If you get no value out of this book, and it doesn't improve your interviews - RETURN FOR A FULL REFUND* I AM THAT CONFIDENT ABOUT THE VALUE OF MY EXPERIENCE.
Don't take my word for it - read the real stories of how people landed their dream job with this information.
[2018 Review - UNEDITED] Get it.
If you're in HR, an executive involved in hiring decisions, or someone looking for a job or even a promotion - get this book.
I've read the 300+-pages-books Tuckerton refers to in the introduction. If you already know what makes a great contributor to any team or organization this is a lifesaver when it comes to getting a job, or hiring a new employee. Why? It's easy to make these tiny mistakes in an interview giving the wrong impression of yourself. It's not faking it, it's simply giving an accurate view of yourself. As for when hiring, Tuckerton gives examples of insightful questions that focus on BALANCE in a person. Most high-performing individuals aren't well-rounded, that's why they are high-performing, however, everyone needs to learn to manage behavior that gets in our way to perform at the highest possible level in a social setting.
Great value, given both time and money invested reading this book.

You're qualified for the job - it should be yours. Let me show you what goes through the head of the manager so you can use it to get that job offer.
In 15 minutes or less you can transform how you interview using a highly condensed set of recommendations in this book. Whether you are seeking an entry level or an experienced management position these behind the scenes insights will give you the edge. I see "bad" behaviors across all levels of interviews, without candidates even being aware of what they are doing that prevents them from being hired. You don't need to memorize 101 interview questions and answers. You need actual experiences from the other side of the table to guide you.
˃˃˃ Listen to Hiring Managers
Is the book you're reading now written by the person who decides to hire you, or by someone else involved in the process such as a recruiter or human resources role? If so their guidance may get you an interview, but won't give you insight into what goes through the manager's head when you aren't hired for the job.

"I have never taken the time to write a review for a book, but I felt compelled to share my experience with the author and other job seekers...I knew this was an area where I needed some guidance. Russell Tuckerton gives excellent guidance. He has sat through hundreds of interviews as the interviewer and has seen every mistake that a job candidate could make. He shares what those mistakes are and why they are mistakes. At 45 pages, his insight is both comprehensive and concise." - Verified Amazon Review (who landed the job)
"I work in a career center and there are points made in this book that other books of much longer length and very pricey just don't seem to touch on. This should be in everyone's library to read at least a few days before the interview so you can really digest some of the wisdom that the author is shares." - Nathan Mercer, Career Center Advisor
"Not a word is wasted on fluff. The book only presents very clear directions, explanations, and examples. I saw it as a magician revealing the secrets of the craft. I honestly attribute the book to helping me land my new job as it formed the foundation for my interview preparation work." - Patricia Diaz, Successful Job Seeker
From the Author
Memorizing 100's of questions and answers is not optimal - in fact it makes you come across as a robot, leads to you being flustered, and the entire interview becomes all about how well you memorize facts.
I value each and every review that is left on my book and emails sent to me from my web site - your feedback provides the context for me to address challenges your are facing in my future books and articles on my blog.
I know you will find my extensive experiences from the other side of the desk helpful, and look forward to hearing about your success.

I knew this was an area where I needed some guidance. Russell Tuckerton gives excellent guidance. He has sat through hundreds of interviews as the interviewer and has seen every mistake that a job candidate could make. He shares what those mistakes are and why they are mistakes. At 45 pages, his insight is both comprehensive and concise.
I cannot stress enough how much this book helped me. After landing another interview, I bought this book, read it, and applied it. That night, my husband and I did a mock interview using the suggestions Tuckerton gave. I walked into the interview feeling confidant. I followed Tuckerton's advice and gave clear and concise answers. And guess what....I LANDED THE JOB!!
After I was offered the job, the job recruiter said that everyone was "very impressed" by my interviewing skills. Because of this book, I was able to better communicate my skills and assets.
So listen, if you feel like you are sabotaging yourself during your interview, I get it. I really do. Interviews are a hard game to play (especially for the unprepared.) However, Tuckerton's book helps you see through the eyes of the interviewer and it helps you walk into your interview prepared. I cannot stress how essential this book was to me in my success.
Please do buy this book and spread the word. Every job seeker needs to read this book.
Some points that I really like - "This is about what you can do for my team and my company." Sounds simple, right? But how many times do people go on and on about what they are looking for in a company or what their needs are. The hiring manager doesn't want to hear your problems - they want to hear the reasons why you should be chosen over everyone else.
The other thing that hits home is the point that the "interview starts when you get out of your car." Treating the receptionist in an unprofessional manner might doom you before you even start!
The bulk of the book covers a few different questions with examples of good responses, poor responses, and what to do if you having something negative in your past that needs to be addressed. This is done for each question!!
One of the best sections is the insight as to "Why" the question is being asked in the first place.
Tuckerton gives sage advice and really tries to change the paradigm of the reader. You need to think like a hiring manager when you go for an interview, not an interviewee!
Thank you very much for this wonderful resource!
