Publisher's Summary

Learn from my 20 years of interviewing and hiring people just like you, across multiple Fortune 500 companies.
Don't take my word for it - hear the real stories of how people landed their dream job with this information.
You're qualified for the job - it should be yours. Let me show you what goes through the head of the interviewer so you can use it to your advantage. An advantage others won't have.
I've captured a highly condensed set of recommendations in this book that will put you in the very small set of interviewees that will stand above other candidates.
Whether you are seeking an entry level or an experienced management position, these recommendations will give you the edge. I see "bad" behaviors across all levels of interviews, without candidates even being aware of what they are doing that prevents them from being hired.
You don't need to memorize 101 interview questions and answers.
You need actual experiences from the other side of the table to guide you.
Listen to hiring managers. Is the book you're reading now written by the person who decides to hire you, or by someone else involved in the process such as a recruiter or human resources role? If so, their guidance may get you an interview, but won't give you insight into what goes through the manager's head.

Surprisingly good.

I’m an employer who is up to his 11th book on hiring skills. Decided to listen to this advice to candidates. From someone that sits on the hiring side of the table, I can tell you that this book gives very solid advice. Canned answers are known to people that hire - we spot them and it reduces your credibility. Bad or inexperienced hiring managers hire if they “like you” and those they hire often fail quickly as a bad job match. Good hiring managers look for (1) skills and (2) cultural fit (character).
One thing. Do the cover letter. It helps personalize your resume - shows you’re interested in the company and why. Lack of a brief direct cover letter stating passion for the role and a few matching past skills might make the difference between you and another. Only takes a minute - check grammar and spelling if the work entails writing ability. Good luck.

The Why and the How of Interviewing

I'm definitely going to listen to this book again. It is packed with information and insights to the point that I listened to one chapter twice and still felt that there was more that I could learn from those same words.

Tuckerton doesn't feed you the answers to pass the interview. He teaches you how to craft your own answers that address the real questions and highlight the right skills. He's teaching critical thinking and directing you on what to think about.

I'm looking for a new job right now, and I'm likely going to sit down with the Kindle version of this book and outline some answers to common questions. The narration is great. Abernathy is a pro and sounds authoritative in his delivery.
