I've been on many interviews over the years and failed miserably on some due to a lack of foresight and preparation. I really needed a book like this because there was so much that I was overlooking and now I can see exactly where I went wrong. I will study this book and prepare for my interviews accordingly. I would like to point out that the questions in the book and answers are not to be taken literally. Don't answer all interview questions by memorizing the answers given in this book. Use them only as guidelines to make up variations of the same questions and consider the suggested answers and use your best judgement.
The salary tips are great, as is the section on questions to ask the interviewer. On my last interview, my now-boss kept saying how impressed she was with my "intelligent questions."
Overall, this book is easy to read, interesting and helpful. It's a keeper.
The interview questions that Robin poses are ones that I have heard over and over again in interviews. I like the fact that she doesn't include "the top 1001 interview questions", and includes the ones which you are most likely to hear (in an order you would be likely to hear them as well). Some of Robin's answers to these questions were great - particularly the questions which are geared towards getting you to bad mouth a former boss and/or co-worker. I'm always very uncomfortable with those types of questions, and while the answers presented in the book are admittedly ways of making you appear aloof to the heart of the question... they do help you side-step a situation where you might otherwise be forced into speaking poorly of others, which isn't something you want to do during an interview. Having said that, there were some questions to which Robin's answers made me laugh out loud. You might score some points for creativity with a prospective boss though if you take all of her suggestions! :D Anyway, these days a lot of people in charge of hiring get into all of that "warm and fuzzy" stuff, and they might actually like an answer like the one below... "One of my faults is that I loose track of time and work late... blah blah blah" ha... I love it.
The 60 second sell, the 5 point agenda... both are very good tips. This aspect of the book is actually based on a common public relations strategy where you keep repeating your key points and incorporate them into every answer you give and every sentence that comes out of your mouth.Read more ›
