Boost Your Interview IQ – Second Edition (white cover – published – 2012) – for a quick brush up on Behavioral Interviewing as well as other questions. It’s a quiz and you determine which answer is the strongest answer. This book is not specifically geared toward law enforcement – it is about “behavioral interviewing.”
From someone who really liked the book —
Before I read Carole Martin’s book, I must admit that I was lost when it came to interviews. As a young lawyer with three years of experience in my field, I truly thought that I knew everything it took to effectively express myself and market my skills to a potential employer. I had conducted countless client interviews myself, and so I thought.
I had most question and answer techniques down to a science.
But when I flunked my first major interview for a dream job with a prestigious employer, I realized that I needed help from an expert.
In hindsight, I wish I had sought out this information earlier. Perhaps because I was too accustomed to being sought out by others as an expert in my own field of law that I did not realize I needed an expert’s advice on basic interview techniques.
I am thankful that I contacted Carole Martin and found her book “Boost Your Interview IQ.” I feel that I have begun the journey towards interview success. In my opinion, learning real life interview techniques should not be about “gimmicks” or “tricks”.
Instead, Carole Martin provides a wide-range of examples that point you in the right direction.
You will learn through a question and answer technique designed by Carole that will give you a thorough understanding of the basics.
Reading this book is the beginning of a journey that will equip you with the essentials of interviewing.
So if you are curious about how to interview, then I recommend you read this book first. The rest is up to you!”
