- Unknown

The purpose of this book is to help hiring managers learn and hone their skills to interview anyone successfully. It was written to be an easy weekend read and a quick reference guide for use just prior to any interview. With repeated use, the techniques learned from this book will become second nature, enabling the "trained" hiring manager to conduct a successful interview using as few as three well-crafted questions targeted to assess the aspect of greatest importance to the case at hand.

After reading this book, hiring managers will appreciate the interviewing process from both sides of the desk. The book covers the interviewer's role as it fosters an understanding of the interviewee's expectations. An effective interview is one in which the interviewer speaks only 20 percent of the time. A powerful tool, one that makes the interviewee sit up at attention, is the interviewer's assertive silence after the interviewee completes answering a question. Most of the time, the honest answer to an interviewer's question is telegraphed before the interviewee says a word. Developing the ability to observe and read the interviewee is an important weapon in the successful hiring manager's arsenal. In addition to teaching the techniques of assertive silence and reading the interviewee, this book offers other benefits; it nurtures self-confidence and the ability to maintain control of the interview.

Interviewing is no different; few individuals look forward to conducting an interview for fear of looking foolish. Once a hiring manager has mastered the techniques in this book, he or she will be confident in the ability to steer the interview and identify the most appropriate candidate.

This book meets the needs the author has identified, addressing many different interview situations. It is written with the busy hiring manager in mind, able to be read quickly and then utilized as a daily business tool. Unlike other books on this subject available in the market today, this book contains no fillers. There is no need for a great deal of searching through the book to find an answer. The author envisions this book will quickly become a well-worn, marked-up business reference positioned on the corner of every desk at all level of management.
