Learn the secrets to excelling at interviews, direct from top interviewers and recruiters, in this conversation between James Reed, chairman of recruitment specialists REED and the former Mrs Moneypenny, Heather McGregor, the owner of Taylor Bennett, the executive search firm.
You can’t prepare an answer for every interview question. So, of the thousands of questions they might ask, which ones will they ask?
After extensive research among hundreds of interviewers and thousands of interviewees, finally here’s the talk based on the book Why You? that will give you the answer.
Why You? is based on direct input from top interviewers in REED’s unrivalled recruitment network. It offers powerful preparation techniques, the lowdown on how to answer the most common questions and – above all – how to adopt a winning mindset at interview, one that will help you succeed on the day.
From classic questions like ‘tell me about yourself’ and ‘what are your greatest weaknesses?’ to puzzlers like ‘sell me this pen’ and ‘how many traffic lights are there in London?’, James Reed reveals what interviewers are really asking.
