Abstract [en]

The purpose of this qualitative study is to create an understanding for if and how nonverbal communication and the learned gender structure influence interactions during employment interviews for executive posts. The study is conducted from a social constructivist perspective where it is argued that the individual is created through social interactions. In order to obtain understanding for social gender structure and nonverbal communication in social interactions observation has been utilized as a method. In addition an observation matrix based on nonverbal behavior and masculine and feminine hexis has been established. The results include both the specific individual’s and the general interactions that took place during the employment interviews. The focus in the analysis, however, concentrates on the interactions between individuals. By focusing on interactions between individuals we are able to capture the nonverbal communication and in addition, how learned gender structures influence the interactions. In the analysis we arrived at the conclusion that both nonverbal communication and gender, to a certain degree, affect the interactions on the employment interview.
