"How to find a Job in the 21st Century"
Made me feel that extra prepared for my Media management Job interview and stun(in most positive way) the 12+ year experienced Hard Core interviewer, which I am grateful for to this book.
In the end I refused the above mentioned Media management Job due to information I had gathered later on about the company, however, the interview for this particular company was tough and there would be no way, I'd pass even first 10 minutes, without training of this book...
Say something about yourself!
The information is current and reflects the interview styles that I've been a part of recently. The author gives specific answers to tough questions while also giving you food for thought on basic things like "tell me about yourself". You'll learn what they really want to know and what to leave out. He also reminds the listener what the interviewer cannot legally ask but can use if you bring it up. There are tips on what to say to politely move around direct questions about your race, religion and other personal questions that should not be on the table. Overall, this is worth listening to.
I turned up the playback speed to 1.5 as it was going a little slow for me, but I still enjoyed listening to it. It has some amazing tips to help you prepare answers for some questions I normally get hung up on. Use the tips!! I used them in my interviews for one company (all three of them) and I was soon filling out employement forms!
I could stand in front of thousands of people and give a speech, but don't put me in an interview and expect me to talk. This changed that. I went into my interviews much more comfortable and had some great answers ready! Buy this book if you want to get the job!
Iranians keep their nukes, Americans lose their insurance.
Absolutely. Training is about dedication and repetition. I thought I knew most of the subject of this book, but it was great to hear it again, especially from The Master! This guy knows his stuff.
Ron Fry is a GREAT narrator!
If you think you know it all, you don't. Like Ron Fry says, confidence is awesome until it makes you lazy.
Mr Fry take us to a full and detalied tour for the culture and art interviewing all levels are in.
I am a season Human Resources Executive and Teacher with exposure to thousands of interviews during my career that I have conducted or participated, and the level used is the right one to prepare the audience to face the interview with skills to express all the vaulable information to recruiters and or hiring managers.
If you are in the process to get a new job, a profesional change or upgrade this the audiobook to hear
Saludos from Mexico!
I am currently getting ready for the interview and I finished already several books. This one is a winner in my book. Ron Fry gives very specific recommendations to questions I was asked multiple times on interviews in the past. I have plenty interviews in my life, but somehow I would forget almost immediately after interview most of the questions that made me feel uncomfortable because I was not prepared to answer them ahead of time. Somehow I simply put them out of my mind - be what will be, I didn't want to dwell on my failure. Ron did a fantastic job refreshing my memory for exactly those questions I never was ready for. I think I simply did not think about them as important. For example: "Tell me about yourself?" I can't believe I always failed to make the best of it.
Like the other reviewer said, I had no idea how to answer the "Tell me about yourself" question until I heard this tape. It really helped me prepare for an interview with a top company. It had lots of other good advice but it was worth it just to know how to answer that one question.
I've used this book in numerous interviews and the material is solid. The advice is priceless and it works very well. Of course, recent changes in interview tactics do undermine some of the topics in here (especially when salary must be reported). Yet the material remains relevant and the narrative is great.
This book covers pretty basic information. I did not find it very useful. Maybe if you are preparing for your first job interview ever this might be helpful.
