Have you ever wondered why you didn't get a job offer after an important interview?

People interviewing for jobs today often fail because they are using yesterday's strategies. They haven't realized that the best employers have changed the way interviews are done, and it now takes a different strategy to succeed. Competency-Based Interviews shows today's candidates a new, more targeted way to prepare for the tough interviews based on the competencies that the most sophisticated employers are looking for.

Competency-Based Interviews shows you how to emphasize the knowledge, skills and abilities that you have and employers need. Most sophisticated U.S. and international employers are using competency-based systems to recruit, interview and select employees. Corporations such as American Express, Anheuser Busch, BP, Coca-Cola, Energizer, Federal Express, IBM, and Pfizer are all looking for specific competencies.

Preparing for a competency-based interview will give you the strategy you need to:

  • Be selected for the most competitive positions.
  • Win the best job at a new organization.
  • Get a great first job or internship.
  • Be chosen for that critical promotion in your current organization.
  • Take control of your career path.
  • Increase your salary.
  • Get more interesting assignments and more interesting work


Competency-Based Interviewswill teach you what you need to master this tough new interview style and give the interviewers the answers that will win you the job.

    Concise and Substantive

    The two words that should describe your resume, interviews and this book! Robin Kessler's book provides a clear and necessary explination of what hiring and HR managers are using to structure thier interviews, and how you should structure your responses and resume accordingly.

    If you're wondering what resumes are being looked at, how you will be interviewed and how to structure your responses this book is a cutting edge resource to prepare you for your interviews.

    After unproductive interviews I bought the book, contacted Ms.Kessler, and had an eye opening experience as to where I was going wrong.
