You’ll discover:

  * how to prepare and plan for any interview

* the 15 most common interview mistakes – and how to avoid them

* lots of practice questions and answers – plus the top ten questions interviewers ask

* how to follow up and get the best deal

 

 

The Interview Book has full, free online support – more questions, CV templates, tools and reader offers – all available through The CV Centre online at www.innedacv.co.uk/readertools.

 

No matter what your age, background, job or level of experience, The Interview Book will help you master the perfect interview technique.

I bought this book around the time I started sending out my CV and it was the basis for my interview preparation. Using this book I got a job offer after attending my first interview in 12 years.

I prepared two weeks in advance of the interview - I really don't like interviews and I was extremely nervous. After reading the book I formulated bullet point answers to each of the questions on paper and then I asked family and friends to conduct mock interviews with me. First I started practicing by reading in the mirror and memorising the talking points, followed by the mock interviews. I did this every day until I could naturally reply to the answers (rather than giving a completely scripted reply). It wasn't easy, but it allowed me to go to the interview feeling that I done everything possible to prepare and I felt much more confident about it, despite being an inteview-phobe. Following the first interview I was asked back to a second interview, and then I was offered the job. For the second interview I went over areas where I thought I could have been clearer, or provided more detailed answers, and practiced the other questions as well.

This book is well worth buying and reading. Although some of the issues dealt with in the first chapters are fairly obvious (turn up on time, dress well etc. etc) the top ten interview questions and then the '40 other questions you need to be prepared to answer' are incredibly helpful. The author goes into great detail providing the background for each question, explaining what the interviewer is trying to get at, and providing examples of the sorts of answers you can give. I really think that if you prepare properly using this book and practice, practice, practice it will help you'll stand out above all the other candidates. It worked for me.

I have to say that this book was a real, real help to me. I have suffered from nerves at interviews, to the poinbt where I just go blank. I have thoguht about getting some professional training but this book actually gave me the boost I needed to get out there and feel more confident in my abilities.

Preparation is the key for interviews (I know, I found out the hard way!) and this book helps you to feel prepared and ready. Don't get me wrong, I stil had some nerves when I walked into my last interview, but with the help of this book I feel like I really did a whole lot better than I had done beforehand. And... I got the job. So, if there is a better endorsement of that I'd like to hear it!

Five stars!

Having blown the job of my dreams by turning into a gibbering wreck during an interview when my nerves got the better of me, I was determined not to make the same mistake again. This book has given me the confidence to go into an interview safe in the knowledge that I know what to expect, can handle those tricky questions and know what not to say. The book provides sample questions and answers, as well as other hints and tips to boost your confidence. It will definitely be re-read every time I have an interview and need to impress, as I learnt the hard way that just turning up and hoping for the best generally doesn't work.

I love this book. I have had several interviews with no success. I found this book covers all the general points of an interview and also advises on how to accept, decline or deal with not getting an job offer. It's given me confidence and helped me secure my current job. Recommended.

I bought this book (The Interview Book: 'Your Definitive Guide to the Perfect Interview') instead of 'The Interview Question & Answer Book: Your Definitive Guide to the Best Answers to Even the Toughest Interview...' based on a review. The review said one book was included in the other. That is not true.

There are 65 questions listed at the back of this book without answers. The answers are in 'The Interview Question & Answer Book' and not in 'The Interview Book'.

This book is not definitive as additional information is in the other book. I am not happy as I wanted all the information.

The information that is actually in this book is, however, very good.

Very, very useful. The "top ten questions" covered most of the interviews I attended. I was very successful as a result, one interview ended with them trying to persuade me to take the job.
Only downside is I managed to ace an interview for a job which wasn't right for me (and me for it) so I ended up looking for another one three months later. Luckily I had this really handy book......

If you are looking at this, you may be anxious about an upcoming interview.

It is best to be prepared to help calm nerves, so this WILL help, just by feeling like you are ready.

Content is good, I found it helpful.

Good luck, you will be fine!

The book is packed full of great tips to help you perform to your potential in job interviews. I particularly liked how the author explained the meaning behind the questions you are most likely to be asked.
