More than advice, this book provides a roadmap

As a recruiter I would recommend this book to any candidate who needed advice on how to be interviewed.
101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions, provides a detailed, step-by-step process that any candidate, experienced or novice, can use to prepare for an interview. Candidates are told to prepare a series of worksheets documenting their experience, and formulate answers to predictable but challenging questions such as "Tell me about yourself," as well as the dreaded "What would you change about yourself?" The idea is to prepare the best possible response, not as a way to fake it, but as a way to avoid mistakes when one is on the spot. For each question, the book contains an example of a good response, and pinpoints the many areas that might trip up a job seeker .
Unlike many books for job seekers, this one provides solutions for experienced and inexperienced candidates. The evaluation technique goes beyond the vague common sense advice provided... read more
A MUST have for your job interview!

This is THE book to help anyone prepare themselves properly for an interview in today's world. Most companies now have SBO (Situation, Behavior, Outcome) type questions in their interviews, and if you don't have prepared answers to these questions, you are dead in the water. This book will help you be on top of your game and seperate yourself from the others, if you do the work. It's not hard - you are basically just telling stories about yourself - but you need to take your time and write them down - but this book will guide you. When I graduated college later in life, I had worked at the same company for 8 years and had never really had a "real" interview, as my advances were automatic based on my work. I was scared to death to interview. My friend lent me his version of this book, and by the time I was done preparing, I interviewed with several companies and had 4 job offers at one time! It's obviously my experience and preparedness that landed me the offers, but this book guided... read more
Essential to my job search process

If you're going into an interview without reading this book, you're making a huge mistake. I've bought dozens of books on Amazon but I haven't written one single review. Until I read this book. As a recent college grad in this tough economy my search for steady employment has been a haphazard quest at best. This book has been my guiding light. I was lucky enough to have some experienced professionals help me craft a solid resume and critique my cover letters. I landed several interviews for some great entry level positions at good standing companies in the Boston area. However, that's about as far as I ever got. Then I read Ron Fry's 2 books (this one and the accompanying "101 Smartest Questions to ask on Your Interview) AND GOT A JOB OFFER. This book prepared me to handle what can oftentimes be a very nerve-wracking experience. Ron lays out the kinds of questions you can expect to be asked in an interview and provides examples of GOOD vs. BAD answers. On... read more
