Foremost, there is nothing like having all of the answers to all of the interview questions. I have had multiple job interviews and several jobs I didn’t get because of poor answers in the interview, too. All I can think of after every interview is, why did I say that? or why didn’t I tell them that story? Furthermore, being more prepared for these interviews, would have been way more beneficial. In addition, I probably would have gotten a lot more jobs in the past had I been more prepared.
This book will set you up with the information to have more confidence and comfort, also. I am very happy to have read this book and feel more prepared, as well. The confidence I have when I go to any interview now is surprising, but full throttle. I have landed more jobs going through the program with comfort and confidence.

Give me an example of a problem you faced on the job, and tell me how you solved it?
The problem you select to use as an example should be as similar as possible to a problem you are likely to face at your new job. 1) Identify their “pain points” or current challenges you think they might be facing, 2) explain the POSITIVE OUTCOME and MEASURABLE RESULTS you achieved by solving a similar problem at your last job, then 3) get them to agree with you that your experience in that area is exactly what they’re looking for.
Here’s the basic answer formula:
“Sure, at my last job we had a problem where the situation was “X” … the action I took was “Y” … and the positive outcome was “Z” … In an email to the entire team I was praised by Susan, the Project Manager, for solving the problem and cutting costs about 15% for that project. We were also able to deliver in about ⅔ the time it would have taken us otherwise. What I learned from the situation was “ABC.” I think that’s the type of experience you are looking to bring to your team, isn’t it?”
