Jan 19, Jeffrey rated it it was ok Recommends it for: job hunters. Shelves: jobs-and-employment , read-in The authors idea is to sell the interviewer on your story of how you can do the job.
Of course the key for him is to tell the direct provider of a job rather than a headhunter or human resources person. The point is not to answer the stupid interview questions with the "right" answer but to get to the interview and be prepared to use a flow chart and tell people how you can do the job for them.
Its an interesting idea but "seizing" the interview is easier conceptually than in reality. View 1 comment. Apr 16, Alison rated it really liked it.

While it's no longer in print, this book was invaluable in changing my mindset towards my job search. It's a good read for anyone looking for a job. Aug 06, Ebonique Ellis rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-for-little-sisters , favorites , writing. I thought the book was a waste of time and I read it very quickly.
But the notes I took were invaluable, because I ended up with two job offers. The book basically should be rewritten by a psychologist, but the author is actually breaking down how to give the interviewer different opportunities to "think" of you actually doing the job. That way they stop judging you on irrelevant issues and just get back to focus on "can you do the job. After I thought the book was a waste of time and I read it very quickly.
After reading this book I had two interviews and two offers, so it was fantastic. Jul 05, Evan rated it really liked it. The best thing about this book is that this guy hates the gate keepers as much as you do, and offers some solid advice on how to avoid them, even though it's hard.
The problems with this book become evident towards the end. He keeps repeating himself over and over saying the same thing in as many different ways as he can until you want to drill part of your brain out. Then he calls you a lazy cow, over and over and over. What a jerk! Jan 22, Lucas rated it liked it.
I was attracted to this book by the powerhouse articles on Corcodilos' website, and it was slightly disappointing. There were a lot of good ideas in the book, but it was repetitive. Maybe this was done to better drill the concepts into your brain, but I was looking for more insights. Definitely worthwhile despite its flaws. Jul 10, Laura Robb rated it it was ok. Great tips in here for job hunting.
