This little book is laid out in a very pleasant, easy way to read. If you are tired of interviews, this book will perk you up, and get you going again. It feels like Mary Greenwood is your attorney, right by your side, right on your side, helping you get through another interview without crying or feeling like you'll never get the job. She gives you 43 Rules so that when you go into your interview, you are ready and confident. Like Rule 22: Don't assume the interviewer has read your resume. We might always think the interviewer must have read our hard-earned resume. We would be shocked that they had not. No, if we read this great little book, we will be forwarned of the fact that people just might not have had time to read it. Rule 16 says: learn the buzz words. There is a language that goes with any job. You should try to learn it before you go in. Attorneys, accountants and engineers use words particular to their fields. The glossary and appendix are very helpful. Mostly, this book is laid out very well, and is friendly to the eye, with lots of white space between ideas and rules, so that it doesn't feel overwhelming or threatening, and those are the feelings you just don't need when thinking about being an interviewer of an interviewer, or being interviewed for a job. So, I would highly recommend this book to friends who are out there trying to get a decent job. A great gift! Five Stars, for sure.

Wonderfully written with practical advice in all areas for interviewing! Mary Greenwood,J.D.,LL.M, builds on her years of experience in personnel and as an attorney to create a masterpiece to guide anyone preparing for an interview. I have been an interviewer in several roles--the last two as Superintendent of Schools and as a professor acting as one part of inerview teams.The topics which cover all aspects of preparation are right on target. Questions for the interviewee to ask are very important.Suggested questions are posed for consideration. This is one aspect that is often neglected. The author is correct when she writes that if no questions are asked, or if they are not appropriate, then the job-seeker stands little chance of being hired. Research must be done by the interviewee. Certainly the application is very important, but the interview is the clincher. Reading this book will help anyone prepare for that critical interview.

Format: Paperback
How to Interview Like a Pro offers 43 excellent tips to help job candidates prepare for the daunting task of interviewing for a job. Author Mary Greenwood's background as an Attorney and Human Resource Manager provide an excellent background to offer the reader outstanding insights into steps in the interview process.
The first great lesson a job seeker gains from the book comes right in the table of contents. Greenwood spreads her 43 tips across 7 chapters, the reader realizes that only two and a half chapters deal with time spent in the interview itself. The rest deal with preparation and follow up. Following such ratios is essential to successful interviewing.
The tips are written in clear and concise fashion. Greenwood takes nothing for granted in identifying each minute detail in the interview process a candidate needs to prepare for, make sure to cover during the interview, and consider while evaluating and following up an interview.
Greenwood's legal background allows her to offer a comprehensive outline regarding interviewing and the law. It's one of the best information sources on this topic I've seen. In addition, since she has also written "How to Negotiate Like a Pro," Greenwood provides great advice on ways to hammer out a better compensation package.
Among my favorite tips-Always be in Interview Mode (#8); Expect the Question You Don't Want to Answer (#26) and Determine Any Company Red Flags (#31).
As a Career Advisor, I constantly remind people from all walks of life that job tenures continue to shorten and we will all need to look for jobs more frequently than we want. This makes developing strong interviewing skills more critical. "How to Interview Like a Pro" provides a great long term resource for this.

I realize that in Europe the systems and procedures around job applications might be different than in the U.S., but all applicants must eventually go for the job interview and I could not find any really appropriate books from European experts on this matter. A few adjustments must be made to be useful in a European style of interview - and this can be different whether you are in Holland, Germany or France - but all in all it is a very useful book for someone who is preparing for serious job interviews.

MY THOUGHTS:

"Rule 8. Be in interview mode all the time.

...An employer told me about an applicant who wore bedroom slippers and short shorts while picking up an application. Often the person you get the application from is the same person who will interview you. If you are wearing bedroom slippers and shorts, the employer does not need to read the application to decide you are not employee material."

For such a slender volume, this book is chocked full of fabulously pertinent advice for the job seeker. It is delivered in a common sense manner and each rule is demonstrated by a concise example as it takes you through all the stages before, during and after the job interview.

Even after having worked in Human Resources for a short stint myself, I still learned a thing or three. I wasn't even half-way through the protected classes section when I realized that I had been hoodwinked and bamboozled for most of my working career; but I must admit that I had no one to blame for that but myself. A wise person once said that we perish from a lack of knowledge.

So what's my point? You've got to have a plan. Studies show that those who end up achieving their goals are those who have a written plan. If you're looking for a job, your plan should be to ensure that you are as qualified as possible before you arrive for the interview. Your plan should entail How to Interview Like a Pro-an advice, workbook and reference toolkit all-in-one.

MY RATING:

4-1/2 out of 5 Stars

MY RECOMMENDATION:

This award winning book is suitable to thoroughly equip and empower the beginner as well as the seasoned job seeker with the legal knowledge, negotiating strategies, and basic interview etiquette necessary to shine.
