5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book to help you prepare for a job interview January 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In "How To answer Interview Questions", Peggy McKee gives us a wealth of useful and practical suggestions. I get the distinct feeling that the author is writing from personal experience and the many insights are her own. She also includes unusual questions sometimes asked at interviews that could catch you off guard. Peggy takes the time needed to explain each answer and often provides alternative answers depending on your situation. The questions are real and the answers are well thought out and insightful. While the number of questions at first may seem daunting, the material is easy to understand and assimilate thanks to the concise detailed explanations and numerous examples. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone preparing for a job interview no matter what branch or job title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great prep for interviews January 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've recently decided to leave my job and have some interviews coming up soon. I haven't changed jobs in 6 years so need to refresh my interview skills. I purchased this book as it seemed different to the other books about job interviews that I could find.

The book itself offers very practical advice for how to answer common interview questions. This includes best-practice answers to give to interview questions. Even if you are asked questions that are not in the book in an interview, the analysis that the author offers around each question will help you think about how to approach other types of questions. The questions that are analysed in the book range from the very common to some that are quite abstract!

Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this book as a very useful tool in preparing for job interviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Piece I have ever Read December 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What can I say but wow, Peggy McKee has not only put a lot of thought and professionalism in this book but it is literally a step by step instruction on how to go through today's modern day interview process. It used to be that anyone who had a particular skill set or talent could walk into any job interview with confidence in knowing that they could get that position and get a answer that day and land the position, this is no longer the case in today's market place or arena.

If you aren't prepared to satisfy the hiring manager's questions when going through that interview there is always that possibility that the person in front of you or behind you will have the answers that the manager is looking for, this book eliminates that fear, if you go into that interview with the answers that this book teaches you, you not only go in with a confidence that you didn't have before but the fear and the pressure isn't present like it would be if you haven't read the how to answer interview questions going in on the blind side, Peggy McKee is the ultimate professional and knows what she is talking about it seems to me that while writing this book she took the prospective of sitting in the interview chair as we all so often do in the hopes of impressing the hiring manager enough to land that position and in my mind nailed that perspective for us all to benefit from her expertise and experience.

I will be recommending this book to all my friends and family members who will be finding themselves in that interview chair well prepared with confidence and no fear thanks to Peggy McKee and this book.

If you've ever been on a job interview, you know that the interviewer almost always asks questions that you have no answer for, and all you can do is to try to come up with something at the moment. This ebook has answers to 101 of those challenging questions with recommendations on what to say. Most of all, the author explains WHY the interviewer is asking a particular question, which also helps form an answer.

If you're going on a job interview, read this ebook first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trying to get a job? You NEED this!! March 12, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh how I wish I had read this years ago. I was hoping it would be good but I never imagined it could be this good. I don't usually write reviews but the information in this book is so awesome and so helpful. Peggy McKee can help anyone get a better job. I never really prepared for an interview before, never heard of a brag book, a 30-60-90 day plan, didn't know how to handle the "How much money question" or most of the questions in the book!

After reading "How To Answer Interview Questions" I now know why I didn't get a job I really wanted and it's painfully obvious that if I had read it before that interview that job would have been mine.

Buy it, read it, what you learn from it will help you in so many ways. Don't wait until you're ready to go on a job interview. There's information in it that you need now. Hint: you need to know what a brag book is now so you can start getting yours together.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly organized writing with spellcheck mistakes evident December 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You can tell that the amatuer author speed-wrote the book over night while pumped on coffee or cocaine, without consultimg an editor.There are numerous spelling errors that were corrected by spellchecker to mean nonsense words in the context and often sentences end in mid-stream with no conclusion. Questions are not organized by topic, merely thrown up in a stream of consciousness . Value of the boOk would be better had questions been organized by topic, instead of being randomly listed. No good detailed examples or detailed sample stories are provided as answers to the questions. The author continuously pushes her 30-60-90 day plan without providing any sort of detailed sample of it for you to consult. The only value is that questions are listed and some employer thinking is explained behind them and what mindset you have to be in to respond to the uestions. But I guess for 99c I should not expect quality .
