More About the Author

Russell Tuckerton is the pen name used by a highly successful corporate executive in the technology industry.

With a BS in Computer Engineering from Ohio State University, and a Masters of Science from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Russell has leveraged his education to catapult his career, reaching a Vice President position at the age of 32.

Now in his late 40s, Russell has managed projects with budgets up to 50 million dollars, and has honed his executive, people management, and hiring skills at companies such as Microsoft, Intuit, Motorola, as well as being on the ground floor of 3 startups [the first of which was in college]. He is very experienced in both large corporate environments as well as small startup companies.

Russell has interviewed hundreds of candidates, hired and managed hundreds more, and has seen everything possible in an interview for both entry level and director level positions. Frequently interviewed by leading magazines, he emphasizes understanding why a question is being asked versus memorizing countless questions and answers. He hires people who are genuine, confident, team players, and who demonstrate passion and knowledge about his company and the role he has open. He has mentored dozens of individuals across multiple companies and enjoyed watching them grow both personally and professionally.

After living in Chicago, Seattle, and Los Angeles for his career, he has chosen to call Denver, CO home, where he lives with his wife and two children.

You can learn more about Russell, and read his latest observations and management insights on his career blog at Interview-Aid.com

I picked this up when it was available for free. At that price, I'd say this is a very quick (the entire book can be read in about an hour), worthwhile read. I'm not sure that it's worth the $2.99 price tag I see on it now, however. The author brings his past experiences as a hiring manager to the table and covers 7 commonly asked questions that come up in interviews. He explains the purpose of the question; what a good answer should include; examples of bad answers; and how to address potential negative aspects of your past that may relate to the question.

This is all good information, however, here's what could have been added to really improve the book:

* Similar or tangential questions from these 7 root questions -- rarely does an entire interview cover only 7 questions. There are always followups, tangential questions, or related questions (ways in which the question may be re-stated in order to get further information about this aspect of a person's performance or experiences).

* Recommendations on questions the interviewee could ask the interviewer -- I realize the point of this book is to focus on the questions the interviewee should ace, but a very short section outlining some good questions that an interviewee could include (and why) would be advantageous given the theme of the book.

* Some additional specific examples of good answers. The author provides some specific instances of bad answers and gives some general guidance on good answers, but taking these generics and providing a specific example would help illustrate some of the points.

Overall, I gave this two stars. It's not bad, however, it feels incomplete, has some awkward formatting, and seems a bit rushed overall.

This book provided some excellent information on the seven interview questions you must get right in order to get hired, however the formatting needs work - it was justified on both the right and left sides, so the spacing was off, and also the few bulleted lists that the book had were badly formatted, in my opinion - the first line of each bullet point was indented, but subsequent lines were not. Outside of those formatting concerns, this is an excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a job.

I've been the interviewer and the interviewee and feel the information presented is a really good review of tips. A resume might get you an interview but the interview is where you get the job!

While most of the advice was pretty obvious, it is a nice compendium of tips. It nicely shows how to avoid traps in interviews and make the best of your weaknesses.

This is a straight-forward title that doesn’t take that long to read: as someone who has been interviewing people for over 25 years, I really wish most job candidates would read books like this one as it doesn’t only give you the question, the author also gives you a great answer. He also gives you examples of poor answers that could crater your interview, but I will tell you I’ve hears similar answers and always wonder “what were they thinking?” I also ask these same questions when I am conducting an interview.

Finding a good job is hard, and employers are looking for any reason to disqualify a candidate as they are looking for Mr. or Ms. Perfect. Do yourself a favor and read this and other books on interviewing and answering interview questions as the good jobs won’t toss you softball questions to answer. It could be the best 99 cents you’ve spent.

I read this book within 20 min and these are worth a whole seminar on how to handle interview questions. If you master the answers to the seven questions in this book, your success to any job interview is granted.

Why am I saying that? Because at least 5 of the 7 question s will be asked during all job interviews and one of them will be the opening and obviously most important question.

Personally, I did learn insightful information especially with pessimistic attitudes that would turn a dream job into a "no" job situation. One needs to realize that managers are people,too. Confidence in yourself & common sense are the true selling points to help one move on in their career of choice.

I re-read this very short book(let) before I go on interviews. In fact, I was asked one of the questions and would not have thought, beforehand, of this question. I was able to have an answer ready, but not sound canned. Now, I'm in the running for the second interview.
