing, and interpersonal communication texts were chosen. Additional library searches on interviewing in the areas of vocational rehabilitation, home economics education, industrial education, and industrial technology failed to produce much helpful material. Course objectives included helping students (1) understand basic interpersonal communication theory, (2) understand the common types of interviewing used in the workplace, (3) use these interviewing types upon graduation, (4) appreciate the need for interviewing strategies in the work place, (5) be ready to participate in an employment interview, and (6) write a professionally correct resume. (A course syllabus is included.) (MM)
