The author of this book is an English teacher, which is a great person to have providing advice on some of the basics of interviewing that don't seem as basic when English isn't your first language. She covers a range of important topics; researching a company, how to answer specific questions, etiquette, the importance of YOU asking questions and much more. I particularly like that she emphasizes the importance of practice. If you want to get ahead, read this book and practice, practice, practice.

Although the step-by-step interview guide is designed for English as a second language learners, it's also beneficial for anyone seeking employment. Helpful tips include keeping the focus on helping an employer, the importance of researching the company before the interview, and roleplaying the interview with a friend or family member. The sample interview questions at the end of the book are a sweet bonus.
