This book offers a practical introduction to effective interviewing based on the advice of leading authorities and research; the focus is on hiring, promotion and succession planning.

The author, a psychologist who has 25 years of cross-industry human resource and business experience, explores issues such as what people are ‘saying’ when they’re not talking, and what people really mean as opposed to the words they use. It describes how to structure an interview while remaining open, inquisitive and skilled in dissecting intangibles that lead to the discovery of value-added information.

In addition to human resource specialists, this book is also being used by interdisciplinary professionals to assess job-related information, as well as business schools and graduate psychology departments.

In summary, Effective Interviewing and Information Gathering will equip the reader to face an interview with a plan for the predictable and the competence to handle and benefit from the unpredictable.

‘Like the beauty of The Royal Ballet or the emotion of a Beethoven symphony,’ writes the author, ‘the interview is a dynamic artistic event consisting of structure and nuance. When played well together, structure and nuance produce a rich, dense full tonality that enables truth.’
