Reviews - What do customers think about Savvy Interviewing: How to Ace the Interview & Get the Job?
it's an unfair world Aug 21, 2007
Life is unfair, and as the authors point out over and over, nothing is less fair and more subjective than a job interview. That said, this book can help first-timers avoid many obvious mistakes. It's a humorous, quick read by folks who have "been there, done that."
....disappointing Aug 10, 2007
This book was not at all what I expected from 2 supposedly knowledeable professionals in the field. I learned 2 things that I did not already know out of the entire book, I was disappointed that I wasted my money, not only that, there was a reference to people in the hip hop industry not knowing how to act and I was personally insulted and very surprised that a better analogy and example could not have been used. I would never recommend this book to anyone.
Short and sweet. Jul 16, 2007
The book is okay. Gets to the point and basically says this... "Doesn't matter who you are or what you know, if you're a good interviewer and they like you you'll get the job. Looks are more important than quality and knowledge." HR reps are the dumb gate keepers that feel they are god's in flesh on this earth but actually know nothing and you can't offend them in any way shape or form...
