More About the Author
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
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.
