    1. I determined that my first post-college job should be away from the West Coast in Chicago and scrambled to get a leg up on the natives. A then-friend recommended a 'consultant,' someone who decided she could rip-off anxious job-seekers by being a style advisor. She got my check so it worked, but her advice belonged in the era of Mad Men. Some of the highlights:'Wear a skirt. It doesn't matter what you wear after you get the job but wear a skirt for the interview. I know, I know, these days it's [...]

    2. I feel like this book could have been cut in halfry wordy with almost too many stories, not all that are even worth reading. I skipped over a ton of stuff. Two very questionable pieces of advice from the author: do NOT shake hands with the interviewer unless he/she attempts to shake your hand first, AND do NOT send a thank you note after the interview. Wow. What would Miss Manners say? Both of these go against all common courtesy. I personally have chosen not to follow this advice. I got way mor [...]

    3. This book doesn't tell you what to say at a job interview, and yet it was way more helpful than any other interview book I've read. The author knows what he is talking about - he has conducted many interviews of all types and knows what hiring authorities are looking for because he himself is one. I learned what really matters during the interview process. Some of the things he said surprised me - they didn't match up with other sources and tips. But I found myself trusting in his words, and ult [...]

    4. Medley's book has excellent tips for job searchers,including a list of questions to ask prospective employers, how to deal with loaded questions, being candid in your answers, a list of commonly asked questions, and much more. He bases his ideas on having conducted many interviews through the years as an attorney, and offers some common sense ways to best represent yourself during an interview.

    5. Helpful tips to consider for job interviews. Talks about how to approach interviews instead of the usual Q and A format of interview-related books. Emphasizes that you want to connect with the interviewer and create a positive subjective feeling, and that the way you say something matters just as much as what you say.

    6. Although this book has been revised, there are better more updated and far less offensive books out there and this book should be avoided at all costs. Why? Read the blog entry for a little more detailtia/2008/02/in-

    7. This is a must read for anyone who is currently going through the interview process. It explains so many things and techniques that interviewers can use to really evaluate a candidate. It is an easy read with great stories so that you don't feel like you are reading a technical how-to book.

    8. I think this book is a must-read for anyone expecting to interview for almost any job. The author speaks form his own experience as an interviewer - a refreshing viewpoint for a topic where most books all say the same thing. Engaging and (for me) eye-opening.

    9. I will give this book 5 stars once I get a job. No, but seriously this opened my eyes to many mistakes I was making in interviews and not even realizing it.

    10. An excellent yet entertaining and practical book on the most feared process in the job search. This is a must read for anyone preparing to interview for a position anywhere.
