Having worked closely with job seekers of all nationalities and disciplines it continues to fascinate me that otherwise bright people don't put the work in to prepare themselves for the jobs market in general and job interviews in particular. This is why an awful lot of good people get rejected and (exaggerating to make the point) a lot of awful people get hired. Admittedly, they are not well served by much of the literature on the subject and this is my attempt to redress the balance. My unique but simple approach has worked well for my clients and, providing you do your prep, it will work well for you too.

I just read Winning at Interviews by Alan Jones and found this book, Negotiate your Salary to be a great companion book to that one - I would suggest reading Winning at Interviews first and as you get closer to the hiring process start reading Negotiate your Salary. Learn what you must do in this new economy to be competitive but not go overboard, what to expect, what to ask for and how to get it. You have to speak up for yourself, you can only get paid as much as you ask for - give examples and reasons why you are worth what you are asking and be sure to follow through. Going above and beyond goes a long way especially when the competition is breathing down your neck to try and get that same job and possibly for less money!

I thought this might be as dry as dust but Alan Jones has come up with a great read which amuses and makes you think. The case studies tie it all together neatly and really show the mistakes that I've made myself. Having the confidence to put it into practice is another thing but if this book doesn't help you do it then nothing will. Highly recommended.
