Overview


The interview is often the most important step in job hunting, and solid preparation often spells the difference between a job offer and a friendly good-bye handshake. This book--each page in the form of a Q & A flashcard--offers ideal preparation for that big interview. Questions likely to be asked by an interviewer are printed on one side, with proven answers printed on the reverse. The book is designed so that pages can be pulled out, selected and shuffled according to need, and used as flashcards for practice. Interviewers are notorious for asking a wide range of questions, and this book covers virtually all of them, with 200 Q & A cards that fall into a variety of categories. For instance --

  • Work and Educations questions (What have you done?): Why did you leave your last job? What did you like most about your last job? What did you like least about it? Have you ever been fired? What is your management style? and many more . . .
  • Skills and Competencies questions (What can you do?): Describe a challenging work issue you had to face. How do you handle an angry employee? and many more . . .
  • Personality/Goals questions (Who are you?): What makes you a good team member? Where do you see yourself five years from now? and many more . . .
  • Behavioral/Situational questions (Can you tell a story?): Tell me about a time when you had to juggle priorities to meet a deadline, and many more . . .
  • Job Fit questions (Are you a match?): How would you describe your ideal work environment? What aspects of the job will you like least? and many more . . .
  • Torture/Trick questions (Can you take the heat?): Why should we hire you for this position? What do you expect your starting salary to be? How do I rate as an interviewer? . . . The reverse side of each card tells why the question is asked, presents sample responses, and allows space to customize an answer. Here is an unusual and effective job-hunting tool that will be valued by job applicants, career coaches/counselors, and college placement offices.

    When I first picked up this book, I thought that it wouldn't be good solely for the reason that it is flashcard style but after reading it - it made a huge difference in the interview process. It tells you why the interviewer is doing certain things and why they're asking certain questions and it gives you answers that you can spin around to fit your circumstances. I really do recommend this book and I've recommended it to anyone of my friends who need a job. Its a book thats good to have around just in case you're looking for another job.
