Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The 20 worst questions as rated by interviewees also happen to be the 20 favorite questions of interviewers. What these 20 questions are and why they are bad or how to handle them, depending on which side of the table you are on, are among this book's many insights. Kanter, a consultant to law firms and investment banks on hiring and related issues, offers an examination of the interview process that links interviewer and interviewee with wisdom for both. He covers the process from preparation for the interview to the offer and closing, listing the questions an interviewer as well as the interviewee should ask.
