Abstract

Second interviews are formal, in‐depth, on‐site interactions following a screening interview for the purposes of organizational and individual employment decision‐making. The lack of research on the second interview forces interview participants to rely on hunches and anecdotal evidence and/or to make inappropriate inferences from initial interviews. In an attempt to address these problems, this manuscript (a) reviews empirical and popular literature relevant to the second interview, (b) suggests ways in which the communication behaviors of participants in the second interview converge and diverge from the first interview, and (c) constructs propositions to guide research on the second interview.
