    A Tale of Two Interviews

    A Tale of Two Interviews

    Overview

    I use this exercise to introduce myself to students and to get them thinking and writing about basic interviewing skills such as asking open and closed questions and using active and passive listening techniques. Students read (fictional) transcripts of two interviews. I ask them to explain in writing which interviewer did a better job and to provide at least three examples of what the interviewers did or didn’t do that made one interview better than the other, with citations to relevant line numbers from the transcripts.
