Summary of 101 Smart Questions to Ask on Your Interview
Before your job interview, know why you want the job. When you get there, know how to answer — and ask — for it.
Career development expert Ron Fry focuses on how to prepare for a job interview and how to conduct yourself during the interview. While he covers some of the same ground he's covered in some of his other books and as well as the territory in other career books, such as What Color Is Your Parachute, Fry focuses helpfully on a critical job-finding skill - asking the right questions during your job interview. He tells you how to respond when the interviewer asks you, "Do you have any questions?", because your response indicates your level of interest in the job. Besides listing questions to ask or to modify to meet your own circumstances, Fry provides helpful preparatory questions you should ask yourself to clarify what kind of job you really want. getAbstract recommends this book to job seekers at the middle or lower management level. By the time you get to the executive suite, you'll know what else to ask.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to prepare for a job interview;
- What questions to ask on a job interview so you get hired, and get the best deal; and
- What questions not to ask - because they will kill your chances.
