About 2 weeks ago, I found this book by accident. I downloaded it on Monday night, read it Tuesday and Wednesday, and went on a job interview (applying the advice from the book) on Thursday AM during the interview. I got a call on Friday afternoon that I had got the job!
This book is amazing! I truly believe that it will help you to find your dream job. Don't give up -- keep looking and in the meantime read this book! Thank you Robin for writing this book!
I ended up going to my interview and succeeded in making it to the second round of interviews, which will be held next week. I at least now have one full week to gather more information than I did for this past one. I also love that the book is simple and not filled with jargon.
This one gets my highest possible recommendation.
In a nutshell, this book tells us that interviewers are bored during interviews. In my words, not the Robin Ryan's, the point of this book is that when you're interviewing for a position, you should be a human commercial. The author explains in detail how to create this short commercial, and then you've got to stick to it.
This is not much different than election candidates staying on message no matter what questions they're asked. The candidate has a very saleable message memorized and then repeats it a lot. Ryan advises developing 5 selling points for your interview. By sticking to the script, it's likely that the interviewer will remember the saleable message.
What I like most of the author's approach is that it provides a methodology for handling lots of weird questions that are asked during an interview. For example, "Tell me about yourself, Citizen John." This is a question just to get the interviewee talking. Instead of rambling about irrelevant things, the proper response according to Ryan is to launch into the preprepared 5 selling points. It's as if the question was really, "Can you tell me again your 5 selling points?"
I recommend this book. The method provided seems sound. It works for election candidates. It can minimally be used whenever there is uncertainty over how to respond to just about anything in an interview. I prefer the CD version because this is the kind of book I want to listen to several times, and it's well-narrated.
