About the Author

An accomplished attorney, former writer for documentary television, and longtime executive recruiter, Todd Moster has been involved in more job interview scenarios than any decent human being should be expected to endure.

A 1982 graduate of UCLA School of Law, Todd held several jobs in the legal profession, from attorney for the Federal Aviation Administration to deputy district attorney, associate attorney for three different law firms, and finally, as a business and real estate partner for a well-regarded Los Angeles law firm. He has taken more than fifty jury trials to verdict and presided over small claims and traffic cases as a judge pro tem.

Todd left the practice of law fourteen years ago to become an executive recruiter in the legal industry. He worked for two of the largest recruiting companies in the world before founding his own legal search firm, Moster Legal Placement, Inc. (mosterlegal.com), in 2008.

Over the course of his career as a recruiter, Todd has prepared thousands of people for job interviews. He's recruited and placed a variety of legal professionals into jobs with law firms and corporations, including law firm partners and associates, in-house corporate attorneys, paralegals, and legal marketing directors. His company offers a specialized coaching service, Interview BootCamp® (mosterlegal.com/Bootcamp.html), which trains professionals in effective job interview techniques.

Todd has also worked in documentary television, including as a writer for the popular History Channel show "The Great Ships."

A friend of mine found this book, and turned me onto it. Having been involved with a lot of recruiting, this is essential information for ANY job seeker - but done so without all the fluff and high brow approach. It is truly a humorous approach to imparting what a person needs.

How well you prepare and do your job interview is the difference between getting the job or not. Plain and simple. Todd starts out The Underground Guide to Job Interviewing with a chapter on common sense. Truly this is the best place to start this type of book ... although it has been said that "common sense isn't very common". If you follow Todd's advice you will be not only well prepared, you will quite likely totally impress the people doing the interview.

The Tricky Questions chapter is worth the investment in this book alone. Understanding and being prepared to answer questions like: What Would You Say Are Your Greatest Strengths and Weaknesses? and What Do You Like Least about Your Present Job/Profession? are important questions to be ready for. Todd will help you with these too.

And, do you know what to wear (or not to wear) to your job interview? Todd has an entire section on recommendations for your job interview attire.

In a nutshell, this is everything in a nutshell. Todd has covered all the bases and you'll get them in this brilliant and complete book.

I'm convinced when you follow Todd's advice your land that job AND quite likely be well positioned for future advancement in the company.

It is always a pleasant surprise to discover that a friend you have known for many years turns out to have a hidden talent. Todd Moster is such a friend, one with many talents, and now I am delighted to see that along with all his other virtues, he is a witty author as well. His Underground Guide to Job Interviewing is essential reading for anybody who is seeking to improve their employment situation, or knows somebody who is. Todd uses his many years as an attorney and legal job placement specialist to guide the reader through the pitfalls of interviewing for a job, and combines his sage advice with a healthy dose of irreverent humor to present material that will be helpful in any job seeking situation. Do not go into battle unarmed. Read this book first, be prepared, be warned, be advised. Todd is a professional in this field and his book is the best primer I have seen on the subject. It is a fun read, but also imparts crucial information. I highly recommend this book!
