Title: Predicting postinterview impressions from preinterview information: An examination of behavioral mediators
Author: Kohn, Laura Stephanie
Advisor: Schneider, David J.
Degree: Master of Arts thesis
Abstract: Consistent with previous findings, interviewers' postinterview evaluations of applicants for correction officer positions were positively related to preinterview information on the applicants. The interviewer's conduct of the interview appeared to mediate this effect in a manner consistent with the behavioral confirmation predictions of a process model of the interview (Dipboye, 1982). Individual differences among interviewers were found in the extent to which they used preinterview information in reaching their decisions. Additionally, the instructions which interviewers were provided with appeared to play a role in the manner in which interviewers rendered their ratings about applicants on ten interview dimensions.
