Whether making products or making laws, businesses, organizations, and governments all require up-to-date information about the people they serve. They often rely on professional interviewers to get the information. Interviewers usually work by asking a set of prepared questions and then carefully recording the responses. They look for lifestyle information about spending habits, political preferences and the like. Interviewers need to be good listeners. They also need to be cautious not to influence answers one way or another. Interviewers also work in doctors’ offices and healthcare facilities. Before beginning any treatment, it’s necessary to have accurate information detailing the patient’s medical history and health coverage. Being able to work well with people is essential for this career. You need to be pleasant and tactful, even after hours of sitting or standing. Also important is a talent for organization. Part of the job may entail compiling and sorting the data collected. The workplace is usually an office setting. Positions can be part-time or full-time, days, evenings and weekends. Experienced interviewers are more likely to choose their schedules…and may move into supervisory roles. Employers require at least a high school diploma, or its equivalent, and often put a premium on speaking a second language. Without the contribution of interviewers, many important decisions would be based on incomplete or inaccurate information.
