Congratulations to Dr. Samuel Kaminsky

WAVE Lab member Samuel Kaminsky has successfully defended his dissertation, titled Video-Recorded Vs. Synchronous Interviews: Equivalence and Applicant Reactions. He conducted over 400 interviews with students, using either typical videoconferencing methods or one-way asynchronous methods.

Results suggest that video-recorded interviews lead to less cognitive load, fewer impression management behaviors, and improved perceptions of procedural justice. Interview performance was invariant across administration media. The results generally support the use of video-recorded interviewing as a replacement for initial structured online interviews.

Congratulations on this timely and useful study!
