Editorial Reviews


"I have been job hunting and interviewing for over a year. I had 2 really good interviews scheduled last month and really needed an offer. I purchased 15 Minutes To a Better Interview on my Kindle and I GOT AN OFFER FROM EACH EMPLOYER! Thank you Russell Tuckerton. I couldn't have done it without you!." - ChrisF, Unsolicited Discussion Forum Post
"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

I wrote this book to help people - plain and simple. After hiring hundreds of people throughout my career, and rejecting hundreds more after an interview, I wanted to concisely demonstrate how to think about an interview. It is critically important that you come in prepared and are able to understand the intent behind each question so you can frame your answer around what the interviewer is looking for.
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.

Russell Tuckerton is the pen name used by a highly successful corporate executive in the technology industry.

With a BS in Computer Engineering from Ohio State University, and a Masters of Science from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Russell has leveraged his education to catapult his career, reaching a Vice President position at the age of 32.

Now in his late 40s, Russell has managed projects with budgets up to 50 million dollars, and has honed his executive, people management, and hiring skills at companies such as Microsoft, Intuit, Motorola, as well as being on the ground floor of 3 startups [the first of which was in college]. He is very experienced in both large corporate environments as well as small startup companies.

Russell has interviewed hundreds of candidates, hired and managed hundreds more, and has seen everything possible in an interview for both entry level and director level positions. Frequently interviewed by leading magazines, he emphasizes understanding why a question is being asked versus memorizing countless questions and answers. He hires people who are genuine, confident, team players, and who demonstrate passion and knowledge about his company and the role he has open. He has mentored dozens of individuals across multiple companies and enjoyed watching them grow both personally and professionally.

After living in Chicago, Seattle, and Los Angeles for his career, he has chosen to call Denver, CO home, where he lives with his wife and two children.

You can learn more about Russell, and read his latest observations and management insights on his career blog at
