A huge challenge in the interview process is preparing for the unknown. Even with a fairly detailed job description or a briefing by a knowledgeable recruiter, job candidates often don’t know the company’s needs or what will happen during the interview. Huge shifts take place that we—the ones being interviewed—can’t pre- dict. That is one of the reasons why interviewing successfully is so difficult; we have to pay close attention to what we’re told and what we’re not told, as well as to the many non-verbal signals we receive. And many people conducting the interview aren’t well prepared, haven’t been trained in interviewing, and often don’t like the process.
The Essential Job Interview Handbook takes a practical approach to this critical challenge, and will help you prepare effectively for interviews; become familiar with different types of interview ques- tions and answers that focus on a wide range of functions includ- ing science, IT, finance, and marketing; know what to do after an interview; and then put it all together. You will learn how to inte- grate the intangibles with solid practice.
