The most crucial part of any job search is knowing how to respond to the toughest interview questions, because it's not necessarily the best candidate who gets the job – it's the best interviewee! In Best Answers to the 201 Most Frequently Asked Interview Questions, career experts Matthew and Nanette DeLuca reveal the secret motivation behind every kind of question an interviewer asks, and prepares you to answer them all. Never again be at loss for words when an interviewer hits you with an icebreaker, thought provoker, curve ball, stress tester, or even an illegal question that shouldn’t be asked – but must be answered.
Today, it's more important than ever to have the right answers at your fingertips, because with hundreds of candidates for every job opening, every word counts. It's important to sound more flexible, and less overtly curious about opportunities for promotion or advancement, than it has been in the past. Also, many more candidates are coming from a position of unemployment. The DeLucas address how to explain gaps on your resume, how to gracefully address a lost job, what to say when they ask "what you’re looking for," and how to tactfully discuss salary requirements. They teach you to take control of the image you present, avoid traps, and come out on top in these tough times.
