Summary
  • "As competition for jobs in all sectors intensifies, employers are looking for more than just the right experience and skills needed for the job. They also want to gauge the potential employee's personal attributes to see if their skills are matched with qualities, such as cultural fit, engagement, likeability, and competence, that will make them an asset to the company. This updated edition of Ultimate Interview highlights these intangible qualities that set one candidate apart from other, equally qualified ones. Each section of the book organizes common interview questions according to specific job types and looks at the thinking behind questions, as well as an effective method of answering. "--
  • "In today's ultra competitive job market, only the best prepared candidates have a chance of standing up to the competition and progressing through the various stages of the interview process. From the best-selling Ultimate series, Ultimate Interview will give you all the background information that you need as well as essential practice to successfully navigate the interview rounds and secure that job offer. Uniquely among interview guidebooks, it organises common interview questions according to specific job types, such as management, sales and marketing, administrative and clerical. Each section looks at the thinking behind the questions, and suggests an effective method of answering by utilising your experience and skill set, and demonstrating your ambitions. This new edition also focuses on how to transfer the crucial softer skills associated with successful interviews such as how to convey your alignment to your future employer's values or demonstrate that you are the most willing rather than just capable candidate. With additional advice on researching the background to a vacancy, and how skills and characteristics can be assessed and developed, this book is a must-have for all serious job hunters"--
