This literature review examined the practical application of uncertainty reduction by describing how employment interview behaviors inform existing theory. The review cites C. R. Berger and R. J. Calabrese (1975) whose research proposes that strangers gather information to increase predictability or explanation of each other's behavior. F. M. Jablin (1987), whose research suggests that the interview serves as a job preview that helps applicants prepare to enter an organization is also cited. The first section of the literature review summarizes what is known about communication behaviors within the interview. The second part describes anticipatory socialization and how it relates to the employment interview. The third section examines uncertainty reduction in detail and shows how this interpersonal communication theory is useful for explaining interviewing behaviors. The final part offers suggestions for both interviewers and applicants. It is concluded that uncertainty reduction theory and anticipatory socialization research generally suggest a more balanced, conversational interaction that provides an exchange of accurate information concerning the organization, interviewer, and applicant. Contains 59 references. (Author/NKA)
