A Culturally Sensitive Interview Guide for Social Work Faculty Searches
Leung, Patrick
Journal of Ethnic & Cultural Diversity in Social Work, v18 n1-2 p89-109 2009
Based on a review of employment practice literature, social work has not addressed the interviewing process in faculty hiring. Recently, the demand for social work educators has drawn many social work educators to respond to faculty searches. This study focuses on how the legal questions used in the United States for interviewing faculty candidates can be expanded in developing strategies in faculty interviews within certain culturally sensitive parameters. Based on 19 areas of interview questions from the standard legal perspective found in the literature, both culturally and ethnically sensitive and insensitive questions are suggested to be included as an interview guide. After analyzing the items in this newly developed interview guide, the reader can assess the appropriateness of the questions to each candidate, so that hiring of faculty is done fairly and ethically in the hiring process.
