Structured Interviews: Developing Interviewing Skills in Human Resource Management Courses
Doll, Jessica L.
Management Teaching Review, v3 n1 p46-61 Mar 2018
Structured interviews are widely used in the employment process; however, students often have little experience asking and responding to structured interview questions. In a format similar to "speed dating," this exercise actively engages students in the interview process. Students pair off to gain experience as an interviewer by asking and scoring structured "behavioral" interview questions and gain practice responding to questions as an interviewee. In both roles, students engage in building interview skills and applying course content. This activity is intended for instructors of human resource management and/or staffing/selection classes.
