Can you explain why you're the person they need to hire?

Employers ask you 100 different interview questions...but what they really want to know is, "Why should we hire you?" If you get interviews but you don't get the job, you have not explained that to them.

This is the audiobook that will show you how to use your answers to get the job.

What this audiobook will do for you:

  • Tell you why interviewers ask certain questions
  • Show you what they are looking for in your answer
  • Give you strategies for answering the toughest questions
  • Warn you about answers that will kill your chances
  • Give you how-to tips, phrases, and words for answering 101 job interview questions

What kinds of questions are in the book?

  • Tell me about yourself.
  • What's your greatest weakness?
  • What salary are you looking for?
  • Why do you want to join this company?
  • Why should we hire you?
  • Why do you have a gap in your employment history?
  • Tell me about a time when you failed.
  • Describe a time when your work was criticized and how you handled it.
  • What motivates you?
  • What questions do you have for us?

Who needs this book?

If you have ever felt that you don't have the words you need to explain why you're the person they need to hire... Can't quite "sell yourself" for the job... Stumble over your answers because you don't know what they really want to hear... Just want to be more confident in the interview...

Then this is the audiobook for you!

A must read if you haven't interviewed in a while

Excellent narration and good questions and answers. The only thing I did not like was hearing the same or similar questions like salary negotiations or hearing about the 30 60 90 plan over and over. It would be good to have questions that more senior individuals would get. More about leadership etc. Otherwise good audio book.

Got the job!!

After years of getting no's after interviews I finally decided to invest in refining my interview skills and purchased this audible book as well as another audible book by Peggy... I prepped myself 2 days prior and on the day of the interview and these questions and answers helped me land a job that I love as well as boosted my confidence because I knew what to expect and how to answer instead of scrambling for things to say or how to answer certain questions. I didn't miss a beat or feel nervous. Thank you so much for this gem. I'm incredibly indebted to your audio books. ❤️️❤️️

A great book, a poor narration.

What would have made How to Answer Interview Questions better?

This is a great book, unfortunatelly the narration was poor and instead of going on and on about many questions the autor could have used catagories in order to organize the questions better.

Who was your favorite character and why?

None

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Miller?

If I have to rate 0-10 I would put 1, not only I lost interest in the book but I got bored listening Scott talk with his monotone voice over an over again, the book is about experience and it should be giving some emotions.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was disappointed for the naration. In addition instead of using 101 questions which in some cases were repetitive Peggy could categorized them in main topics.

Interviewing? -You NEED This Powerful Book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This wonderful resource has so much of the interview process defined with respect to what questions you may expect, and what confident answers you might prepare to best achieve YOUR success! I would absolutely recommend it to a friend...I already have!

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Answer Interview Questions?

One of the most memorable moments for me was actually in recalling some of the interview questions that had been directed to me in past job interviews, where I might have been caught off guard. This resource gives you the "edge" you need to sail through the interview process with confidence! This certainly helps eliminate anxiety and stress!

Have you listened to any of Scott Miller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Scott Miller does a wonderful job of holding the listener's attention throughout the work. Your mind will not wander when listening to his professional narration of important information that needs to "stick" with the listener. (He has a great voice that's easy on the ears!)

Any additional comments?

Anyone seeking a new job position, whether at your present company or a new company, should review these powerful interview questions and take some time to reflect on how to best answer them if they are presented at your interview. Preparation for your interview day is greatly enhanced through attention to this work. Interesting and powerful read for any job seeker!

Best Interview Resource Ever!

What made the experience of listening to How to Answer Interview Questions the most enjoyable?

I maintained so much information listening and reading the book. The narrator was superb by being engaging and the content was so insightful!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I like the behind the scenes look of what an interviewer is thinking on each question. It really helped to understand how and what to answer best.

What about Scott Miller’s performance did you like?

I loved Scott Miller's engaging voice. It was NOT monotone like other audio books. He kept my interest throughout this entire book. I tried to copy his inflection when I practiced answering the interview questions.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The whole book was great from beginning to end!

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend this audio book to everyone especially people who are looking for a job or in any interview process. I am a recruiter and train people how to interview. There were so many insightful tips that I will be teaching my candidates the best way to answer interview questions. This is the best interview resource I have ever read and loved the audio portion, too. This book is in an easy to use format and is very instructive for helping the candidate get inside the thought process of the employer. I found it quite helpful in preparing for interviews and practicing how to answer interview questions the RIGHT way. I learned so much that I will listen to it again and again! Thanks for this wonderful interview resource.

Covers every angle

This offers a great way to answer questions and have a positive spin. Despite giving a negative answer the author offers a great way to word your sentences to keep the statement positive.

Highly recommended

Interview questions can sound absurd, weird or confusing. Thats why we all fumble a bit while answering those seemingly simple questions. This book breaks down the question behind the question and helps you to stay on topic during the interview.

Good if a bit repetitive

Some gems. A lot of similar questions about negotiating pay. Some more suggestions about describing your weaknesses would have been helpful - we get it Peggy you are impatient. Overall worthwhile

Good Advice

Very thorough. It covers many likely interview questions, but does favour business and management roles.

The book is great for getting you thinking before an interview. I felt it served me well in the preparation for my last interview and overall I was quite happy with it.
