Many people fail to approach interviews strategically, do not have their talking points in hand and are not current with trends in interviewing. How about you?

Master the Interview will accelerate your interview preparation process, keying you up for what to ask yourself beforehand and what may be asked of you in the interview. Read as much as you need, in your areas of need, to grow your comfort level with interviews and master this crucial element of the job search process. The book is not didactic; rather it takes a thematic approach to guide you through creating the right message for your interviews and knowing how to be prepared for whatever may come your way. There are also chapters on special considerations in the process (if you are a non-traditional candidate or have a troubling element in your background) and on how to evaluate multiple offers in hand.

Throughout this book, Segal consistently offers positive, uplifting guidance while adopting an objective yet empathetic tone. A self-directed, interactive manual that should benefit experienced and new job-seekers alike.

- Kirkus Reviews, "The most trusted voice in book reviews since 1993"

"By the time you have an interview for a job you really want, the stakes are high. You are SO close. You don't want to blow it. Ideally, you want to wow them. Yet most professionals are not great at interviews. To be honest, most are terrible, and this includes people who graduated from Harvard Business School and similar places. Why? Because they don't have a game plan and they haven't put in the work required to execute a good one. So they get close to their dream job or even just an okay job, and they don't get it.
The basic premise of Master the Interview is that you don't have to be that person. In this comprehensive book, Anne Marie Segal, a coach, lawyer and writer's writer, sets forth ALL the relevant aspects of interviewing effectively so that you can anticipate them, prepare for them and ultimately master them and get the job you want."

- Michael F. Melcher, Author of The Creative Lawyer

"It's a really terrific and practical book that helps people think about themselves in an organized and disciplined way while prepping for an interview."

- Lisa Maguire, Financial Services Professional

"This book is one of the best job search books today."

- Joshua Waldman, Author of Job Searching with Social Media for Dummies

What is different about this book than other job interview books on the market? Here are five top ways this book is unique:

1) It is a workbook, so you can write and review your own thoughts and learn through doing, guided by expert advice and examples from a host of interviewers and job candidates.

2) It is comprehensive, from networking and informational interviewing to negotiations and noncompetition agreements. With a handy overview in the first chapter on how to use the workbook, you can choose to cover what you need, when you need it.

3) It does not simply give you one so-called "right" answer to any interview situation or run through a list of potential Q&As, but instead it promotes a nuanced and authentic approach.

4) It puts you behind the scenes and into the mind of an interviewer, so you can think more clearly about how you will come across in various contexts (Skype, phone screenings, panel interviews, etc.).

5) It includes four chapters that guide you to build a solid and compelling personal value proposition from the ground-up and tailor your presentation for each target employer.
