Beschreibung

Current selection processes are not about the best person for the job, they are only about who appears to be the best person for the job. From a job interview we can only tell who interviews best. The person who interviews best and the best person for the job are sometimes very different people. Good workers are kept out of work or denied promotions because they do not understand the selection process and how it works, what it responds to.

There is a lot of advice available for people looking for work. Most of it is opinion, much of it nonsense. There is very little advice based on research. For the first time, specific, step-by-step, easy to follow advice is available to people looking for work. Advice that is based on research, rather than opinion and emotion. When they ask you this… say this…, because on most occasions it will work.

In its previous editions this book has helped tens of thousands of job seekers into work around the world, including many who considered that they were locked out of the employment market. As importantly as helping people into work is, it also helps people maintain their self-esteem as they are going through the process. Your worth as a person, as a worker, is never tested by current selection processes. The worth you take into the room is intact when you leave, as it was never tested. Only your ability to play this game was tested. Do not give your self-esteem to this process, because if you do, you validate an invalid system.

From application through to resume and interview, getting a job is a game. It is hard to be good at a game if you do not know what the rules are. Many good workers do not know what the rules are, and this fact alone will limit their ability to be successful in their job search. For the first time the rules have been laid bare for everyone to see. Not through opinion but through research. When they ask you this… say this… because on most occasions it will be what the interviewer is wanting
