Overview

"The Essential Job Interview Handbook is a realistic guide that gives every job-seeker all the tools, skills, and answers you will need to impress any potential employer and rise above the competition."
-Ron Fry, best-selling author of 101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions

"[This] not only provides you with multiple ways to answer key questions, but also helps you understand why the questions are being asked and what goes into hiring managers' decisions. You will consult this book over and over!"
-John Beauregard, executive director, Eastern CT Workforce Investment Board

Even with a fairly detailed job description or a briefing by a knowledgeable recruiter, job candidates rarely have all the tools they need to ace their interviews. This is one of the reasons why interviews are so harrowing-we have to pay close attention to what we're told, what we're not told, and the many non-verbal signals we receive. In addition, many people who conducts the interviews aren't well-prepared, haven't been trained in interviewing, and often don't even like the process.

The Essential Job Interview Handbook will help job seekers prepare effectively for interviews and become familiar with different types of interview questions and styles of interviews. A unique feature of this book is the multiple answers it provides for each question, rated good, better, and best; with this feature, you'll learn what makes a winning answer and understand the strategy behind it.

Whether you're just finishing school or have been working a long time, The Essential Job Interview Handbook will give you all the powerful tools you need to not just get a job, but to get the right one.

I love the way Jean uses real life examples, and shows the answers in three forms, good, better and best. It is so easy to see how you can use the examples in the book to apply to your own interview.
