Abstract:

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