For novices only

If these are the toughest interview questions you ever get, then you probably haven't gone very far.

Strengths and weaknesses, tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself in five years, these are the types of basic questions that get discussed.

If you have never been to an interview before, then this might be useful; however, all of this information is available for free on many websites.

Disappointing.

Impressively bad

Please do not waste your time with this audiobook. As others have noted, the questions are in no way tough or different from what you'll find anywhere else.

However, note that his answers are also bad; Portney sounds nervous and unsettled (terrible to listen to- i wish the sound sample had his laugh) and is extremely repetitive. This means that A) much of the meager 1 and a quarter hour is wasted B) many sample answers are circular and sound poorly thought out.

I went to his website and couldn't even find a resume, cv or employment history: very suspicious. Also, it seems like it was written by a six-year-old.

In summary, just because you confidently paste your name and face all over your work doesn't mean you are an authority. Pull the other one, Portney.

Impressive!

I love the way the author narrates his own book. He does such a great way of presenting the material that it’s more like he is naturally talking to you directly and not just reading from a book. I’ve read and listened to many books on this subject but I was very impressed by this author/narrator. Just a great book on the subject... clear, concise and very easy to comprehend.

David Portney really knows his stuff!!! I am SO thankful to have discovered him!!! I listened to this audio cd a few days before my interview and every single question the employer asked me was covered on the cd!!! I felt VERY prepared and confident because of the cd!!!...and I GOT THE JOB!!! Linda C. Tucson/AZ

Write it down and listen.

Listen well, listen again, write it down and rehearse it. The ability to be positive and have confidence is important.

It can only help.

This book was helpful in presenting "what if" questions for me to prepare for, well worth the time to listen.
