About the Series
About the Series
This book is part of the Job Interview Questions series that has more than 75 books dedicated to technical interview questions and answers for different interview subjects and HR-related topics.
This series of books has been written by experienced placement consultants and subject matter experts. Available in paperback and ebook form as well, these IT interview questions will help job aspirants ace their interviews and start their dream career.
I would say that HR is the toughest round in most interviews for technical positions. Even for the non-technical positions, it becomes tough due to a simple reason. We are taught our subject to something like 2-4 years, but we know almost nothing of organizational behavior (which is a subject in management), or teamwork and similar skills. This difference in hard and soft skills is often a major differentiator between the candidate who gets selected and those who face a rejection.
More often than not the students who go to face interviews learn it the hard way. First, they get rejected a few times, and then maybe by trial and error method they guess what might be the correct response to a question. Using this book a lot of time and energy can be saved that way. Besides the mental stigma, pressure or the frustration which comes from not being selected in a job interview can be avoided too. Considering that the book is not priced exorbitantly.
Its a pretty thin volume of 15 chapters that deal with subjects like team-work, decision making, creative and customer service related questions, communication and why the knowledge of the company is needed. The questions that might be asked are more important than the answers provided. Do keep in mind that the answers need to suit your situation, and look genuine. So you will have to work on how you phrase them. The answers which have been provided are just a pointer and they tell the reader what is expected when that question is posed.
Keeping it in libraries where a lot of students can access it would be beneficial. Job seekers or those planning to change/switch jobs, would want to look through this book.
I have tried a few similar books before but on comparing this with the other books I can easily say this is one the best books a person can use to prep for his placement interviews. Ill be having my placement Interviews in the coming week and I feelpretty confident for the HR round. The language used is simple but also very well structured.
HR Interview Questions is a book where you can find critical organisational level questions and solutions with example. This is the perfect guide if you are looking for new opportunities and specially for fresher. It will help you to gain the confidence.
The book is segmented into 15 different part, namely creativity, leadership, teamwork, deadlines and time management, Dedication and attitude, personality, decision making, goals, creative questions, customer service, background and experience, business skills and knowledge, communication, job searching and scheduling and knowledge of the company.
The key difference from other market book is, it has dozens of examples to respond to interview questions.
Perfect book for mental preparation for the interviews.
