In particular, it was helpful to hear advice for some of the trickier questions, like being asked about previous negative experiences, to make sure I approached them in a constructive way. I got the job offer 24 hours later! Jan 14, Zachary rated it it was amazing. A little intense - definitely made me consider how I may step up and present myself more powerfully and assertively than I would naturally.
May 17, Alexander Belugin rated it liked it Shelves: career , get-abstract. Decent summary of the job search process, with decent tips for many questions. I was a little annoyed at first because the first couple of cds focused on not the interview, but how to find interviews, different roles of head-hunters, hr, and the like and how to handle these people. While these are important sections of job search too, I couldn't help but feel deceived by the title of the book as they didn't get into the interview questions until much later in the series.
I think most of this book Decent summary of the job search process, with decent tips for many questions. I think most of this book is decent advice. However, many of the tactics and questions in the interview seemed too aggressive. I work as middle-management in an IT development department.
If someone had given the 'strong' type of responses the book recommended, I would have felt that they were too pushy, entitled, or just couldn't see the forest for the trees. They'd probably be hard to work with, eg. I'd assume that they were the type who wanted to force decisions without having the right data, the ones who would make unforced errors out of laziness. This book did provide a good set of generic questions which I could ask people looking for a job at my company.
Overall, a good book. The first two audio CDs were very minimal on useful insight on acing the interview until the last track on 3rd CD. The key point I also heard on CD 3, was to be energized, enthusiastic, and be memorable. Even if the interviewer is laid-back and relaxed, you should not be! This is helpful and learned how to master this years ago because I focused on what I wanted from the job The first two audio CDs were very minimal on useful insight on acing the interview until the last track on 3rd CD.
This is helpful and learned how to master this years ago because I focused on what I wanted from the job, than seeing it from their perspective I also thought about when I had to hire a couple interns as an academic librarian. See what the CDs will cover while driving! I have to write down my top 10 descriptive adjectives, and also been reading and listening to a combination of audiobook s or books on the topic to help before the big day dream job that I want to land.

Mar 01, Dayla rated it it was amazing Shelves: leadership , politics , self-help. I felt so great when I interviewed knowing that I had aced every question, it really didn't matter that I didn't get the job in the end. That part was on them. What I did, thanks to this book, was totally on me, and I was a No kidding.
Of course, the next two interviews I referred back to the book, but in retrospect, I should have found another book, because Right before I interviewed for a job as a kind of "Social Justice" cop for the San Francisco Unified School District, I read this book. Of course, the next two interviews I referred back to the book, but in retrospect, I should have found another book, because the subsequent interviews would have received an 8 and a 2 by me.
So, what I am saying is, that this book only has only enough mojo for the one interview. After that, find a new book. Sep 15, Dana rated it really liked it Shelves: reads.

Tony didn't explain how to approach a job posting that specifically asks for no phone calls.

He addressed the multiple individual interviews in one day scenario, but didn't talk about a panel of interviewers all at once. This practice is VERY common in my field.

If you understand my earlier guidance that you are always selling yourself and that you have nothing until you have an offer , answering interview questions will be easy.
