It's always nice to get another perspective on the process of hiring new employees, and I have found this book to be very helpful. I think the reason it ranks as my favourite interview book is due to the fact that it addresses the three points of hiring, which are:

1. Is the candidate able to do the job?
2. Is the candidate willing to do the job?
3. Is the candidate going to be manageable?

In an age where true references are not really available due to company restrictions on releasing data on emplo
A few days after being promoted into my first management position I needed to hire someone, and needed some guidance. This book gave me the basic information to conduct thorough interviews and a philosophy/structure to start the process. In the intervening years, it's also served as a way to prepare to be interviewed... when I can answer the questions in this book clearly I am much more prepared and comfortable sitting on the "other side of the table."
Before I read this book, 15 years ago, I thought I knew how to interview people. I was mistaken.

Mr Yate described a simple process of matching resume to job, and then planning the interview skeleton to clarify specific things. It changed my mind about this critical business practice.

If anyone ever gets hired again in this country, the person hiring should dust off this book first and prepare like a professional.

If you are a manager this book offers lots of information on making better and more informed hiring decisions. As a candidate it is just as important as you can see what to look for and what skills you should possess/show that you are able to do the job. (Kindle)

This is a great reference book for anyone doing interviewing or hiring in any size business. I highly recommend its practicality and simplicity to help in the interviewing and hiring processes.

My first book on interviewing skills. Lots of insight for the in-experienced interviewer, and real world techniques I'm excited to try out.
Hope Baugh
Practical tips and good philosophical food for thought for both sides of the interview table.
More useful for me but not as well written as the last one, still looking for what I need.
This was just okay. The other hiring books I've read are way better.
Good Resource book for interview question, approach, etc
