Pretty useful book that prepares well for job interview Dec 9, 2006
This is actually an excellent book that acts as a starting point to prepare your interviews.
The early sections are a good framework to prepare a solid speech on why you're out there looking for a job, what your motivations are, what value you can bring etc.
The list of questions may seem boring but it's clearly an invitation to do your homework. Sit down and practice, practice and practice. This type of work isn't the kind of involvement your hear very frequently and I know very few people who have enough to actually do it.
This book will help you be prepared for pretty much any type of questions, as long as you put down the required practice hours. Just zipping through it once or twice will do you no good. It'll give you the feeling that you're prepared when in fact your not. The only way to make the most of this very good book is to actually practice every question aloud, in front of someone else if you have to.
This is an excellent preparation tool, that you should acquire early in your job search quest, as glancing over it won't unleash the power it contains.
Helped get me a new job. Oct 16, 2005
Some of the answers they give are so full of @#%& that no one would believe them but just listening to potential questions gave me a chance to formulate my own answers to interview questions which landed me a job as a Deputy Program Manager with a 20% salary increase. This CD easily paid for itself.
Very Useful May 19, 2005
As an Executive Recruiter, I found this book to be quite helpful. I was able to see the potential in all the questions and not only from an interviewers point of view, but as a candidate. I made a list of "tough" and "my favorite" interview questions and email them to my candidates and clients. This way they are prepared. I also suggest to my candidates that they use the questions as a guideline to formulate thier own questions for the company. An interview works both ways. I recommend this book as a staple for recruiters, HR Managers, and candidates. It's best to over prepare, than under prepare.
I did not find this book to be very helpful. Jul 8, 2003
As the title suggests, the book lists the most common interview questions. If you have no idea what those questions are, then you might find the book somewhat helpful. Along with each question there is an example answer which usually does not apply to the reader. After each example answer there is a brief snippet about how you should try to to answer that type of question. Unfortunately, these snippets are far too brief to be of much help to the reader (some are a single sentence). If there were more emphasis put on how to answer the question, and less space given to the example answers, I think it would have been a more useful book. I suggest "the Unofficial Guide to Acing the Interview" by Michelle Tullier, published by Hungry Minds. This book will help you get into the proper frame of mind for your interview. It will also help you understand the employer's underlying concerns behind those tough interview questions. When you know why the employer is asking a question, you can form your best answer. Good luck!
some good questions Mar 22, 2003
This book has some good questions to practice before interviews, but don't pay much attention to the answers given. If one tries to tailor his answers to sound like the ones given, he will sound too much like he's reading from a script. Read the explanations of how your answer should be and then practice responding to the particular questions in front of a mirror or with someone posing as an interviewer. Other than the interesting questions, the other information is very basic and can be found in any book on interviewing. The explanations of what a good answer should sound like are ok but a bit too overly simplistic. For example, in the question about getting fired the author says that one should be honest and say that you've corrected the problem. In answering questions about getting fired, one needs to know how to say this. Otherwise, you will be setting yourself up for disaster. Also, I believe that the sample answers given are a mostly a waste. The answers given are way too specialized.
