In his Introduction Peter stands tall and shares the following: ‘If you remain focused during an interview and during your preparations: The interviewer will see you take the interview seriously (it would give a bad impression if you appeared overly relaxed). You will be able to pay attention to not only what the interviewer says but also to his body language. If you are answering a question and notice the interviewer would like to stop you to clarify a point, you will notice this (as opposed to going on talking and not being aware of his intentions). You won't lose track of what is being said during the interview. This is important so that at the end of the interview you won't ask a question about a point the interviewer already mentioned before (unless it is to clarify what he said). Likewise, if you ask clarifying or follow-up questions related to what the interviewer said during the interview, it shows you are paying attention (i.e. you are focused) and are keen on getting the job.
You remember better the answers to questions you prepared for the interview (as opposed to letting your mind drift). You optimize the time you have to prepare for an interview by investing time only in activities which are crucial. Overall, you will come across as someone who is committed to and serious about getting the job. This book is as much about what to do as it is about what not to do during an interview.’
Though the book is short in length it is long on information, outlining all the steps that must be taken to assure a successful job interview, beginning with research/preparation invaluable to be ready for the interview: get to know the background and history of the business and position you wish to secure, how to present yourself physically and psychologically for the interview, remaining focused with precise questions that prove your ‘homework’ about the position, how to respond to questions during and interview (again maintaining focus and not rambling off topic), ways to impress the reviewer in appearance and demeanor (firm handshake/eye contact etc), areas to avoid, the importance of remembering your first interview if a subsequent additional interview for the position follows, how to summarize your interview both at the termination of the interview and after the interview in retrospect – in other words, learn form the interview experience on every level, and the importance of interview followup.
It is all here in very accessible form, offered in a concise and impressively written manner. This is a must for anyone preparing for an interview, no matter on what level or for what job. Grady Harp, June 18
I like the fact that the author have a decent amount of experience in this field, and also glad that he's pretty much up-to-date on what currently goes on in the world of job interviews. This makes the book a credible source, something that gives solutions that has been proven to work.
Focused Job Interviews should be read by those who need tips as well as ideas on how to get hired during an interview. I just wished we've had this sooner.
I put his name in quotes because that actually isn't his name - but you might know it if he told you. He has MANY years of experience in interviews, so you know that what he has to say is important. Usually when I see that someone has 25 years of experience in interviewing, I don't think it is worthwhile because interviewing has changed so much in the last decade - but I was happy to see that he focused heavily on today's interview.
There are so many tips in here that I can't even pick a favorite - definitely pick this up if you are someone who is interviewing for jobs or you do the interviewing.
I find this book really interesting as it gives you tips on how to perform on a job interview so that you get the job. The tips it gives and the information it provides is very good and anyone can apply them.
I have never read a book like this before. Good information, interesting and well written; I would certainly recommend everyone, who is looking for a job, reading Focused Job Interviews.
