Product description

Review

If every candidate absorbed Jenny Rogers' wonderfully down-to-earth wisdom, the success rate of every selection process would improve dramatically. --Jeremy Bullmore, The Guardian Work Section

Job Interview Success provides realistic and valuable advice to maximise your potential at interview. --Elizabeth Bacchus, The Successful CV Company

If you've ever wondered what the interviewer really wants to know, Job Interview Success gives you all the answers. --Clare Whitmell, Guardian Careers

Every page is packed with practical wisdom offered in such a directly engaging way that one feels immediately compelled to act. --Professor Paul Brown, London South Bank University and Nottingham Law School

I was impressed with this book. Its subtitle is 'Be Your Own Coach' and that's exactly what this no nonsense book enables you to be.
--The Guardian, 2nd September 2011

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rogers says that 70% of her tutees get the job; unfortunately I wasn't one of them! But there's multiple reasons for that and I used this book last year, leant it to a friend and bought another for a recent interview, so I do think it has many plus points.
Lots of sensible advice here - preparing for the predictable questions, seeing the assessment process with its multiple components in a positive way, tips too on body language and what to do with your hands (bananas on your lap - I thought of this half way through my recent interview and stopped waving them about!).
There's advice too on presentations, although I'm less convinced by her claim that it's style over substance here. I liked the advice of planning two examples (or 'stories') for each potential question. I'm not sure the predictable questions came up in my interview. Don't do what I did, however, and jump out of bed at midnight to sew a button on your blazer (Rogers advises a buttoned up blazer to look 'prepared' and to prepare your outfit a week before!)
The part at the beginning is good because it helps you focus on whether you actually want the job and is it right for you. As is the final chapter - how to cope with rejection!
Well worth a read.

Format: Paperback
There's a plethora of books on interviewing and being interviewed for jobs. In "Job Interview Success: Your complete guide to practical interview skills", author Jenny Rogers has hit the high spots. This book stands out from the rest.

Rogers takes the prospective job applicant through the entire process from "Do you really want the job?" to "After the interview" and "Starting the new job". The book does what it says on the jacket "Be your own coach". Rogers' experience as a coach in this field comes through on every page - it's practical, down-to-earth advice that should work for anyone who is about to jump onto the pre-employment treadmill.

Chapter one provides a number of self-analysis tools to help you discover your motivation for the intended job. Anyone who carries out these exercises, will I'm sure, not only find out whether they actually do want the job, but in the process find out a lot about themselves. The remainder of the book, although not filled with such analytical tools, poses many questions for the candidate that will help them through all phases of the recruitment process. It also has many checklists, tips and personal examples that show how difficult situations/questions might best be handled.

As someone who has also been in the recruitment field, I was impressed with this book not only because it covered the obvious topics (such as dress code, handling nerves etc.) but because Rogers often puts a different spin on them (such as acting as a facilitator if you happen to be in a team assessment centre).

This is not only a "must read" for anyone about to apply for a new position (either within or external), but I'd strongly suggest it become a "must do". Highly recommended.

Anyone who has ever gone through the interview process knows how difficult they can be. This book, in a straightforward and concise manner, breaks down the components of the interview, detailing from both sides of the interview table the keys to recruitment success. If there are particular aspects of interviewing that you find difficult - such as dealing with nervousness, or how to give a professional presentation - this book is great as it dedicates each chapter to various stages of the interview process - from researching the company/organization to starting a new job. An easy to read and practical book, I highly recommend it for anyone searching for a job.

If you're thinking about changing jobs, looking for promotion, or facing any kind of job application, interview or transition, this book is a really useful resource. It's packed with practical advice on every stage of the process. There's inspiration and encouragement on the big questions (what do I want out of a career?) and down-to-earth guidance on the small ones (what should I wear to the interview?). The author clearly has a wealth of experience to draw on, and the writing is engaging and refreshingly direct.

This is an easy to read and enjoyable book about how to maximise your chances of being successful in interviews. It is full of good advice and sensible tips delivered in a no nonsense way accompanied by practical examples from interviewers and interviewees.

The idea of trying to tell a story through your interview answers was completely new to me and whilst I think it will take time to perfect the skill of doing so it made me think about my own experience in a completely different light. This was helpful both in preparing for the interview as well as during the interview itself.

Thinking more carefully about the questions behind the questions actually being asked and how to respond to these was invaluable as was how to respond both to the predictable questions as well as the trickier ones that always come up.

This book gave a much needed confidence boost and solid advice from an expert in advance of an interview and led to a really positive outcome. I would highly recommend it if you are struggling to make that move into a new role.
