Présentation de l'éditeur

"This book will provide any candidate with a successful game plan to tackle even the most difficult competency-based interview."
--Dennis Donovan, former Executive VP of Human Resources, Home Depot

People interviewing for jobs today often fail because they are using yesterday's strategies. Technology is becoming more sophisticated and virtual assessment centers are being used to assess how strong candidates are in key competency areas. Global competencies are being used to help organizations choose people for international assignments or simply to work on diverse international teams.

The best employers are constantly changing the way interviews are done. This newly revised edition of Competency-Based Interviews offers you a new and more effective way to handle the tough new interviews so that you will emphasize the knowledge, skills, and abilities that you have and that employers demand.

Preparing for a competency-based interview will give you the strategy you need to:
  • Be selected for the most competitive positions
  • Win the best job at a new organization
  • Get a great first job or internship
  • Be chosen for that critical promotion in your current organization
  • Take control of your career path
  • Increase your salary
  • Secure more interesting assignments and more interesting work

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must for anyone trying to figure out what they're doing wrong at interviews 13 janvier 2008
    Par Pam - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
    As a Columbia MBA student, I found Kessler's book really helpful. I've found interviewing at business school very difficult because I'm surrounded by amazingly well-qualified competition! Interviews are one of my weakest points and I've read a bunch of interview guides in the hopes of finding out what I'm doing wrong. Until this book, I found these guides kind of useless and a waste of money (e.g. the Vault Guide to Finance Interviews). But this book was great. It has changed the way I view interviews and has made interviews considerably less scary. While other books talk about what and what not to say, she focuses more on the approach to your answers. I found this more applicable and practical.

    Instead of focusing on you, Kessler focuses on the interviewer. She gives the interviewer's perspective and examples of what the interviewer might have in front of him or her during the interview. This gave me a better idea of what interviewers are looking for and how I should structure my answers. Building answers around competencies has made my answers more strong and concise.

    Kessler also has a section of interview examples and her critiques of the candidate's answers. I recognized a bunch of mistakes I made when I was interviewing for jobs after college. I wish I had this book back then! I'm sure it would have opened a lot more windows of opportunity (or at least ended the job search sooner).

    These kinds of books tend to stress me out. Kessler's writing is clear and the pacing was just right for someone like me. It was easy to absorb the main points and see how I could apply them to myself. I still got a panic-y feel in my stomach, but much less than I usually get. The summary tables at the end of each chapter were great because they helped me make sure I got what I was supposed to get out of each chapter.

    I highly recommend this book. It's helped me get a better idea of why I haven't received offers for jobs I know I was well qualified for. Now instead of just being frustrated about it, I have a way to deal with it!

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 Winning the job war in Cleveland, Ohio 2 juin 2006
    Par P. Urban - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché
    Everyone is afraid of the dreaded job interview. Correctly prepare and you can put your mind at ease. I know because I am a former sweaty-palm interviewee. Through this book ---Competency-Based Interviews---I've found the not-so-common-sense skills that are essential to landing that perfect job, or that first job. Clear, concise, and step-by-step this leads the job candidate through the modern day interview that is assessing your skill set more than your diploma. I've learned how to identify the competency questions that I will be asked in relationship to the job duties and the company culture. During interviews, I can give examples of my winning experiences using the right, active language. And, I can answer the follow up questions that delve deeper. This is a must-keep reference text with easy to use summary tables that allow the reader to quickly locate key questions and answers. ->Paul Urban in Cleveland, Ohio.

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent book with very useful advice 7 avril 2007
    Par Robert H. Welton - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
    I loaned my copy to two friends going to interviews for big jobs.

    Both of them raved about how this book put them in to a fame of mind that made them very comfortable going into and during their actual interviews. It makes you think about questions and areas of your past work expereinces that you should and should not talk about and how to talk about them. Great buy.

    2.0 étoiles sur 5 Halfway Decent ... until it got blatantly sexist 4 mars 2013
    Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
    I can sum up all of the substance of this book in one sentence. Figure out what the primary competencies are for the job you are looking for, then come up with real work examples for those competencies that show: (1) what the problem was; (2) what you did; and (3) and what the result is. Once you get that point, the rest of the book is just repetition on the same them. Half of the book is summaries of each chapter at the end of each chapter (which are almost as long as the chapters themselves), as if they were just trying to fill up space or are targeting people who don't know how to read. But I kept reading anyway, until I got to this passage, at which point I almost tossed my iPad across the room:

    "If you are a woman who wants to interview for a powerful job, consider getting your makeup done, a new suit, new shoes, and your hair done by someone who knows what he or she is doing. If you need to lose some weight, start your diet and exercise program soon enough to make a difference before the interview. Get recommendations for makeup artists, manicurists, hair stylists, personal shoppers, and good places to shop from other people you know who look polished and professional. It just may be worth the investment. If you are a man, please consider making some of the same extra effort, too."

    Apparently, the primary competency for women, in this author's opinion, is still their appearance. While men just need to ... take a shower or something. I find this completely reprehensible in this day and age. While it is true that you want to look polished and professional, that is something that applies equally to men and women. This passage alone made me completely reassess the author's credibility.

    4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great way to prepare for upcoming interview 22 août 2009
    Par Rebecca E. Buster - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché
    I live in Houston and initially talked to the author, Robin Kessler, about doing some practice interviews before an important interview. Because I was temping at the time and couldn't afford it, she suggested I read this book to prepare myself. I wasn't too excited about reading a book, but was very glad that I did. I have never studied so hard for an interview before and didn't really understand the need to prepare myself in such a thorough way. However, it was well worth it-this book was a quick read-broken down into bite size pieces and really helped me come up with a way to take my experience, write it down in an outline, and be able to speak it clearly in an interview setting. I also liked the fact that she suggested looking at the job description to pull key/buzz words out and turn those into competencies to be focused on. I took those competencies and found 2 or 3 examples from my experience and had those examples in mind while in the interview. It worked and I felt prepared. Definitely worth the read and price for any interview setting. Thanks, Robin!
