Out of the morass of the outdated self-help books about the interviewing and job-hunting process, Nick Corcodilos's volume Ask The Headhunter is quickly distinguishing itself as something genuinely new and revolutionary. Not only has his radical approach been tested in the field by such renowned companies as AT&T, Walt Disney World, Microsoft, Delta, Nike, and Bristol-Meyers but it has also been the turning point in the careers of thousands of professional men and women.
Ask The Headhunter is a guide to cutting through the unnecessary nonsense that has begun to take over the modern interview process and turning your interview into a hands-on meeting with a potential employer in which you actually prove your ability to do the job instead of relying on gimmicks. Stop worrying about flashy résumés, what kind of tie to wear, and memorizing the answers to the top ten interview questions, Nick Corcodilos says. Instead, concentrate on showing the employer how well you understand the job and demonstrating that you can do it better than anyone else in line.
In the course of the book, Corcodilos explains the four questions people must ask themselves before heading into an interview; why answering want ads and sending out résumés is useless; what you need to know about an employer's job requirements; and methods for assuming control of an interview and directing it to your advantage. These are a few examples of the information that anybody seeking a first or new job will value greatly.
