Julia Levashina

Assistant Professor

 I joined Kent State University in 2008 and completed my Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management at Purdue University in December, 2005. My research has primarily focused on selection. I have a continuing interest in exploring job applicant faking behaviors or intentional response distortions across multiple selection methods, including employment interviews, personality and biodata measures.  My research explores ways to conquer faking and to minimize the opportunity for applicants to fake. I am also interested in exploring employment interviews, including methods for structuring interviews, probing or follow-up questions, and interviewers’ perceptions of applicant impression management behaviors.
