What does it take to really shine in your interview?

Interviews are your chance to showcase your talents. Get it right and you could nail the job of your dreams, get it wrong and you could be in for a stressful time.

Learn how to recognise your strengths and how to play to them, how to deal with your weak spots and how to avoid panic and clichéd answers. Discover the art of turning every question to your advantage, and learn the secrets behind a brilliant answer, so you will always know the right things to say.

This new edition has been completely updated and refined throughout. Changes include a completely updated chapter on pre-interview preparation, a new section on changing careers and coming back to work after unemployment and clearer information on discrimination acts and how to deal with illegal questioning

Packed with over 200 of the most commonly asked questions and ideal answers, this is the book that will make sure you are ready to handle anything.
