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.

What did you love best about What I Wish Every Job Candidate Knew?

After I had about 5 or 6 interviews over the last year with no offer, my frustration kept growing each time.. I knew that there was something I was doing wrong.This book is the perfect guide to explaining to you WHAT you are doing wrong but more importantly WHY it is wrong.. then explains what you should be doing.

What did you like best about this story?

He gave a lot of examples from his own career that were very helpful.

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

The whole booked moved me. I cannot believe all of the things I was doing wrong.

Any additional comments?

Please go ahead and buy this, especially if its been years since you interviewed or if you have stalled in your career like I had and need a change. This one gets straight to the point quickly and cuts through all the useless info and anecdotes and other "fluff" that's in circulation.. After listening to this 2 or 3 times everything stuck and the next interview I was well prepared and was offered the position in less then a month.FYI The author is an actual hiring manager (not a recruiter or HR professional, both people who most times do not make the hiring decisions). keep that in mind as you consider the various resources out there

Basic Advice

If you had only one day to prepare for an interview (or don't want to bother reviewing 200 interview questions to pick the ones that are probably relevant to the job you're applying for), this covers the essential advice you need. However, some of it seems obvious like not asking about vacation, flex time, and benefits during an interview... wait until you get an offer for the job.
