The job interview is the single most important prerequisite to getting a job. While you may be talented in writing resumes and letters, conducting research, and networking, you simply must do well during the job interview if you want to get the job offer. But what exactly must you know and do in order to ace the interview? What questions should you anticipate and how well prepared are you to give answers that clearly emphasise your competencies and tell your story of accomplishments? And what questions are you prepared to ask during the job interview? Here is the book that examines the dynamics of interviewing for job seekers. Unlike other books that focus solely on the formal job interview, You Should Hire Met examines two critical interviews in the job search process -- referral interviews and job interviews. Referral interviews open the doors to key employers. When conducted properly, they can lead to the perfect job -- one that is the right fit for you. Indeed, if you are not doing referral interviews, reviews, you are probably conducting a lack-luster job search.
