Nonfiction Review: Guide to Interviews

I just finished reading Richard Bolles' guide for resume writing, so his "What Color Is Your Parachute Guide to Rethinking Interviews" was a good companion read, and had considerably more, advice, as well. I do wish he had spent more space covering good thank you letters, but with an appendix on disabilities (a definite self esteem booster), another appendix on salary negotiation, and much more, the book includes plenty of great advice. Bolles focuses on setting up the job interview as a conversation where each party wants to know how well they fit each other. He also provides the most important possible job interview questions and answers. Anyone looking for work should read this book. Although Bolles' excessive and inappropriate use of commas throughout the book did bother me.

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review of it.
