Amazing book that changed my life!
I recommend this book to anyone looking for a new job or is on the lookout for new opportunities (which we should always be prepared for!). When Can You Start? 2014: Ace the Job Interview and Get Hired provides great and easy to understand and follow advice in all areas of job interviewing - pre, during, and after. The author starts off with some great tips about interview preparation, goes into how to handle the interviews of different types (phone vs in-person, behavioral vs. role specific; panel interview), and continues with advice on interview follow up communications. It is advice that helped me prepare and tackle many interviews and I was able to land my new job much thanks to this book.
Paul Freiberger helps handle some of the "trick questions" that, as he points out "come out of the blue" and often make interviewees feel uncomfortable. You should get the book to learn what to do if you get one of those questions.
I love audio-books and was able to listen to the book several times to nail down all of the author's advice. The narrator was quite pleasant and easy to follow.
When Can You Start - useful advice for job seekers
Relevant clear advice
Friendly approach, practical advise covering many different scenarios.
New rules for the phone interview which covered a variety of situations.
No. I found it useful to listen to a few chapters and let the advise sink in. Also, while I listened to some of it in the car, I also listened at home and took notes on parts I wanted to be sure to remember.
There's lots of practical advise here covering many different aspects of the job search from the various types of interviews, prepping for interviews, follow up steps and salary negotiations. Very helpful guide.
