More About the Author

New York Times bestseller Martin Yate is the author of Knock Em Dead - The Ultimate Job Search Guide, now going into its 27th edition. It is the keystone of a 14 book series, with each book addressing a different aspect of job search and modern career management. Collectively published in some 63 foreign language editions, the Knock Em Dead way is unique in its scope and global acceptance in industrialized nations.

With new books and editions added constantly over the last twenty-five years, Mr. Yate's body of work has gradually evolved into a carefully integrated strategy for navigating the twists and turns of a half-century worklife. The Knock Em Dead philosophy offers a practical methodology for achieving professional success, personal fulfillment and financial stability in an uncertain world.

He has been in career management for thirty-five year years, including success as an international technology headhunter, as Director of Human Resources for the technology division of a public company in Silicon Valley, and as Director of Training and Development for a multi-national employment services company.

He has spent twenty-five years on the international lecture circuit coaching corporate recruiters, headhunters, hiring managers, job hunters, career coaches and resume writers on four continents. This is a travel schedule that he is thankfully retiring, thanks to the wonders of webcasts and distance learning technology.

Martin has devoted his life to learning what it takes to achieve a successful professional life. Yet despite encyclopedic knowledge, success and public acclaim, you'll find Martin to be warm, witty and someone who genuinely cares about helping you gain control of your career and change the trajectory of your life. He is considered by many to be the world's thought leader on career management and job search issues.

Martin is married to Angela, who adopted and home-schooled five special-needs children, now grown. Martin adds another two grown children to the mix and he and Angela recently adopted their first rescue dog together. They spend most of their time in the Southeast. They love all types of music and dance every week, from swing to ballroom to country line dancing. They enjoy gardening together, ocean kayaking, biking, chess, backgammon, old movies, thrifting and collecting antiques (Martin is a recovering alcoholic with a substantial collection of Prohibition era cocktail shakers) and ohh.... he is also the world's worst bass player.

Format: Paperback
This book is more than a bit superficial, and anyone who uses these "answers" can be spotted a mile off by professional interviewers. Read Martin's other advice, but pass on his answers. Your answers need to come from the real you -- which is likely to be a far more successful approach than putting someone else's words into your mouth. That's as dangerous an idea as I've ever heard for an interview . . .

I never believed that such books can help someone get a job, but actually this one was very nice to read.

The idea is not to memorize the answer it gave, but actually it builds the base that makes you prepare answers according to your knowledge and previous experiences, make you understand the concept behind those questions

Very well return with easy words to understand. It will sure add something to your job search experience and interview skills.

I tried using Yate's approach in the mid '90s. It nearly prevented me from getting a good job, so unnatural and glib were my interview responses. Based on the negative comments here, reactions are still the same.

I read an older version of this book back in 1995. I interviewed for a highly technical engineering job and to my total surprise about 70% of the three hour interview was covered in this book (I was on my own with the technical questions). I got the job in a research department at a major university.

Highly recommended.

I absolutely love this book. I have purchased the 2002 and 2004 edition. Even though they have some similiar content, they are helpful is preparing for interviews.

I am in law enforcement. The interviews are typically in board from rather than just an individual. So you have to be prepared! These reference guides are on my bookshelf despite the year... the information is still usefull.
