Most employers want to treat job applicants fairly and without prejudice. All employers want to hire the most qualified person for the job. Both goals can be met when the employer is versed in effective techniques for interviewing job applicants. In regard to fairness, it’s easy to recite the reasons why fair and effective interviewing can ometimes seem elusive. Laws and regulations, and their interpretation by courts and egulators, are constantly changing. A quick review of the “Do's and Don’ts” of equal employment opportunity interviewing appears at the end of this booklet, and is titled, “Summary Guide to Pre-Employment Inquiries.” Consistent with the guide’s placement at the close of this booklet, it is most effectively used after reading the more detailed material preceding it. The thought provoking questions on pages 4 and 5 examine the applicant’s qualifications, work attitudes, and career plans. They will help the interviewer discover the most qualified person for the job. The “Successful Interviewing Guide” was developed by Iowa Workforce Development based on information provided by the Iowa Civil Rights Commission and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agencies charged with enforcing discrimination laws.
