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.

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.

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.

I found this book while looking for answers to my unemployment dilemma. In the past 6 years, I have had 5 different jobs for varying reasons (being riffed, resigning due to distance from home or for ethical purposes, or for better opportunities). Nothing seemed to be working in terms of landing a career (not just a day-job). We were struggling financially and things needed to turn around. That’s when I found this “Knock ‘em Dead” book and I absolutely loved it. While I had a lot of experience in the job interview category, I was having trouble turning that into the job offer that I so desperately needed. Once I read this book, I realized that a number of the things in the book that they tell you not to do I was putting out there on interviews. I really took their advice to heart and practiced my interviewing skills. With the ideas in my conscious mind about what how I needed to sell myself, I landed the very next job interview I went on. Now I have a great job that I am truly happy with, and I was even able to negotiate some amazing benefits on top of that. I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I didn’t commit to working on myself with the help of this book. I’m not saying that it’s easy, but anything worth doing is worth doing right. Thank you for the amazing advice!

The knock 'em Dead series were recommended to me by several head hunters. After reading the book I was better prepared for my interviews and less stressed; definitively a game changer. I highly recommend this book and the series from Martin Yate.
