I do a fair amount of interviewing for my job. I enjoy interviewing people for the positions we have posted. One comment I hear on a fairly regular basis is this: You can't tell how good a candidate is for the job just by their resume.
So many people do not know how to interview.
Too many people show up for interviews having NEVER PRACTICED A WORD of what they are trying to convey.
For most people, this lack of preparation and articulation will cost them the job.
Enter Competency-Based Interviews.
This small book (210 pages) is packed, and I do mean packed, with nuggets, gems, and case studies needed to help the job seeker answer questions well.
There are fabulous step-by-step instructions on assessing jobs, creating interviewing questions (for you to practice), and then coaching feedback on the case studies.
I love this book. It's relevant, practical, and immensely helpful for job seekers and hiring managers as well.
Get it. Read it. Practice. And practice so more. Good luck.
**I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. I was not paid for this review. Views and endorsement are my own. That being said, this is a FABULOUS book. Highly, highly recommend it.
