Any person interviewing for a job needs this book in their bag of tricks. It provides you defense to those idiotic questions like "Where do you want to be in 5 years?" that get asked by the clueless who don't really know what the correct answer to their own question should be.
AND it gives great answers to questions that really are on-point and coaches you in how to effectively and engagingly present your skills and experience during any and all questions nonsense or onpoint. HIGHLY recommend!
The early sections are a good framework to prepare a solid speech on why you're out there looking for a job, what your motivations are, what value you can bring etc.
The list of questions may seem boring but it's clearly an invitation to do your homework. Sit down and practice, practice and practice. This type of work isn't the kind of involvement your hear very frequently and I know very few people who have enough to actually do it.
This book will help you be prepared for pretty much any type of questions, as long as you put down the required practice hours. Just zipping through it once or twice will do you no good. It'll give you the feeling that you're prepared when in fact your not. The only way to make the most of this very good book is to actually practice every question aloud, in front of someone else if you have to.
This is an excellent preparation tool, that you should acquire early in your job search quest, as glancing over it won't unleash the power it contains.
Part I is "Before the Job Interview"-three chapters. I found this part of the book to be most helpful for those that have no professional experience or for those that have no work experience.
Part II is the actual questions that you may be asked. So many questions are for those that have worked in sales, management, accounting, system analysis or IT jobs, marketing, fund raising, R & D, those that have customers or clients, HR professionals and and other positions that require decision making for others or require one to be innovative (such as IT).
The types of jobs that I have had did not require me to make decisions for others or to be creative. So for me, the answers given do not help me. To give an example-When I tryed to show some leadership in my past jobs (like manufacturing) I was told to keep quiet and do what I was told to do. (I used to work in manufacturing in the early to mid '90's). I also have Asperger Syndrome, so the book does not address the need for specific examples on how to answer a question if you have "this and that experience" but not "A, B, and C". The author assumes that the readers of this book are all professionals that are between jobs.
Part III of the book is "After the Interview" and is of moderate help to me. As a person that has had only one job as a manager-and that job as a manager was a joke (they did not even provide a name tag for me), do not waste your money on this book.
It was written in 1999 and talks about CD-ROM's as well. If you do get it, make sure it is a used old copy. It is only worth $1 or less. As I said before, Part I is of the most use for those that are non-professionals.
