This book is for every job candidate who thinks "Do you have any questions for me?" marks the end of an interview. It doesn't. In fact, it marks the beginning of the last and perhaps most important interview phase - a phase so important that failing to prepare properly for it can undo all your hard work, including providing great answers to tough questions!

While I'm sure this book will work for some people, the author advocates incredibly pushy sales tactics--talk as if you've already gotten the job, close the interview with references to you starting working there, etc. I wonder if Fry's advice was more applicable in years past, since so much of his advice seems to fall flat in this new economy of depressed salaries, qualified labor supply far outstripping demand, and interviews going no place. (Witness the NYTimes article from March 2013 on empl ...more

For someone in the job market this is an excellent read. Like Fry, I believe that when you interview it's as much about you interviewing the company representative as them interviewing you. You're going to spend lots of time with these people, you want to know how they'll fit into your business model as much as they want to know how you'll contribute to their company success. Following Fry's guidelines to research your market, know as much as possible about it and its employees, and develop smar ...more
Useful is the word which comes to my mind after finishing this read. Plenty of questions which you recognize from those interviews which you failed at, but here they are accompanied finally by some guidance. I don't say the book is giving the exact answers, but it definitely makes you think of your experience and gives it some depth, provides basis for any possible future occasions, which is very good. I did not even bother analyzing each and everyone of those questions, as there were so many si ...more
This was a very helpful guide and has helped me evaluate past performances in interviews as well allowing me to establish preconceived answers to questions that may be asked to me in an interview, and to structure possible questions I could ask a perspective new employer.

I know it is all common sense but I have enjoyed reading what I already know and do when I am in an interview but it has helped me examine my professional life more and I am working on writing out answers to possible questions s

Pretty much a rehash, sometimes word for word, of 101 Great Answers to the Toughest Interview Questions. I would recommend reading Toughest Interview Questions before an interview and skipping this if you don't have the time, however the Appendix B in the back of 101 Smart Questions, which is basically just a long list of different categorized questions, can be a good reference for your pre-interview preparation.

This book had a lot of good information about questions to ask to see if a job/company is a good fit for you and about how to handle yourself and answer some interview questions.

Probably the best interview prep book I have ever read. Contains a great set of prep questions to get you ready.

In many ways redundant (yet also inferior to) the 101 Answers to the Toughest Questions book that seems to be his mainstay.
