Finally finished it. Always a good feeling to get through something you never thought you would. I always appreciate books written by psychologists, as they look at things from different angles (at least there's a great attempt to), leaving nothing to chance. When Dr Powers says he wants to help you win it, it's definitely not a false promise!

I really like the wittiness as well as the insights presented. I haven't looked at the toolkits, but I'm sure i'll get it done. What I took home? Look at a

A friend gave me this book to read because I've been in a job for eight years that I've been happy with for six of the years and not so much that last two. I was browsing the newspaper...I know kinda old fashioned...for a spark of inspiration to move on when I spoke with her about my discontentment and she recommended this book.

Dr. Paul Powers gave me the confidence that I needed to get out there dispite what I viewed as many flaws in my past career experience. The biggest one was losing 13 yea

This book was interesting because it approaches interviews from the prespective of a salesman. There were many things that I kind of skipped over, but I liked the advice it gave on "looking for objections" and "closing the interview". Interviews for teaching are unlike any others, so when I looked over the list of interview questions at the end, I knew I would never ever hear any of those questions in teaching interviews. However, it did make me more aware of thinking of all possible questions b ...more

Fast-paced, with no fluff, this book shows you how to have a great answer for the most difficult interview questions, social networking mistakes that will hurt your job hunt and career, and more. Jeff Taylor, the founder of Monster.com, praised that Winning Job Interviews “prepares success-minded people for that crucial encounter with great advice, helpful tips and…a winning attitude.”

Thoroughly unimpressed. This book covered some interesting things but didn't really answer many of the question I had about what to expect in interviews. Most of the advice was common sense material.

This book is a good place to start. I liked the section on references. The author makes some good recommendations. Otherwise, much of the rest of the book is pretty commonsensical.

Roadblock #5: It's Unpredictable
By and large, human beings don't like surprises. I know that I don't. Okay, maybe I like that rare piece of unexpected good news or a letter from a friend or a thoughtful thank-you. But I'm willing to bet that people in funny hats jumping out of dark closets are responsible for more heart attacks than expressions of unbridled delight. When the doorbell rings late at night, I'm under no illusion that it's the Publisher's Clearing House Prize Patrol!
This, most likely, goes back to our caveman past when a big, exciting surprise was apt to be something like an 800-pound,snarling, saber-toothed tiger about to rip the head from our shoulders. Surprises were usually bad news. (Think about this the next time you're crouching in the dark in somebody's front hall closet with their raincoats and umbrellas.)”
