Economic uncertainty, a flat market and corporate downsizing have created an enormous pool of talented job candidates and allowed interviewers to be more selective than ever before. In the past, one or two interviews per candidate were the norm. Now firms average five to ten interviews with an applicant before making a hiring decision. A one-of-a-kind guide for interviewees, this book is based on a survey of Fortune 500 hiring managers and human resource executives who reveal the `inside scoop' on how they size up their candidates. Job seekers will learn how to research the company before stepping inside; what kinds of questions interviewers are likely to ask and how to handle multiple rounds of interviews.
