May 1999 | 432 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Research from 26 new authors has been integrated into the revision of The Employment Interview Handbook, a successful volume previously published in 1989 by SAGE Publications.

This new Handbook provides a state-of-the-art review of the research in the area of the employment interview. The editors provide an integrated examination of various streams of research. Leading scholars author the individual chapters and discuss the future of their particular line of research, raising issues in need of further investigation. The book concludes with a summary of the volume implications for theory building, research methods, and effective practice.

This Handbook is particularly appropriate for faculty and students in Industrial/Organization Psychology and Human Resource Management as well as researchers and practitioners in employee selection and employment interview procedures and policies.
