Customer Reviews:

  • Excellent advice!
    Going on job interviews is among the most stressful life events (tied with divorce, according to one survey). Beshara's plan is air-tight in terms of getting (and keeping) jobseekers pumped up about their job search. Optimism is everything, and Beshara delivers!

  • Acing the Interview
    The title Acing the Interview doesn't really describe the breadth of knowledge Tony Beshara communicates in his latest book. If one does not venture to the Table of Contents, the book's cover tagline stating its inclusion of "450 Sample Questions" sounds very much like a dozen other self-help books for job seekers. But make no mistake, Tony is not pandering to the insecurities of those suffering from interview phobia with a warmed over collection of typical interview questions. As in his first book, "The Job Search Solution," Tony wants you to look inside yourself, and to question the common precepts about the job search process. Tony's "questions" include those you ask yourself and those you ask the employer, in addition to the questions asked of you in the interview.

    Tony leverages his experience from interviewing more than 24,000 candidates in a 30-year career to make you understand that `acing the interview' is more about the research, planning, and practice you execute before the interview than it is about regurgitating rote answers in the interview.

    Acing the Interview is a very strong sophomore performance from the acknowledged King of Recruiters. Those who viewed any of Tony's appearances on the Dr. Phil Show will recognize his conversational tone and sincere passionate concern for matching employers to employees. Not many recruiters can claim more than 6,700 placements in their career. Unlike most authors in this genre, who have very little, if any, real world experience in getting a job - Tony has done it, and is still doing it, every day.

  • Best book on interviewing I have found.
    I thought this book was great. Much more realistic than many of the others I have looked at. He advocates a very aggressive approach, which can be a little scary, but the fact that he hammers that idea home throughout the book, and gives enough detail for you to understand WHY it works gave me the confidence to use some of those more aggressive techniques. And yes, it really does work! I just completed my 10th interview with a company and got the job! Every interview went well, and using Tony's advice I knew exactly where I stood after each interview....more info

  • Excellent Book and Interviewing Advice
    Interviewing is one of the most stressful things a person can do. I have been out of the workforce for 3 years. My children are grown and I decided to go back into the field of Administrative Secretary or Executive Assistant. Something I have always enjoyed and never got bored. Just being off the market for only 3 years, there were so many things that had changed about interviewing and I was extremely nervous about this. Of course all this information was coming from my family and friends. I know they all meant well, but I needed an expert. While searching on Amazon, I came across the book by Tony Beshara, "Acing the Interview." After reading this book, I have never felt the confidence in myself that I feel right now about going on a professional interview. I didn't even feel this relaxed 10 years ago. Tony Beshara's book is absolutely easy reading, down to earth and straight to the core of what you need to know about interviewing. I would recommend this book to anyone that is struggling with the thought of going on an interview, whether you have been out of work awhile or just ready for a change.

    Sincerely,

  • Excellent advice!!
    By Marilee Johnson

    Interesting book. I jumped on the first job offer after college but was burnt out in less than a year. I like reading and was strolling through Barnes & Nobles when I came across a number of books on how to get a job. I started thinking about changing jobs and ended up going on a few interviews. It was very frustrating. One part of me wanted to just quit and stay at that same lousy job but the rest of me knew I was too young to give up.

    Then I saw Dr. Beshara on the Dr. Phil show. Something in his energy and sincerity made me know that what he was saying was true. If he could get that loser Dr. Phil threw at him a job, he could get me one. I bought the Job Search Solution and couldn't put it down.

    Have you ever seen those TV shows that reveal how magic tricks are performed? That's what this book is like. There's no rabbit in the hat, the lady really isn't floating in mid air, employers hide behind a bunch of smoke and mirrors. Yet if you look closely, like Tony teaches you, it all makes sense.

    It's crazy, but there really is a method to the madness - just as Tony tells you. The key is working your plan and staying motivated.

    WARNING: don't skip past his chapters on personal motivation. You may think you're pumped up at first, but finding a good job takes time and you have to stay pumped.

    I got a good job. I did interview for a couple of others that seemed even better, but they couldn't get their act together so I think they probably weren't really that good. After reading Dr. Beshara's book it all made sense. Buy this book - it'll be the best career choice you ever made.

  • Do Yourself A Favor, and Read This Book
    In my opinion, this is the kind of book that should be given out in every university on graduation day in addition to diplomas and the optimistic fanfare. Since I left my own university life many years ago, I have consistently wrestled with understanding the complex job hunting and interviewing process required of anyone interested in forging their own professional path. My strategy up to this point has unfortunately relied on the "Wing-and-a-Prayer" method, which, after reading Tony Beshara's book, I see was a significant mistake I'm now working to correct. One of the most important concepts he expresses, and one I have not seen in many other books I've read on this topic, is the idea of taking the emotion out of the search. Rejection is a standard part of this process, and one that causes most people to stop looking at all. Beshara's point is that job hunting is nothing but one big numbers game. Once you can understand that, you empower yourself to weather the heavy storm of criticism and obstacles you will encounter along the way to finding a well-paid and satisfying position on the stepping stones of building a career. Taking the emotion out of this endeavor leaves you with a process that will ultimately get you what you want with less emotional anchor dragging behind and slowing down your forward motion. As Beshara says, "Pay attention to the process, and the results will take care of itself." For the first time in my working history I no longer feel afraid of what I must face in landing my next position. I think you will discover this book to be equally engaging and profoundly illuminating. Good luck with your own search. I know Tony Beshara's book will give you exactly the right tools you are looking for to reach your professional destination as quickly as possible. ...more info
  • Cuts to the chase with total honesty and accuracy!
    Thank goodness I watched Dr. Phil the day Tony Beshara was featured. Finally someone in the placement industry had the guts to tell it straight without all the "crap." Government work programs have people on computers sending out resumes online all day long - seldom making any progress except with the lowest paying jobs, if at all. Hotjobs and Monster are broadcasting resumes to hell and back, and unless you're background is in in the healthcare, IT/high tech, scientific arena, it's not likely you'll score a position.

    Tony provides the insider advice, step by step , inch by inch. Make the calls, follow the schedule, say it this way, leave this out, follow up this way, get the job. Thank you Dr. Phil for featuring Tony, and thank you Tony for having the courage to share the golden stairs instead of the "fools gold.!"...more info
