Sample text

As a closing chapter, it brings together many of the different strands of thought underlying the other chapters in the book and it illustrates in a magisterial way how organizational discourse studies and organizational discourse analysis can be combined in discourse research. 1 Introduction In the globalized cities of the Western world, the number of qualified and experienced workers in low-paid insecure jobs is increasing. Minority ethnic groups are disproportionately represented in these jobs and in unemployment figures generally.

While all identity work is discursive work (Hall, 2000) and is routinely done through narrative (Schiffrin, 1996) as the examples above show, the talk and interaction of the junior management posts required what Blommaert calls ‘delicately organised packages of identity features’ (Blommaert, 2005, p. 128). These packages are part of the stylization of the self in narrative (Ochs and Capps, 2001) to fit the definitions and expectations of the interviewers. Such performances in institutional contexts require a delicate tuning to the criteria and standards of evidence of a particular genre.

Gladston does not always choose to use modes of literate English which reflect Bourdieu’s description. Nor, except fleetingly in line 1, does he use the competence talk of the interviewers’ training for interviews or of the guidelines for competency-based interviewing. However, he successfully reads the institutional requirements of interview talk as they are played out in the social occasion of the face-to-face encounter.
