Employment Interviewer

Employment interviewers serve as liaisons between candidates seeking jobs and employers seeking qualified workers, determining the best matches between applicants and jobs. They interview applicants, evaluate their eligibility and qualifications, and determine the most suitable jobs for the applicants. They then connect applicants with employer job orders, or contact employers directly. They placing job orders with employment agencies, question employers to determine their needs, and visit employers to find out about job openings. Those who work for State or local government assess applicants' qualifications and determine the appropriate job classification. They may also conduct workshops, help applicants with resumes, and administer assessment tests. Those who work for private employment agencies act as sales people, selling the job to the applicant and the applicant to the employer. Those who work for large companies work under the supervision of human resources managers in the human resources department.

Job Skills

Employment interviewers must be high-energy, poised, tactful, patient, and professional people. They must have highly-developed telephone skills and sales ability. They need to be free of ethnic or social prejudice, and be able to process facts and present analysis clearly and concisely. They should also be very interested in working with people.


The salaries of employment interviewers vary depending on a number of factors such as location and type of employer, and length and type of experience. Median wages vary between $11.54 per hour and $13.57 per hour. Experienced employment interviewers can earn up to $13.60 per hour. However, they often earn commissions from private employment agencies of between 30 and 50 percent of the employer or applicant fee. Most work full time and standard business hours, and most employers offer paid vacation, sick leave, medical, dental, and life insurance, and partially paid retirement plans.

Training and Education

Most employers require candidates to have a bachelor's degree with emphasis in personnel and industrial relations, psychology, social studies, and interviewing techniques. Some employers will waive college requirements if the candidate has substantial work experience. Many employers offer on-the-job training in areas such as agency procedures, classification of jobs, and interviewing techniques. Firms that hire highly-trained employees such as accountants, lawyers, engineers, or executives prefer employment interviewers who have some degree of experience in the relevant field.

Job Outlook

Between 2002 and 2012, the number of employment interviewers is expected to increase much faster than the average. Temporary employment agencies and personnel consulting firms will create the most new jobs. However, growth will not occur in local government agencies due to reduced budgets and the rise in usage of computerized job matching services, particularly over the Internet.
