After working on The Inner View of Your Interview for almost a year now, I’m proud to say that this 102 page, 40,000 word book is now available! Taking a look at interviewing from an interviewer’s perspective, this book reveals not only WHAT you’re likely to be asked, but WHY. It then delves into HOW you should answer those questions and WHERE you should guide your interviewer (hint: to your own strengths as they relate to the open position).
I’ve been interviewing other people for job openings for several decades and I’m always amazed at the lack of preparation far too many people bring to their interview. On the other side of the coin, I’m also amazed that other job candidates think they can spend 5 minutes rehearsing a few answers they found on the Internet and snow me or any other interviewer. An interviewer can always tell when a job candidate has marginally prepared or has been coached. And although that only works slightly better than a completely unprepared candidate, a seasoned interviewer will see right through the rehearsed replies and send you packing. The Inner View of Your Interview doesn’t recommend you come off sounding like an interviewing robot, repeating the tired old phrases and slogans espoused in books from the career section of Barnes and Noble. The Inner View of Your Interview teaches you step by step how to prepare for your job interview using bonus worksheets and dozens of examples.
The best prepared candidate for a job interview is the one who sounds completely natural, who doesn’t sound coached, and who has more knowledge about the interviewing process and the company’s needs than first appears. THAT is the candidate most likely to receive a job offer; and if a job seeker puts into practice the tips and techniques found in The Inner View of Your Interview, everything else being equal, he or she will be that candidate.
Writing a book isn’t easy. Far too often ideas come in flurries faster than fingers can type. Other times there is nothing there and nothing flows together, but after sticking with it, I’m proud of what was produced.
