Review of Bob Firestone's "Ultimate Guide to Job Interview Answers"
by Kirkus Reviews; long recognized as the gold standard for tough and impartial book reviews.
“Offers strategies and examples to help readers ace the tough
questions during a job interview. The book is succinct and engaging,
providing a wealth of job interview information in an easy-to-follow
style. Firestone guides readers in figuring out how to position
themselves as ideal candidates, and how to play up their strengths in
ways that hiring managers and human resources departments will
appreciate. He gives candidates the perspective from the other side of
the interview desk, describing what hiring managers want to know, why
they want to know it, and how the candidate can effectively deliver that
material. Firestone also describes "behavioral competencies" and
encourages readers to discuss their accomplishments in ways that
meet these standards. Finally, he lists sample questions for candidates
to ask at various stages of the interview process. Overall, this engaging
Guide focuses on smart preparation strategies, and offers useful advice
to make the average candidate feel more confident. A valuable
resource for today's job candidates.” — Kirkus Reviews
