As jobs become scarcer, it is important to apply all strategies possible to stand out from the crowd of other applicants. - Jeff Tapper
Perth, Australia (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Jeff Tapper was in charge of a public sector department made up of over 100 staff for 18 years. Throughout that time, he chaired an average of at least 50 job interviews per year, with applicants ranging from fresh graduates to heads of departments. Drawing from his extensive experience, Tapper releases “Gain an Edge at Job Interviews” (published by Xlibris AU), a new guide featuring strategies that will help readers become successful and confident in their interviews.
Tapper has seen many good job applicants fail at the interview stage due to a variety of reasons, including poor preparation, over-confidence, and complacency. In this book, he shares his observations and insights; guiding readers through the interview process and providing them with information that will increase their chances of succeeding. Aptly titled, this manual is designed to help job applicants gain a competitive edge against other applicants.
“As jobs become scarcer, it is important to apply all strategies possible to stand out from the crowd of other applicants,” Tapper says.
“Gain an Edge at Job Interviews” features a sample practice set of over 900 interview questions ordered by common selection criteria, plus 35 common questions and how to answer them. It is an insightful guide for building confidence in applicants and giving them the competitive edge they need.
