Interview Report

IntroductionInterviewing is an art form of intricate discipline that combines preparation and spontaneity in a potent mix. Like any art form, it is practiced so many different levels, depending on the innate talent, hard work, and creativity of its performers. At its best, what really takes place is an "inter-view"- a mutual process of looking inward (inter means " between"). The success depends on first understanding your own internal views. The more self-awareness you cultivate, the greater the ease and skill you will bring to the interview process. The word interview is derived from the French entrevue/entrevoir, meaning, "to see one another". The tremendous opportunity available to find out about yourself through discovering other people, their ideas, and your responses to them can come from interviewing. Successful interviewing requires a basic foundation, advanced research, negotiating an interview, preparation, and recording.The basic foundation for any interviewer is to be able to communicate and listen. Communication is a learned process that never really stops once we initiate it. Communication is also a complex process among differently programmed individuals using an infinite variety of symbols-language being only one kind of symbol. To communicate successfully in the interview setting, both parties must be in a state of readiness, able to share a symbolic system, willing to establish a relationship and atmosphere that facilitates interaction, capable and willing to listen and to engage in appropriate feedback behaviour, and flexible enough to respond sensitively and with good judgment to a wide range of inputs (Beach, 1982). Memorizing lists of principals and reciting them upon demand will not make you a good interviewer.Outline of the interview scheduleMy group consisted in three people; the interviewer, the interviewee and the observer.
