More than a cursory discussion 8 April 2012
By Terry Pile - Published on
Format: Paperback
Most job-finding books develop a paragraph or two, a chapter at best, to interviewing by phone. This author devotes an entire book to the subject and it is much needed. Employers are increasingly conducting phone interviews as their first contact with the job candidate and it may be the only chance to "get it right." Bailo's book, The Essential Phone Interview Handbook, is easy to read and offers practical (but sometimes little known) advice about how to ace a phone interview. Suggestions like use a landline, have caller ID, talk in sound bites and dress up for the interview all have merit and the author explains why. The preparation for a phone interview should be as extensive as it would be for a face-to-face meeting. This gem of a book will do just that.

P.S. The book has a detailed table of contents and an index so it is very easy to find specific information that you may want to quickly refer to.

The Job Search Just Became Easier 14 Jun. 2011
By Dad of Divas - Published on
Format: Paperback
So many of us these days have to get through a phone interview before we can even be considered for a face-to-face interview. Knowing how to handle the phone interview is key, but it is also an art form.

This book is a perfect guide and resource for anyone going through the job search. It provides down to earth great examples of what one should be doing to both prepare prior and to survive the phone interview itself.

With the job market being as tight as it is, any little bit of help is needed to get that edge over your competition and this book is one that I would highly recommend!

Practical and too the point 14 July 2013
By Marc R Miller - Published on
Format: Paperback
Disclosure, Paul asked me to review his next book and I offered to review this one as well.

This book is highly practical, which I really like, and gives lots of examples. I have worked with job seekers for many years, and the phone interview is the critical first step. I completely agree with Paul on the phone interview being like a first date. The job search is just like dating and marriage. You want to make a good impression during the phone interview (first date), but you will not likely ask for the job (propose marriage) during the phone interview.

Take the time to read this book thoroughly and take notes. Lots and lots of practical information.

I read several previous comments about this being dated by the Paul's insistence on not using a cell phone. Well... you should avoid using one at all cost.

Great book for any job seeker!

I got 2 interviews after reading this book Must Read!! 11 Sept. 2013
By Emily C - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great information, it is so worth it. Especially if you have been looking for awhile or if you are currently employed. Great to know things you do not think of or don't notice till it is pointed out. I am still looking, but I did receive a 3rd interview, unfortunately not the amount of money I wanted;so I turned it down. I am also waiting for the results of another interview; even if this one does not work out, I am quite confident I will land another interview. I will get the job I want. This book gave me loads of much needed confidence and encouragement . Great Book. Success to you fellow job hunters.
