The Development of an Instructional Program on Employment Interviewing.
McDowell, Earl E.
A team project was conducted to develop software designed to help undergraduate and graduate students play both the roles of interviewer and interviewee. The project was designed to determine how students with various degrees of experience of employment interviewing felt about the software. Students from three sections of a graduate level course and students from three sections of a senior level course participated in the pilot study. The composite sample consisted of 54 interviewing students and 73 writing students. After completing the program, students were asked to respond to two open questions and several closed questions. Results indicated over 80% of the participants felt that the amount of information in the review stacks, and the explanations about the responses to the questions concerning whether the answers were correct or incorrect were the most important advantages of the software program. Overall, the software provides both students who are inexperienced in interviewing and those with more experience, information that will help them perform effectively both as interviewer and interviewee in the employment interview.
