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.
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.Read more ›
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.
