Book Description

If you are like 99.9% of all other professionals, you have less experience turning job interviews into job offers than you have with any other essential professional skill. Knock ’em Dead Job Interview will turn this weakness into strength, giving you a set of invaluable skills that you will still be using to sustain your professional growth and stability throughout the balance of your career. You’ll learn how to prepare for job interviews and pick up tips for answering over 300 of the most frequently asked interview questions, including behavioral questions. You won’t get canned answers, but rather an explanation of the thinking behind each question, and a preparation methodology that ensures you’ll always know how best to answer truthfully and effectively. With answers to hundreds of questions, every page is packed with tips and tactics that will work for you at any job interview. You’ll learn how to prepare psychologically for interviews, how to turn phone interviews into face-to-face interviews, and how to dress for success on the big day. You’ll learn how to follow up effectively and negotiate the best possible job offers, and you’ll also get 100 questions to ask that help you evaluate both the job offer and your potential new boss. With no filler and never a word wasted, Knock ’em Dead Job Interview shows you how to turn job interviews into job offers and paychecks, increasing your professional success and financial stability. This is advice that you’ll value for a lifetime, could you use it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Dead On Advice for Successful Inteviews December 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought and absorbed Knock 'em Dead over a dozen years ago and found it to be excellent guide for interviewing success back then, and a timeless resource over the years. Now later in my career and wanting to focus in on interviewing skills, I purchased the Kindle edition of Knock 'em Dead Job Interview and found it to be the refresher course that I was looking for.

The start of the book does a very nice job of setting the stage by helping the reader get inside the head of the interviewer, and understand secrets to interview success. It then takes the reader through the interview stages, starting with the phone interview with the familiar presentation of common (and not so common) interview questions with smart ideas and examples on how to attack them. Much of the book will be familiar to readers of previous editions of the Knock 'em Dead books, however this one provides more details on the interview topics and presents the material in a new way.

I find the book very readable and am now more confidently prepared for future interviews inside or outside my company.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expectations February 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was looking a for a book that contained questions that I would expect on an interview and supposed answers that would "wow" an interviewer. This book is for new college or high-school graduates looking for a job--or for someone who is returning to the job market after being away for awhile. This book is not for the high-end career seekers who will face behavioral and business strategy questions in an interview.
The book provides well-known and general advice and what to do on an interview: dress professionally, arrive early, firm handshake, maintain eye contact, follow-up, etc. What about the down and dirty details of what to say for your pitch? For certain types of questions? What to include in the follow-up email?
I really wanted to "Knock 'em Dead" but with this book, readers will learn how to put on their boxing gloves--that's about it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sales Interview Questions and Answers! August 16, 2014
Format:Paperback
Are you hunting for sales job interview questions and answers?

Get ready then, because I have good news for you. Meaning, if you're in a rush, and tight on time, then all you really need is the first chapter (it's named "The Five Secrets Behind Every Hiring Decision"). Get your mind wrapped around that, and the rest of the interview mystery all jumps into place. Really!

But look, even if you have to read that chapter twice [like I did] to finally get into sync with Yate's thoughts, it's WELL worth the time. His insider info on hiring manager thought process on "suitability", problems solving, and the other principles you'll learn about, give the framework you MUST know to properly arrange your experiences and tackle sales interview questions.

That was the biggest key for me (and that was just chapter 1, which in my mind is MORE THAN worth the price of the book right there!). It opened up the focus and clarity I needed on how to sell my skills & successes in ways that the hiring manager needed to hear to put me onto the "hire" list.

The second biggest Ah-Ha revelation hit me in chapter 4. Cracking the telepohnic interview questions [and all the anxiety wrapped up in it] has been CRITICAL for me, because those screener calls always used to completely panic me since I had no body language to read, only a voice to try to decode what was really being asked!

Confession I'll make here is that the turning point was this little two page section, "Conversation Is A Two Way Street" ...which sounds SUPER-obvious now... but really opened my mind and leveled the playing field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Interview Book February 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As with most books, there is always a bit of fluff before you get to the meat, however, the author minimizes it and makes it as useful as possible. The "meat" is filet mignon! If you read this book, study it, practice it, not just skim through it, you will do great in most any interview!
