WITHIN the short span of six months, two important articles appeared in separate journals reviewing the literature on the selection interview. Mayfield (1964) and Ulrich and Trumbo (1965) independently cited 106 publications; 60 in Mayfield, 46 in Ulrich and Trumbo. The two articles contained 28 common references for a total of 134 separate citations covering the period, 1915-1964. However, the important Wagner (1949) review was used as a functional benchmark in both articles. Mayfield reviewed early research on the interview, cited the findings of lack of validity for the process and decried, in echo of Wagner, the lack of empirical studies and the wanton profusion of âopinionâ articles and reports of uncontrolled observations. His review of later research led him to conclude that âknowledge of the selection interview is only a little more advancedâ than it was a t the time of Wagnerâs review in 1949. However, two principal new approaches held promise, he felt. They were: (1) Research dividing the interview into units, providing, in effect, a microanalysis of the procedure in contrast to the usual macroanalysis, and, (2) Renewed concern with âstudying the process of decisionmaking as it occurs in the selection interviewâ instead of viewing
