Abstract

The limited research that has directly addressed the effects of verbal and nonverbal competencies on interviewer perception treats oral communication superficially during the employment interview process. This study was designed to test the effects of two oral communication competencies (content and vocal delivery) on evaluators' assessments of interviewees during a simulated employment interview. These data reveal that the consistency between the quality of content (what is said) and the quality of vocal delivery (how it is said) has a strong impact on evaluators' assessment of personality and evaluators' hiring preference.
