Author: Arnold G. Boldt
Offers a helpful guide to today’s interviewing process through an evaluation of eighteen different types of interviews, commonly asked questions, career coaching, self-evaluation techniques, and samples of related job-search correspondence.
Job interviews have changed dramatically in recent years. Both the format of interviews and the questions that are asked are designed to drill deeply into a candidate’s personality and behavior, not just his or her job qualifications. The cost of hiring and retaining good employees in the 21st century compels employers to be much more careful about whom they hire, leading to a more in-depth approach to interviewing. In this companion to No-Nonsense Resumes and No-Nonsense Cover Letters, Arnold Boldt takes the reader step-by-step from interview preparation to performance to follow-up, in a straightforward, easy-to-follow manner.
No-Nonsense Job Interviews is a practical, down-to-earth, and accessible guide for candidates of any level: entry level, blue-collar, mid-career, and senior-level managers. It begins with thorough, but easy-to-understand explanations of the 18 different types of job interviews and the key elements of interviewing techniques. Included are the most common and toughest interview questions you’ll most likely be asked along with the best way to answer them. Subsequent chapters offer tips on researching the company, asking the interviewer, and evaluating your performance. Included in each chapter are specific tips from professional career coaches, plus samples of thank-you letters and other correspondence related to the job-interview process.
