Chances are -- unless, perhaps, you're Paris Hilton -- you've had to interview for a job at some point in your life. Employment interviews are a fact of life, as sure as bad weather and often as welcome. That's especially the case for individuals who have pursued professional careers as lawyers, licensed brokers, accountants, nurses, writers or other roles requiring special training. For them, the job interview is an unavoidable rite of passage, as essential to survival as food and water.So when the professional goes in for a job interview, the stakes are high. And things aren't getting any easier. Professionals today are facing off against more competitors for a shrinking number of jobs. They've got to scramble in a Google-paced world where the rules can change as fast as a text message. They desperately need an edge. But they're also busy. They don't have time for a tome on the fine art of interviewing. They don't have the patience for Dr. Seuss-style books best suited to college students seeking their first job. They need a survival guide. This book is for them.The Underground Guide to Job Interviewing for the Working Professional talks to professionals in their own language. Structured loosely as a coaching session in which a recruiter prepares the reader for an upcoming interview, it unabashedly embraces the predicament of the job seeker. Alternately authoritative and subversive, it gives a no-holds-barred account of the hurdles a job candidate faces when he or she goes into battle against unfair, inept or clueless interviewers. At the same time, it objectively explains the job interview process, and includes numerous headings and subheadings for easy reference and comprehension.
