"The excellent book... includes a wealth of suggestions on how to walk out of an interview with a best offer." -Joyce Lain Kennedy, syndicated career columnist
At some point, most people have been caught off guard by tough interview questions. This book helps readers take charge of the situation! In Acing the Interview, the employment expert Dr. Phil called “the best of the best” gives job seekers candid advice for answering even the most unexpected questions, including:
You really don’t have as much experience as we would like—why should we hire you? • How many hours in your previous jobs did you have to work each week to get everything done? • What do you consider most valuable—a high salary, job recognition, or advancement?
The book also arms readers with questions to ask prospective employers that could prevent their making a big job mistake:
What would you say are the worst parts of this job? • What are the major problems facing the company and this department? • Why aren't you promoting from within?
Taking readers through the entire process, from the initial interview to evaluating a job offer, and even into salary negotiation, Acing the Interview is a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners guide to interview success.
Make the calls, follow the schedule, say it this way, leave this out, follow up this way, get the job.
Here, he lists more than 450 typical job interview questions and suggested answers. getAbstract recommends his savvy, comprehensive and helpful book.
The advice itself in the book seems good, but when the first 13 pages have 6 typos in them it is hard to take the author seriously.

Mr. Beshara seems to have done very little writing for this book as opposed to appropriating large swaths of statistics from government studies. I got nothing from this book.Published 16 months ago by Ted L. Penberthy
