Teaching Interviewing for Career Preparation. Second, Revised, Enlarged Edition.
Stewart, Charles J.
This book is intended to aid high school and college instructors in designing and teaching units or courses in the fundamentals of both informational and employment interviewing. The communication skills considered in the book will aid students in understanding and handling important interviewing situations that they will encounter in every job throughout their lives. The skills developed in the book are equally important for a journalist, poll taker, or any fact finder bent on amassing information through the interview process. Sections of the first part of the book are: Interviewing Defined; Interviewing and Other Forms of Communication; Fundamentals of Interviewing; Informational Interviewing; and Employment Interviewing. The second part of the book presents three sets of practical exercises: (1) Becoming Aware of Your Involvement in Interviews; (2) Learning the Principles of Interviewing; and Practicing Interviewing Skills. A list of 76 resources for further reading are attached. (RS)
