With the job market more competitive than ever, candidates need to possess the useful knowledge of current interview practices prior to their job interviews. A consulting Industrial/Organizational Psychologist, Dr. Lawrence O’Leary, noticed a growing trend in the format many organizations were utilizing when looking for new hires.

Upon further research, Dr. O’Leary found 76% to 95% of Fortune-1000 organizations report using the same competency based interview format to fill jobs. With his findings, he realized he could greatly inform job seekers what to expect in interviews and how to properly prepare for them which are found in his new book, “5 Steps to Take Before Your Next Job Interview.”

When readers complete the book, they will possess a-number-of valuable tools to use in preparing for a job interview including:

  • Awareness of what interviewers are looking for
  • Knowledge of the major format that characterizes many of the questions asked
  • Straight forward list of action steps to prepare for interviews
  • Familiarity with the other tools and tests utilized in the interview process
  • Review of the major types of interview errors that Dr. O’Leary and other interviewers have observed

Veterans will also greatly benefit from the book with an entire chapter devoted exclusively to them that showcases and demonstrates how Veterans have the ability to present the value of their specific military experiences for specific civilian jobs.

“Whether you are a new graduate looking for your first job, an experienced person between jobs or if it’s been years since your last interview, there is useful information for you,” said Dr. O’Leary. “I have written this book to use my decades of experience in interviewing and employment testing to tear back the curtain of mystery about today’s employment interview.”
