Title: Negotiating Solidarity
Subtitle: A Social-Linguistic Approach to Job Interviews
Written By: Caroline Lipovsky
Description:

"Negotiating Solidarity: A Social-Linguistic Approach to Job Interviews"
explores the linguistic co-construction of self-presentation in job
interviews. It shows how candidates construct their professional
identities, and establish co-membership and build rapport with their
interviewers. Specifically, it illustrates how candidates enact their
professional expertise and put their qualities forward, and highlights the
linguistic features that succeed (or fail) to make a good impression on
interviewers. Using extracts from authentic job interviews, Lipovsky
illustrates the influence of candidates’ communicative styles on the
impression they make on their interviewers, and the part that candidates’
semantic and lexico-grammatical choices play in defining the personal
affinity between interviewer and candidate, and consequently in the hiring
decision.
