Recommended Book – Tough Interview Questions and how to Answer Them

There is a mountain of books with similar titles and claims to this one, but this one comes recommended without hesitation by us as we worked with the authors in recruitment campaigns almost every week for five years in the UK, and have extensive first hand experience in their knowledge on this subject. The fact that they were approached by the publisher to write this book is testament to their expertise in recruitment and selection.

Despite the lifting clouds of recession over New Zealand, there are thousands of job seekers out there who haven’t being interviewed for years and dread this barrier between them and their next job. This book isn’t designed to help people bluff their way into a job (otherwise we wouldn’t be promoting it!), but is designed to ensure people present themselves effectively by demonstrating their skills, experiences and potential in a challenging environment.
