I Got the Job!

I'm turning 48 in a month! I was very nervous about applying for a new job after being at the same job my entire career. My employer laid off 45 people in an attempt to rehire at lower paying salaries. I missed the cut, but I might not have missed the next one. It was enough to make me look and see what jobs were available.
I followed the guidance in this book to a T. I asked great questions, and had great answers for even the questions I couldn't answer correctly. I wrote thank you notes, made eye contact, and showed tremendous self confidence, even through my nervousness.
I negotiated a 37% increase and some telework opportunities as well.
If not for this book, I would never have developed the fine details to be the candidate who stood out.
2 weeks into my new job and I've never been more satisfied. Thanks for creating such a wonderful tool!

Great interviewing book!

This is the first book I’ve ever read about interviewing and I’d have to say there’s no way I could imagine another book that will get me my next job. I’m really excited to use the tactics and techniques in my next interview and am looking forward to a success story!

Great book on job interviews.

Loved it. Thoughtfully put together and had good examples. I liked the SOAR technique and ideas on intentionally developing and managing your career across your life cycle.

Easy to Apply to any industry

Fantastic and easy to follow. I listened to this book probably 4 times before my last interview. I then actually recorded my interview so I could go back and review how well I did. It’s also notable to mention that I work in the spirits and beverage industry and was interviewing for a Bar Manager type of role, not your typical 9-5. The content in this book is presented in such a logical and thoughtful way that you can apply it to any field. Highly recommended.
