Successful Interviewing Guide

The revised Successful Interviewing Guide provides valuable information to employers and workers on the application and interviewing process. The Guide was developed by Iowa Workforce Development with input from the Iowa Civil Rights Commission and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

The Guide provides information on:

  • Writing a Job Description
  • Advertising the Job
  • Discovering an Applicant’s Qualifications
  • Avoiding Discrimination During the Hiring Process
  • Summary Guide to Application and Pre-Employment Questions
  • Sample Employment Application
  • Workforce Resources for Employers

This Guide can be printed from this web site using the Successful Interviewing Guide link below. Limited printed copies of the Guide are also available through local IWD Workforce Centers.

NOTE: The Guide is designed for general educational purposes only and is not intended, nor should it be construed as or relied upon, as legal advice. Please consult your legal counsel or other employment advisor for specific legal advice.
