Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a really excellent resource when I had to prepare for a very challenging series of interviews (32 interviews over 3 trips of two days each). Not least it allows you to anticipate nearly all conceivable questions and gives you an invaluable flexible structure for a "tell me about yourself" answer.

I don't remember if it had the extremely powerful "hook" question that interviewees should ask "If I was selected what would you like to see me doing in six months" which I recommend if you really want the job. A strange danger about this book and the hook question is that you may be so wanted that you will be flattered into taking a job that may not be the best fit!

I like the way this book introduces a consultative selling approach into the interviewing process. It gave me a lot more confidence that I could finesse job interviews.
There is a new (third edition) of this book out now that addresses some of the ways in which the interviewing process is changing in order to adapt to a better economy.

I currently work for a Fortune 500 company in training. We are using this book as a reference in preparing our entry level personnel to interview internally for next level positions. Behavior based questioning is very popular right now and this book is excellent. Also has some good tips on salary negotiation,headhunters,follow-up, etc.

This book is super-practical and an absolute must for college grads and those who may have been out of the Interview process for a while.
This book is acually used by large company recruiters who ask the EXACT same questions as contained within the text.....there's no reason to be unprepared anymore!
