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