  • A formal discussion in which an individual is asked to provide information about a specific topic. The interviewer is the person leading the meeting, and the interviewee is the individual answering the questions. There are two main types of interviews: (1) structured and (2) unstructured. Structured interviews follow very specific guidelines, with detailed questions, a predetermined ordering of issues to be addressed, and a standard format that is applied uniformly to all interviewees. In contrast, unstructured interviews do not have a predetermined format or detailed questions but rather focus on more general issues. While unstructured interviews are not as precise as structured interviews, the unstructured format often provides more in-depth information about the topic at hand.
