Those pesky mind blowing questions ...came very easy to answer
I downloaded your book the day before an interview, read through the entire book once. Went on the interview and for some reason was much more comfortable with the interview.
Although I didn’t get the job I do believe what I read in your book help me be a little more prepared.
Then a week later and after I had time to read your material again I was interviewed for a full time (with benefits) position and I must say… those pesky mind blowing questions about my character and my weaknesses and strengths and where do I want to be in 5 years came very easy to answer.
Yesterday I was offered the job and I start Monday!!!
PS: This was the first time I ever sent the “Thank you for the interview letter” and when the HR person called to offer the job she thanked me for the letter. I think that had to have been a help. I sent it address to everyone who was in the interview room.
Hired at 63 ...top of the pay scale
I just wanted to let you know that even at age 63, I was hired this week for a state government position, and almost at the top of the salary range for the job.
I had applied for several jobs over the past couple months but this was the one I really wanted and the only one where I was given an interview.
Reading your guide really raised my confidence level during the panel interview and it was one of the best I have ever experienced.
I start Monday! Thank you so much!
I had several departments at Kendle make me an offer
“Hello Don, I just wanted to let you know that I got the job at Kendle International. I just wanted to thank you for The Complete Interview Answer Guide.
It truly helped me land the job that I really wanted. As a matter of fact, I had several departments at Kendle make me an offer. I highly recommend your study guide. Thank you."

I landed a wonderful position
“Dear Don, I just wanted to shout out a huge, "Thanks!" to you for putting out The Complete Interview Answer Guide.
I landed a wonderful position with a very well-known educational institution right after graduating from graduate school.
The small price of the guide pales in comparison to the happiness and joy that will fulfill my life in years to come.
I'm so pleased and satisfied with your services. Thanks a million!"
Offered the position without a second interview
After graduating from college 28 years ago, I interviewed with a company and landed my first job, it's been my only job and interview in 28 years.
Working as a manager for the last 20 years I've conducted many interviews but was never on the other end until last Thursday.
To prepare myself, I set a strategy based on your guidance. I want to thank you for your efforts which prepared me for everything I faced during my 6 hour interview with 6 different managers.
Late last evening, I was offered the position without a second interview and was told I was by far the most prepared and unscripted candidate they had interviewed in years.
Your guide is EXCELLENT preparation ... tells what the interviewer is looking for
"Don, I recently purchased your guide.
There were about 12 questions that were asked during the interview that were in your guide verbatim!!!
Needless to say, I did extremely well in my interview and have now been promoted.
Your guide is EXCELLENT preparation and it gives us not only the RIGHT answer, but what the interviewer is looking for.
Now, I am using your guide to interview my replacement!"

They were so impressed with my answers to their questions that I was offered the job at the end of the interview
"That never happened to me before!
I have been in HR for over 11 years and thought I knew everything, but after several interviews and no offers, I purchased your guide.
It was very detailed and helped me prepare.
I had two interviews after purchasing your guide and I now I have two offers.
Thank you so much for writing such a good and detailed guide. I will recommend it to everyone."
I got confidence in myself for the first time
"Don, GUESS WHAT? I got the JOB....
Really your service is kick a**.
I apologize for my french... I don't know how to say THANK YOU for all the support.
I got confidence in myself for the first time, and this is my dream career job I am very happy."
Your guide was the best value of all.
“Don, I must tell you having not been on an interview in over 20 years, I would have approached things differently before reading your guide.
Having your guide gave me the “Interview Confidence” I had lost over that time.
Considering all of the money spent on my job search thus far, your guide was the best value of all.”
$50K job in less than 90 days
"I purchased your book after an 18 month job search.
I was skeptical about buying the book, but it turned out to be a good investment.
I read the book, did the research and today I received a $50,000+ job offer --all in less than 90 days, an excellent return on the money spent.
Thank you for putting all the info in one place, it really made a difference."
Offered me TWO DIFFERENT JOBS!!!
"You're not going to believe this...they actually offered me two positions!
I purchased your guide last Tues., but I had two job interviews.
The second interview went FANTASTIC!! Not only did they want me to come join the company, but they offered me TWO DIFFERENT JOBS!!!
Thank you so much for this wonderful guide. I have already printed my own copy (bound and all). Take care!"
Got the job!
I don't have enough words to appreciate your guidance and advice during my interview process.
You have been one email away throughout the interviewing process and I got the job.
Thank you very much."

It got me to my third interview. I had some questions about the third interview and emailed you for some answers, you were right on the money!
Thanks to your help and book, I just landed a 6 figure dream job!"
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Your guide have helped me to secure prestigious position
Your Complete Interview Answer Guide has been an extremely valuable tool in my search for an opportunity within my own organization.
I work for a Fortune 10 company.
Recently completing my MBA and studying your guide have helped me to secure prestigious position within a very select leadership program within my organization.
Your guide helped me verbalize my knowledge, skills, and abilities to my interviewers with a relaxed professional demeanor. Thank you for that.
I will continue to refresh my eyes with the knowledge that you have laid out in your guide.
I am now positive and ready for any tough questions tossed my way
I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for all the really excellent tips for interviewing.
It has been a long time since I have had to seek employment. I am well educated with lots of experience in my field, well spoken and some amazing accomplishments, but I have been dreading the thought of staring across a desk at someone asking me questions.
My main problem is when I used to do interviews I would get nervous and succumb to "ramble on syndrome" lol. I am now positive and ready for any tough questions tossed my way.
I took 50 leaps of progress when I...
Don, First, thank you for framework. Your presentation of this subject matter absolutely offers me a usable understanding about the perspective of the interviewer.
I have been tenaciously seeking this understanding for over a year. You are correct in saying that this knowledge is the basis from which you can be confident to answer any question.
By building your presentations upon this framework, your materials are indeed tools which any person can pick right up and utilize from any point in their learning process.
Second, thank you for your methodology. You go beyond just providing a framework tool. You provide the essential "how to" use it examples.
Throughout your book and your sequence of videos/posts, you maintain a continuous weave of ALL the essential ingredients. I find this very helpful to hold in my mind the things I do know while working on some sticky points.
Third, the thing for which I am most thankful are the examples where you go beyond telling us "describe a specific detailed example of how you did this, then this & that".
I took 50 leaps of progress when I saw someone, (in video or writing) showing a "here's how its done, word for word, watch how I do this example".
Overall, I have poured through every bit of your material. Thank You for being available.
Best Wishes to you also and all your team of coaches at Job Interview Tools.
Hired for two jobs!!!!
I have great news - I have been hired for two jobs!!!! I thought about what you said in one of your previous emails - that I may be continuing to face rejections due to the particular types of jobs I for which I had applied.
When the recruiter contacted me I suggested offering a lower bid as that would bump my chances of getting the contract.
This move paid off and I am excited to have the clinical refresher time through IHS prior to resuming practice in Minnesota. The Hackensack position is a three month locum tenens slot with an option to extend to six months or permanent.
Thanks for all of the help! I will keep you posted.

Passed with flying colours
I first bought your book back in 2012 when I was contacted by BP in UK.
I had my first phone interview and with your book I passed with flying colours and no had no problem in passing to the second phase.
They were really satisfied and although the basic salary was not what I wanted in the beginning, I said to myself I will only talk about it when they have a full understanding of my skills.
And it worked. After the face-to-face interview they offered me exactly what I wanted plus a bonus for relocation.
So I changed country with my family, my husband resigned from his job back in Portugal and we came with our 2 years old son.
The following challenge was to find a job for my husband in the UK. He was not as fluent I am but he started to attend english classes and some courses in IT to prove this 11 years of experience (in Portugal they do not value so much certifications). One thing that really helped was to make sure that his CV was written in a British manner and so we contracted a company to rewrite his CV. This made quite a difference as he started to get interviews. Again with your help he joined BP this month and he will be working on the same company as I am and getting a base salary that he could never dream back in Portugal plus benefits.
So I have to say thank you very much for your tips and it really makes a difference when you know what they are after.
I believe that you can help lots of people out there looking for a job.
Used it for years to get better and better positions
I just wanted to say thank you for writing such a good book, The Complete Interview Answer Guide.
I have used it for years to get better and better positions – I will be interviewing for my dream job in Spain today and I think your book has helped me not only with interviews, but when I am interviewing others for positions.
People tell me that I don’t interview like an engineer which I take as a compliment.

After eight months of being unemployed ...its a great feeling
I had not interviewed for a job in years (2003) and needless to say my information, resume, and interview skills were outdated.
Unfortunately, there is so much outdated or useless information out there, then I found your website with your easy going manner, straight talk about what employers were looking for and how to show them that I was the best candidate were instantly appealing.
I purchased several of your products (Complete Interview Answer Guide, and Writing Perfect Thank You Letters), and after months of not having a call, email, or interview, they came.
They were slow at first, as I learned to retool my resume to custom fit each position I was applying for. I was able to interview with several Fortune 500 and 100 companies as a result. But with every interview I felt more comfortable and my confidence grew because your Answer Guide gave me the knowledge not to just answer the question, but tell the hiring manager why I was the best candidate.
After eight months of being unemployed its a great feeling to be useful and have a full time position .
I can't thank you enough, your information and expertise gave me the confidence and encouragement to keep going when so many others simply give up looking.
In my opinion your materials need to be taught to kids in high school, college, job placement services, and anywhere else people are going to be joining the job hunt.
You have so many positive comments already on your website you probably don't need mine.
After all you helped me, and if my information helps someone else to seek your help I know it can work for them too.
Thanks for all you do,

Got the job out of 300 applicants!
An e-mail is not enough to describe my happiness. I bought and read your book a month ago and I am in the pleased position to announce you that I got the job.
I live in a country with an unemployment rate of 17% and with youth unemployment rate of 50%.
I applied for a job with 300 other people and I managed because of you to take the job.
Thank you. You are a god for me. Keep it up.
5 interviews and multiple offers
Your book has been very helpful and has covered just about every question I have encountered thus far in my interviews. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking employment in today’s market.
Luckily I haven’t had to experience looking for employment in over 12 years. So you can imagine my skills were a bit rusty and your booklet has been a godsend.
To date I have had 5 interviews for management positions with various Fortune 500 companies with positive results and job offers. Thank you for all the assistance you have provided.
I recently interviewed for an internal position within Bank of America/Merrill Lynch and got the job

Your book was such an instant help to me
Your book was such an instant help to me that not only I was not nervous at all while doing interview this time, which was different from usual due to that I have the confidence after reading your book, but also the interviewers were impressed by my strengthened skills and most relevant experience and qualification, as well as the detailed answers in behavioural questions.
I felt like I have acquired the main techniques of interview after reading your book for only once in a short time.
Thank you very much again Don!
Experienced outstanding positive experiences in my interviews.
Thank you very much for creating 'The Complete Interview Answer Guide'. Since day 1, I have experienced outstanding positive experiences in my interviews.
I purchased your Guide because I found out that mostly I was not selected to the next stage with the client (after head hunter interviews) and if I did I barely made it through and not with sufficient 'tools' prepared for the next interview and was not confident enough.
In my past life I have never been selected in interview processes that involve 3 or more interviews and speaking to various members of the company individually.
However it seems like this has changed now!
Thank you very much for your help! You really made a change in this aspect of my life!
Totally bombed out at an interview
I don't usually reply to this sort of marketing of a product but your book which I downloaded and read through was worth every dollar.
I am a New Zealand trained doctor working in Australia. I am an older woman (60) who has never been out of work in the field of psychiatry until trying to get a job for next year, and totally bombed out at an interview and was told my communication skills were lacking.
I read through your book, made notes about answering questions especially about strengths and weaknesses (I now know how to re-frame these type of questions) and went to 2 interviews in the past 4 days and have already been offered one of the positions and expect to be offered the other as well.
Your book gave me the confidence I needed to interviews and enjoy the challenges in the questions. One interview was very standard and the other had questions from left field which I feel I managed in a much better way as I was prepared.
Again, many thanks, and I have already recommended your book to someone and will continue to do so.
