I have chosen the job analysis method known as the structured interview. I chose this method because I will be giving the interview and I will be available to answer any questions the incumbent might have. I am friends with the incumbent and we have a good rapport. I realize that the Position Analysis Questionnaire might be the better choice but I chose the interview for the personal aspect that I could bring to it. The PAQ is also very time consuming and I did not want the incumbent to possibly lose interest and start answering the questions with the intent of completion overtaking the intent of accuracy.
