  • Tell me about a time when you had competing deadlines and had to choose one to miss.
  • Describe a time when a customer had an issue with the way you managed his or her account. What did you do about it?
  • Tell me about a time you spearheaded an initiative and met resistance from the overwhelming majority of staff.

You’ll also discover seven ways to stand out during your interview, what to do when you lack experience, and how to avoid the common mistakes that keep candidates from being hired.

    "Not Quite As Good..."

    What a snore-fest? Such a boring narrator. Could his voice be any more boring? There may have been some good information in this but the narration was so dry that it simply put me to sleep. There are definitely better books out there on the subject.

    "Not for senior job interviews"

    I'm sorry to say that I found this book dull, repetitive and not helpful at all. Maybe better as a paper version.
