Which scene was your favorite?

How to build a C.A.G.E - This is a very important tool in an interview that will help you in presenting your accomplishments to the interviewee. I have interviewed several people during my professions along with interviewed for positions myself. The number one area of opportunity I see in people is being able to talk about themselves with this C.A.G.E. model reviewed in the book helps you take your accomplishments and break them down to a level for not only you to see where you have came from and what you have accomplished but it also provides you the knowledge and ability to present these to your interviewee. This can make you or break you in an interview!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

How you have handled a conflict S.T.A.R. this is a great way to access and correct any situations that occur. I will use these steps in the future and apply to any arising situtations.


Any additional comments?

After reviewing this book and applying the key tools to my last interview. I felt this was one of my best interviews yet. It helped me to be extremely organized in the interview with the information needed. Of course the book does not give you every question you will ever have on an interview however there may be different phrases of questions on each interview you attend there is only one end result to the interview which is to see if you are the right fit for the position. This book allows you to be prepared for any question thrown at you in an interview.
