Item Description...
Outline ReviewMost guidebooks to interviewing job candidates get so bogged down in psychobabble about "personality types" and "character profiles" that they have you terrified that you're going to pick an ax murderer accidentally by the time you hire someone. This short-'n'-sweet 72-page guide cuts out the jargon, and shows you how to manage the position-filling process in three key stages: preparing for interviews (writing the job description and ad, deciding how to recruit, assessing rsums, selecting interviewees and arranging interviews, preparing questions, and honing your listening skills), conducting interviews (evaluating an applicant, guiding the interview, reading body language, and opening and closing the right way), and analyzing interviews (recording impressions, making a shortlist and conducting call-back interviews, matching an applicant to a job, and making a final offer). Throughout, boxed tips; sample job descriptions, rsums and formal offers; handy checklists; and easy-to-follow and adaptable flow charts clarify the interviewing process, and bring it to life. Granted, if you're looking for very specific or in-depth guidance, you might find this book too cursory and general in its approach. But, if you're looking for a thumbnail guide to the basics, it'll do just fine.

It's worth mentioning that the book is part of the "Essential Managers" series by reference publisher Dorling-Kindersley--a series comprising 20 itty-bitty books on business and career topics that range from communication, leadership, and decision-making to the management of time, budgets, change, meetings, people, projects, and teams. Combining the talent of the "For Dummies" book series for breaking down a lot of information into bite-sized bits and sidebars with Dorling-Kindersley's signature design style of crisp, classy graphics on a gleaming white backdrop, the books don't represent the cutting edge of business thinking or reflect necessarily any unique individual perspective. Instead, it's as if someone had collated the best general thinking on these 20 topics, and rolled them out into 72 brightly designed and easy-to-read pages--studded along the way with boxed tips, color shots of a multiracial cast of "coworkers" animatedly hashing through the workplace issues of the day, and, on the last few pages of each volume, a self-test of one's skills in the topic at hand. Again, they're not for anyone who's looking for more in-depth or focused help on any of the covered subjects, but they're perfect as a quick general-interest reference; and, let's face it, they're so damn cute, and look so smart in a neat little stack or row, that probably you'll want to buy a whole bunch to give as gifts to your entire staff or department. --Timothy Murphy

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good Compact Reference  Feb 7, 2006
This is a good guide for people new to recruiting and interviewing candidates for jobs. Although I like some of the other books in the series better, this one is filled with useful tips on the interviewing process, and emphasizes important areas such as preparation, active listening, shortlisting candidates, and asking good (and relevant) questions. The author also discusses some of the pitfalls (especially legal) of interviewing, which is extremely useful. I discounted the book one star for the illustrations, some of which are good, but several of which are confusing at best.

The DK Essential Managers guides are an excellent and easily accessible resource, and I recommend them.
Quick, concise and informative!  Sep 18, 2002
This book is great for anyone who is faced with having to hire or interview a potential employee. The book is short, but rather informative and gets straight to the point. The images are helpful as body language is demonstrated and the tools in the book offer quite a lot of information you can use.
Helpful book!  Jun 19, 1999
This book helped me a lot in recruiting employees for my company: Tradewind Asia (Vietnam)
