A field interview is a specific form of interviewing potential new hires by asking mostly open-ended questions. These interviews are meant are meant to offer a broader portrait of the interviewee and to give the prospective employee an opportunity to provide meaning and context to experiences on a resume. An employer gives a statement that the interviewee is expected to respond to rather than the employer asking a question that could be resolved with a “No” or Yes.” Questions can include inquiring about general attitudes, further details into personal experiences and beliefs. Employers who conduct these types of interviews will ideally get a more comprehensive biography of an applicant and understand what his or her general philosophy is toward the type of work that will be expected.
