Interview videos

We are about to begin our conversation on Interviewing, the necessary skills one should have. The textbook talks about varying styles of interviews, based usually on the part of the interviewer.

Take a look at the following videos and compare them to the Interviewing Styles article (Embracing Differences, page 166). Review questions 1-8 of this article, as you watch the videos. For extra comprehension, you should also review key concepts of chapters 3 (Listening), 4 (Verbal Messages), and 5 (Nonverbal Messages), and determine the overlap of effective skills.
