Job Interviews: 10 Steps to Success! Pocket Job Series No. 4.
Lindgren, Amy
This book is the fourth in a series of six pocket-sized books written for career changers and laid-off workers. Each book is written at a 7th- to 10th-grade reading level and contains examples, hands-on self-discovery exercises, and step-by-step advice for a successful job search. This book provides a step-by-step process for succeeding in any interview. Chapter 1 describes what an interview is, its importance, and types of interviews. Chapter 2 details a 10-step success plan. The five steps before the interview are as follows: (1) research the company; (2) identify one's weaknesses; (3) prepare questions and answers; (4) practice for the interview; and (5) prepare for the meeting. These three steps at the interview are explained: wait for the interviewer, meet the interviewer, and handle the interview. The two steps after the interview are follow up and negotiate the offer. Chapter 3 offers some tips related to body language and answering and asking questions. Chapter 4 reviews the 10-step plan. Other contents include a bibliography of nine helpful books for job seekers and an index. (YLB)
