Overview

In a tight market, job seekers need to be ready to face a challenging new type of interview. This is the book that will prepare them.

Increasingly, employers today are using a tough new kind of interview to evaluate candidates and determine how well they think on their feet. To be successful in these new competency-based interviews, job seekers must be prepared with situation-specific examples that highlight the accomplishments, knowledge, and abilities they have that employers need. Featuring a plethora of sample questions—and winning answers—this book is organized by the five core competencies most interviewers are looking for:

• People skills (teamwork, communication, customer service)

This indispensable guide features fill-in-the-blank exercises readers can use to prepare themselves to demonstrate sought-after competencies and wow potential employers. It’s a powerful book no job seeker should be without.
