Kessler, (business and professional communication, U. of Houston-Downtown) helps readers learn how to interview more effectively and demonstrate that they are the best job candidate. She outlines changes occurring in interviewing at top organizations, especially how they are using competency-based systems to select employees, and includes a list of core competencies. She details what today's interviewers are looking for, how to emphasize competencies to match employers' needs, and how to develop a plan to ensure good performance in every interview. She also explains how to answer questions about interest in the position, salary, and strengths and weaknesses, as well as how to describe oneself; describes case studies of interviews and examples of how a typical interview progresses, with answers to questions and coaching comments; and discusses interview technology, global competencies, follow-up and negotiation, managing a career in a competency-based organization, and using competency-based resumes for the next interview.
