In the very first Parachute-branded book to focus on interviewing, Bolles merges decades of experience with the latest studies and job-market statistics to create an all-in-one guide for the whole process, from pre-interview research to elevator pitches to salary negotiation. This slim volume contains a huge amount of information distilled down to its very essence, revealing the three most important things about interviews, the only five questions you need to know the answers to, and other succinct gems that will send job-hunters confidently into interviews armed with everything they'll need to impress--and land their dream job"--
