Wouldn't it be nice if you could just walk into an employer's office, sit down, relax, answer questions honestly-in short, "just be yourself"-and instantly get the job? Unfortunately, the real world doesn't work like that. With people switching careers more and more often and the competition fierce for every position that becomes available, you've got to be primed for any question an interviewer may throw at you. Packed with more than 450 sample questions, Acing the Interview gives you candid advice on answering even the trickiest and most unexpected interview questions. Written by the employment expert Dr. Phil called "the best of the best," this unique and powerful book helps you take charge of any interview situation. Having heard just about every conceivable interview question and answer since joining the placement and recruitment field in 1973, Tony Beshara knows firsthand what responses will get you hired. In this book, he arms you with the surefire answers that will keep you from getting weeded out from the large pool of eager applicants. Acing the Interview helps prepare you for difficult-and sometimes even deceptively simple- questions, including: You really don't have as much experience as we would like-why should we hire you? - How many hours in your previous jobs did you have to work each week to get everything done? - What do you consider most valuable-a high salary, job recognition, or advancement? In addition, the book also arms you with many questions to ask prospective employers that could prevent you making a big job mistake, such as: What would you say are the worst parts of this job? - What are the major problems facing the company and this department? - Why aren't you promoting from within? Acing the Interview takes you through the entire process, from the initial interview to evaluating a job offer, and even into salary negotiation. It's a must-have guide that will enable you to get the job of your dreams.
