What is a job interview anyway? Is it an objective examination of your experience, skills, and work ethic? Not quite. It’s a screen test. You’re the actor. In this bestselling guide, Jeff Allen, the world’s leading authority on the interview process, shows you how getting hired depends almost completely on the "actor factor." If you know your lines, perfect your delivery, and dress for the part, you’ll get hired. If you don’t, you won’t.

Covering questions on everything from personal background to management ability and technological know-how, he gives you a fail-safe delivery format for responding the right way every time. This new edition has been updated to guide you through today’s changing job market, and includes an entirely new chapter on dealing with the latest open-ended interrogation questions. If getting a job is playing a part, this is your starring role. Follow the director, and you’ll be a superstar!
