Book: Linguistic Penalties and the Job Interview

Chapter: Knowledge and Experience Brought into the Interview

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.25083


This chapter focuses on those aspects of the linguistic penalty which stem from different experiences of work and of selection processes and of presenting the institutional self, before coming to the UK. This somewhat different cultural capital is then compared with the discursive and communicative regimes of the interview.
