Publisher's Summary

At some point, most people have been caught off guard by tough interview questions. This audiobook helps listeners take charge of the situation and gives job seekers candid advice for answering even the most unexpected questions, including:

  • You really don't have as much experience as we would like - why should we hire you?
  • How many hours in your previous jobs did you have to work each week to get everything done?
  • What do you consider most valuable - a high salary, job recognition, or advancement?

    The book also arms readers with questions to ask prospective employers that could prevent their making a big job mistake:

  • What would you say are the worst parts of this job
  • What are the major problems facing the company and this department?
  • Why aren't you promoting from within?

    Taking readers through the entire process, from the initial interview to evaluating a job offer, and even into salary negotiation, Acing the Interview is a no-nonsense, take-no-prisoners guide to interview success.

      "Good Content Overshadowed by Poor Narration"

      I had just finished reading 60 Seconds Youre Hired and enjoyed it but wanted another perspective so I bought this audiobook hoping for more enlightenment. While this audiobook has some excellent content, the narrator (who happens to be the author) blows it with a monotone stumbling diction and in no way motivated me (which I personally feel is very important for a book like this). In fact, he comes off as very pessimistic and it is hard to imagine him being successful at his craft by the way the book was narrated (thus causing me to have less faith in his methodology). Also, the excess content that did not pertain to the actual interview was not that helpful, but with a better speaker it may have been endurable.

      "More than just the Interview"

      Given the title I was expecting this book to focus on just the interview process. However the first half is devoted more generally to the job search process (this is okay if you're looking for an overall guide, not so welcome if you just want to get down to interview preparation). I found it a little annoying to have been referred to the author's other book (which is a more general job search book) to get additional information on an interview topic.
      Also a bit annoying was the editing/production on this audio book. There are about half a dozen occasions where the narrator stops and repeats a sentence that should have been edited out.
      Overall a useful reference if you know what you are getting.

      "Good content, poor narration"

      Full marks for an interesting and useful book. Unfortunately the narration was very poor to the degree that it severely detracted from the book. It's unfortunate more work was not put into correcting the frequent reading mistakes and re-reading. To show how poor the narration is, the audio sample does not even include the reading of the book!

      "If you are experienced, DO NOT WASTE your time"

      This is the first review I have ever left a review on Audible and it is only because this book is unbelievably bad. The monotone author is horrible, if you know anything at all about applying for jobs, this is a complete waste of time. The first half is about recruiters and how they work, (unimportant to me) and after I suffered through that, there was almost no useful information on job interviewing. Get anything else. If you have never applied for a job before or are very inexperienced, it might be helpful, however I think most of it is just common sense.

      "Great Content"

      Although the narrator is obviously reading some type of written document the content of the book is very insightful. The book gives the reader the perspective of an interviewer about responses to questions. I found this very informative because I have worked for over 25 years but all these years were spent at 2 jobs. Recently I've been interviewing for better positions and was puzzled by some of the questions interviewers asked me that appeared to be irrelevant to the job. The book explains why those type of questions are asked which also gave me some insight about the values of perspective employers. The author even has a good sense of humor about when to answer a question in detail and when to provide a short answer then "Shut your mouth". The book had me laughing when the author was candid and blunt with his recommendations. I would highly recommend this book for those "unexperienced" like myself with job hunting or those who may be considered "a job jumper". It certainly couldn't hurt to get more information than you already may have. Also, I would recommend skipping chapter 1. It's dry and the meat starts in chapter 2.

      "A Great Listen!"

      By far, the best book on interviewing I’ve read/listened to yet. Clear, concise and easy to understand. The writer does a great job in presenting his clearly and he breaks down each point to make this book very easy to follow. He also does a great job narrating it too. Some very good advice in this book and I was very impressed. It was very educational and very informative. I will definitely be listening to this title again. A must for everyone’s library and definitely a must for anyone who is about to go on an interview.

      "Net call"

      Any thought and preparation you do for an interview is better than simply worrying about it ? but this is not sensitive to European and particularly British cultural norms. Approach with caution, this book will boost your confidence and offer reassurance just when you need it ? but in the UK it always pays to be sensitive and conservative in business.
