KISS: May I have this dance?

Setting the stage: As a senior Information Technology professional with 12+ years of hard-core software development experience, I haven't had to `interview' in the traditional sense since fresh out of college and I couldn't understand why I wasn't getting to the second interview stage - or even know that there was a second stage. This book gets your mind in the state of successfully EARNING your next job - not passively hoping something or someone will GIVE you a job. After reading this book the percentage of phone screens that turned into face to face interviews, the number of face to face interviews that turned into second interviews has increased tremendously and I'm VERY happy with the contents and messages contained in this book. Like all the Interview books out there, this book also describes the following: 1) How to fix your resume & cover letter to be more focused, i.e., put your resume on a diet. 2) How to find and jobs and submit, what to do afterwards and good common practices. But most importantly, 3) Practice tough interview questions and learn how to turn negatives into positives. What I like most about this book is that it is a quick read and fun - not weighted down with too much detail. (KISS - Keep it simple stupid. But, understand the process) Interviewing is a dance. You must know what to ware, how to ask your partner for the dance, how to dance, and how to thank them afterwards. After all - everyone in the room is watching. But don't be nervous! If you have made it to the face to face interview, then they like you enough to invite you to the prom. So shine your shoes, practice your dance, and smile! After you read this book, get on-line and find websites that have more practice questions and answers that dive deep into your core competencies. This book, like any paper printed material, is fairly generic with respect to particular industries and some of the questions are dated - you'll have to find more examples of deeper core questions, i.e., Management, Technology, Finance etc. Try typical job posting sites like Monster. (See worldwideweb dot cpgjoblist.com/html/sample_questions.php) However, for around $10, this book it is a must have. Think of it as your own private dancing partner/tutor. Cheers, Sasha

Helpful and easy reading

I found the general-purpose book concise and easy to read. It is well written and divided into relavent chapters with tips, question/answers scenarios, checklists. The book may seem simple but job hunting should not be a rocket science. It helps you get the important and basic things done correctly, and then your natural talent and personality should carry you the rest of the way. It is VERY helpful specially when you are in the high-stress period of interviewing. Good chapters on preparing for the interviews and then following up. Ive looked through many books and found this one to be the best if you are only looking for one book. If you have been job-hunting for over a year, you should find a specialized book relavent to your field of expertise, or consider changing your career. I give this book partial credit for helping me find my current job! I used the 2001 edition to find a job in 2006. I was offered the job within a week.

I loved this book!

I went on a cruise and took this book with me, knowing that I had an interview two days after I returned home. Where I work, we use an interview panel and it's a very intimidating. I studied the entire book while I was gone, and felt prepared when I returned home. While I was in the "hot seat," the questions triggered responses suggested in the book that I wouldn't have thought of on my own. I walked out of the interview feeling that I had nailed it, unlike previous interviews for various positions within the company. I was offered the job the next day. Four of my friends read the book and also have new jobs. The book really puts you in the right frame of mind to answer questions that might surprise you and leave you fumbling for the right words. The book is easy to read, but more importantly, it makes you think of how you would respond ahead of time.

Great book

This is a great book for somebody who is looking for the first job. It mentions every detail about things that we should prepare for the first interview, and the questions that will be asked.
