From the Authors

Having conducted many interviews for both selection and promotion purposes over the years for many different clients we have always been astounded by the extent to which people are worried about competency based interviews, and indeed the extent to which some people struggle to respond to them. With a little preparation though, anybody who has the relevant work experience can perform well in these interviews. This led us to deciding to write a book that explains the interview process from the candidate perspective and provide the hints and tips that will help you to do well.

The book is packed with useful hints and tips to guide you through the entire process from researching the organisation, through interview preparation, right through to dealing with the unexpected.
