This is what you need before you go for any job interview. Concise but packed with loads of really useful information and ideas to help you get the job you've been longing for. This book clearly shows, in simple stages, how to prepare yourself and face an interview panel. A real confidence booster, I used these techniques to get the job I'm in now, so I highly recommend this book.

Just graduated from The University of Sheffield and bought this book to help me in my graduate interviews. The first interview I had I got the job, and I put that down to the content of this book. In particular the section on answering interview questions by giving specific examples. It works, highly recommend!

I got the job! In fact I've been offered two jobs and I can honestly say my success is largely down to this book. Of course only you can put the work in, however this excellent book ensures that you structure your revision in the correct way. It was amazing that the interview questions that this book teaches you to prepare for actually came up in my recent interviews, and in my mind I sat there in the interview room and thought `thank goodness I bought that book!' because I would have been dead in the water without it!

My Mother and Partner also used this book for their recent interviews and guess what, they both got the jobs! My Partner then advised her friend to purchase the book who had not had an interview for over 20 years and was facing redundancy - she also got the job!

I found that after reading this book and following its guidance, I have had the confidence to apply for jobs that I would previously have considered out of my reach, including the job that I've just been offered!

If you are looking for a book to help with that important approaching interview or a promotion opportunity at your current place of work, then please don't miss out on securing yourself a copy of this book! For the price it's a must buy! Even if you've been considering another one of the many interview help books available please buy this as well.

The most practical, useful interview book I have ever read. I used the format of the answers in a interview yesterday and it removed the block you get because you don't know how to answer some questions. This will be the ONLY book I'll be using for interview prep. In fact I'll test by adding some of the answers to my cv by adding examples to help me get further interview.

This is a refreshingly quick guide to the common interview questions asked. I hadn't realised that employers always chose the same questions but looking back I realise they do. It's a great little book which gets to the point quickly. Ideal if you want to revise when you have been offered an interview.

This book is a gem. I found myself out of work after some years and my interview skills were decidedly rusty. After several failed interviews I knew I had to do something. The author points out need to keep the conversation going at an interview and quote specific examples from past jobs to make your point. Well worth reading.

I bought this book just before I was due to attend an interview. What I liked about it the most was the suggestions for questions that interviewers are likely to ask - it helped me think through my skills, knowledge, strengths and weaknesses which I don't always plan answers in advance for. Its small size was also a bonus - good quality, relevant information without being too onerous. I would highly recommend this book and thanks for having it for the Kindle.

You wouldn't think that a book about interview skills would be enjoyed, but it was because it's easy to read and it makes sense. I found myself making notes about point's mentioned ready for an upcoming interview. It's not telling you how to get the job but pushing you in the right direction, which is all I wanted.
