By Pat Criscito and Dee Funkhouser

#6314. Job hunters in today’s tight employment market need all the help they can get. Help in preparing for a job interview is especially important because the interview is where prospective employers decide whether or not to hire an applicant.

Each page asks a typical job interviewer’s question along with an explanation of why such questions are typically asked plus tips on how each job hunter can customize the best answer to fit his or her own situation. Sample responses appear on the page’s reverse side.
The book is designed so that pages can be pulled out, selected and shuffled according to need, and used as flashcards for practice. Interviewers are notorious for asking a wide range of questions, and this book covers virtually all of them, with 200 Q & A cards that fall into a variety of categories. For instance:
  • Work and Education questions (“What have you done?”): Why did you leave your last job? What did you like most about your last job? What did you like least about it? Have you ever been fired? What is your management style? and many more.
  • Skills and Competencies questions (“What can you do?”): You appear to be over-qualified for this job. How do you handle an angry employee? and many more.
  • Personal Values/Goals questions (“Who are you?”): After six months on the job, what will be the most annoying thing about you? Where do you see yourself five years from now? and many more.
  • Behavioral/Situational questions (“Can you tell a story?”): Tell me about a time when you had to juggle priorities to meet a deadline, and many more.
  • Tricky Job Fit questions (“Are you a match?”): How would you describe your ideal work environment? What aspects of the job will you like least? and many more.
  • Torture/Trick questions (“Can you take the heat?”): Why should we hire you for this position? What do you expect yourstarting salary to be? How do I rate as an interviewer?
The reverse side of each card tells why the question is asked, presents sample responses, and allows space to customize an answer. This is an unusual and effective job-hunting tool that will be valued by job applicants, career coaches/counselors, and college placement offices.
