Celia Roberts is Emeritus Professor of Applied Linguistics at King's College, London.

Description

The main argument is introduced that access to job opportunities depends on how you talk. The interview is an invisible gate which remains closed to so many migrant workers. A critical take on the job interview asks why it remains such a dominant technology when its design and processes produce social inequality. Key theoretical concepts are discussed in this light and research sites and data briefly described.
