Abstract

This paper describes the use of the interview technique as a valid and reliable instrument for predicting job placement and vocational success. The interviews of 144 blind adults were objectively and quantitatively scored, making full use of all responses elicited by the S. The results indicated that job success and vocational placement are significantly related to a number of variables tapped by the interview, such as perception of blindness, learned ways of dealing with tension, interpersonal interaction, and employment potential.
