Good Monday morning,
In an economic system without loyalty, you should always be interviewing. My updated bestseller Ladders Interviews Guide is a quick 90-minute read that shows you how to interview well, triumph over the 49 questions you’ll be asked in interviews, and arms you with 25 great, effective questions for you to look smart asking your future boss.
Because you never know when good opportunities may fall into your lap, you should keep your interview skills sharp. That’s why interviewing with other companies throughout your career is lifestyle insurance for you and your family. Ladders Interviews Guide is a good 90-minute investment in your future, and the companion to my Amazon bestselling Ladders Resume Guide.
Based on my 15 years of experience writing America’s largest career advice newsletter, and the feedback from our 100,000 HR professionals, recruiters, and hiring managers, Ladders Interviews Guide provides easy and effective advice for fast-rising and mid-career professionals like you. Here’s what you’ll learn:
49 interview questions they’ll ask you. I explain the rising popularity of behavioral interviewing and what it means for your job search. Step by step, I walk you through seven categories of behavioral questions and provide detailed insights into how your answers should position your candidacy for success.
25 questions you’ll ask them. Active listening is a critical skill for understanding your interviewer’s needs and succeeding in the interview. I detail 25 questions you can ask any company and any hiring manager, to gain the insights you need into a company’s operations and culture. In arming you with all the questions you’ll ever need in a job interview, I’ll advise that you should never run out of questions with an interviewer, only the time to ask them.
We were born in tribes, and we work in cubicles. Interviewing is, by its very nature, a strange and uncomfortable experience. Interviews are a relatively recent development in business history and confound humans’ social expectations. I’ll explain how your interview anxieties come from your human nature — no one is “bad” at interviewing because humans weren’t designed to perform well in situations with strangers. And I’ll show you the specific steps to take to overcome your interview anxieties through preparation and familiarity.
Are flip-flops optional? I review best practices in dress code, manners, and follow-up for professionals interviewing in 2020. I describe the Visual Interview and what it can reveal about your future employer, and guide you through an effective thank you process.
Ladders Interviews Guide presents an effective, tested, expert guide to interview success from the leaders in $100K – $500K jobs. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it, as much as I enjoyed writing it.
I’m rooting for you!
