Book Description

From Library Journal Two more sources for job hunters. Both are useful, affordable guides to the interview process with different focuses. Fry's emphasis on one aspect of the procedure, the one-on-one interview (i.e., the selection rather than the screening), in a question-and-answer format offers a fresh, active approach to a timely subject. After two introductory chapters of guidelines, the author identifies the toughest themes of a successful encounter and provides proven responses in clear, readable text. In a revision of his comprehensive classic Sweaty Palms ( LJ 7/78), Medley updates his how-to handbook of job interviewing techniques, emphasizing skills and strategic planning. Although still verbose, the guide, however, gives full explanations of a wide coverage of tips from preparation and salary negotiation to issues of sex in the workplace and the handling of questions of discrimination. Most helpful are summary checklists at the end of each chapter for easy scanning and four appendixes, including more than 200 commonly asked questions and questions to ask of the interviewer.
