If you're looking for a job, you want things to go smoothly, right? You want to do the work it takes to get your name out there and you want some good responses back.

But what if you're not sure about the next step to take?
What if you've been out of the job market for more than five years, employed or not?
What if you've tried over and over again and just can't seem to get a phone call?

It's tough. This whole interviewing process is a complex, cold, and frustrating experience that most people can't stand. This is exactly the reason I decided to tackle it, systematize it, and bring it to you.

I'm coming to you with career development tools, interview tips, and job grabbing processes to help you get the interview flow down pat. And don't worry, this is not PhD level confusing tactics (though there are ninja-nuggets of goodness inside).

I took an experimenter's role when researching this Interview Action series of books. Yes, I made cold-calls to recruiters to get advice. Yes, I applied for positions I was not "qualified" for (and still got the interviews). Yes, I used my years of psychometric testing data and surveys from richardstep.com to refine my approaches.

And yes, you will get at least 1 big 'ah-ha' from this series of books that will make a difference in your interview mastery skill-set. You just have to be willing to look for it.
