What Readers are Saying
Working as a recruiter, I've dug into multiple books on interviewing techniques so I can provide worthwhile advice to my clients. The STAR Interview paints a far clearer picture in the head of the reader of how to properly sell yourself in a job interview, and comes with very concrete examples and pieces of actionable advice. It's very thorough and doesn't leave you with any "but what about...?" 's. Definitely recommended reading for anyone going into an important job interview.
I highly recommend reading this book from start to finish. Out of all the writings I've ever come across regarding the STAR interviewing method, this has been the most comprehensive. It encourages readers to actively participate through self-reflection while providing a ready to go template with relatable examples. What I loved the most was one of the last sections that encouraged self-care. So besides gaining a more comprehensive understanding about how to approach interviewing, I got some life tips!
"Since being introduced to the STAR method, many of what were previously my weakneses, have become strengths. By implementing some of the techniques I was able to land the job I always almost got, but somehow fell short. I’m not an avid ebook reader, but the clear and applicable approaches to improving interview skills and interpersonal interaction have led me to a better version of myself. Now that I’ve embarked on the career of my dreams, all I can say is that the future has never looked brighter!"
