The aim of this book is to explain and imbibe in the mind of the reader the various aspects of interviews so that the reader may attempt for excellence in their career in general and interview in particular. The book covers the total gambit and details of all interviews (cloud of interviews).
Segment one of the book, consisting of chapter 1 deals, with, briefly, the total career counseling and planning to explain and show the position and importance of interview in total career planning. Segment two, consisting of chapters 2 and 3, classifies all the interviews as ‘interview categories’, ‘interview styles’ and ‘interview types’ and explains their relative importance, uses and preparation tips. Segment three, consisting of chapters 4 and 5, illustrates various techniques, preparations, processes, stages and components of interviews, to be followed before the interview, during the interview and after the interview and by both, the interviewee (candidate) and interviewer (employer) so that the net outcome is win-win situation for both (employer and candidate), i.e. the candidate gets a satisfying career/job and employer gets a suitable employee.
The book focuses adequately on the body language and non-verbal communications, which are, often, more important than verbal communications during the interview. It also summarizes most of the points discussed in the form of “Dos” and “Don’ts”.
