"It’s the person with the right preparation who gets the job", declares the author. "I have interviewed thousands of job-seekers and have noticed one common shortcoming—lack of preparation."

In today’s fiercely competitive job market, it is not necessarily the best candidate who lands the job, but the one who is best prepared. This book will help you get superbly prepared. Written by a practising manager who has been involved in recruiting people for more than a decade, this book is a practical working guide, tailor-made for Indian conditions.

Here’s what you will learn:

How to locate the right job opportunities: Remember, hardly 30% – 40% of available jobs are actually advertised. This book will show you how to tap 100% of the options.

How to apply for the job you want: How to obtain an application form, and how to fill it up to make the maximum impact.

How to prepare your job-kit: How to draft and present an effective resume. How to correspond effectively.

Preparing for the selection interview: Types of interview: What they are and how they are conducted. Questions you are likely to be asked and how to handle them successfully. How to be well-groomed, including the recommended dress-code for both men and women. What material to carry to the interview.

How to score high in the interview: How to deal with stress and nervousness. How to handle poorly-phrased questions. How to manoeuvre the interview to your advantage and put your best foot forward. How to close the interview.

Scoring in other selection methods: *Campus recruitment *Group discussions *Extempore speech *Selection tests *Trade tests.

This book is chock-full of sure-fire tips, check-lists (separate ones for men and women!) model resumes, sample letters to employers, lists of most frequently asked questions, special tests for I.Q. comprehension, recall...

Tackling all the crucial aspects in detail, this book equips you systematically and expertly for a successful job search. By combining rare insights with practical commonsense tips and tactics that really work, the author has distilled his experience as seasoned interviewer for several national and international organisations into a lucid, easy-to-follow, authoritative guide to help you get the job you want.
