Activities relevant to the proposed research group
Caroline Lipovsky has published extensively on self-presentation and identity in job interviews, analysing the linguistic resources whereby job applicants construct their professional identity, demonstrate their expertise, and build co-membership with their interviewers. She is currently investigating how job applicants construct their professional identity through their CVs in their endeavour to obtain a job interview.
Caroline has also collaborated with Ahmar Mahboob, exploring issues of being a native or non-native speaker of English in the context of the English language teaching profession.
