Review

This book provides job seekers with the confidence to know they can stand out from the crowd and get the interview. --Impact Publications

"...To make sure you are maximizing your complete potential, having a book like [Get the Interview Every Time] in your hands before you start the process will be a great benefit to help increase your chances enormously." --Ken Inlow http://www.toolsforsuccess.com

A well-written and comprehensive guide to the whole process, from creating your resume and cover letter through interviewing, accepting an offer and even a few strategies for getting a good start in your new position. What makes this book different is that it's not just one person's opinion: the text is based on surveys sent at three different times to high-level people in successful companies. You're getting real advice and opinions from multiple hiring managers in many different industries.

--Hillary, Goodreads


Most candidates begin to look alike. That's where a cover letter can really help; you can use it as an opportunity to really grab their attention make yourself stand out from the crowd. I've outlined some strategies for making a cover letter work for you. For more, check out Brenda Greene's book, "Get the Interview Every Time,"  which is based on interviews with HR directors for Fortune 500 companies.   -- Bob Rosner, "Walking Wounded," ABC News

Though there are many books written on this subject, this one was clearly the best I have read. It is clear, precise, and organized in a way that gets right down to business (no pun intended). In fact, I have just graduated from business school with several job prospects thanks to the good advice in this book. It will always stay on my shelf as a great reference source.

I used this book to help me revamp my resume. It's a tough job market, and I'm still looking for the right job for me, but I am getting interviews and I've been told that my resume is well done. I basically followed the sample resumes in Get the Interview Every Time to re-do my own resume and I've been getting good results.

This book covers what hiring managers want and expect from job applicants and shows how to brush up on resume writing. It also helps prepare for the interview process and includes plenty of sample resumes. In the current economic environment, I expect it will become the bible for many job seekers.

I have employees in every state from New York to Norfolk VA, an office in Flordia, two in Colorado and three in Germany. I really recommend this book to job seekers. I loved it. I read a great deal while traveling but only write review that are five stars as I don't have time for anythingless. This book I found to be very well put together, and researched, there might have been a few bumps or places I might have said maybe, but in general and as a whole, I love it and will recommend it to others. I am a member of the Aspen Book Club in Colorado, the Brooklyn Hatters Book Club, "The Manhattan Book club" the European book club and the Linnenbach Readers (Book) club. I have to say that I am on the move, on the road so often that read has become an outlet and using Amazons reader a great way to reduce the hours, 5 cheers to this author, I am very happy with this book and will recommend it to others.

I don't remember purchasing this either. But at least this one is slightly more useful to me than the other book I somehow received/purchased related to college admission. My purchase date shows I got that book... in... college... Loki, you crafty devil, you.

This is a HUGE book (6000 some pages on the kindle). It's got chapters on everything from the cover letter to what to do once you have a job. I am still reading it, but so far it has been a lot of sharing results from a survey of Fortune 500 hiring executives. It's nice to get an inside view of the hiring process, and is enjoyable and easy to read. On the kindle, I wish there was an table of contents to easily access chapters. Also, the resumes appear in an awkward format (this isn't the book's fault, rather something to do with the way kindle displays things), so you don't get a full idea of what the resume actually looks like on paper.
