His book is considered as a useful resource for any person that wants to change his or hers job, and people that followed those advices managed to be hired on the jobs they have dreamed about for years.
According to Robert J. Gerberg, it is important to prepare yourself for any interview, even if you don’t think you have so many chances of being hired, or if you don’t really want that job. Any interview is an experience, and Robert J. Gerberg Jr. tells you what should be learned from those experiences.
As for any test, you will have to prepare your home works early. Think about what the employer wants from you and prepare some answers. The companies want optimistic people, but also motivated, so be sure your answers reflect this attitude. Robert J. Gerberg considers any interview different, but he also presents some questions and patterns that are the same in any circumstance.
Try to answer fast to any question. A candidate that hesitates will almost surely compromise his chances. Robert J. Gerberg Jr. presents some scenarios about possible questions that are usually put in interviews, and by reading those advices, you will be ready for practically any challenge.
Find some time to think about some situations where you handled some delicate situations, or when you have solved difficult problems. It is almost impossible to think about those aspects from home, so it is better to consider those aspects from the start.
Robert J. Gerberg also talks about other common questions that are put during an interview. It is about the defects. Usually, the employee asks the potential candidate about his defects, and the worse answer is “I don’t have any”. If you want to increase your chances of being hired, be sure to think about some minor defects and to minimize their importance since the start. You might also put those defects in a good light. You might say that you are paying too much attention to details, and sometimes you lose time because of this. In the majority of cases, the employer will consider this as a quality. Try to state that you have learned from your mistakes and you have the resources needed to solve your problems.
