If you are a recruiter, manager or even a job seeker wondering what may be asked in an interview, this is a great tool to have in your library.
Let `s see the example
QUESTIONS 32 WHY DO YOU CHOOSE YOUR MAJOR ?
Why ask this question?
Let `s be practical, because most larger universities probably offer close to one hundred majors from which to choose. the four with the most direct real life practical application are engineering, pre-med, computer, science and business. does that mean that those economics, German, anthropology majors have little to offer ? of course not, as a matter of fact, study after study has been published regarding which students fare better in business. those with liberal arts orientations or those with specialty degrees. Keep in mind, however that unless you are hiring for one of the big 4 accounting firms. you will have about a 95% chance of interviewing students with majors that have little relevance to your direct line of business., so employing this query will allow you to tunnel inside their heads for a moment and gauge what interestgs them and why.
Part of the reason I bought this book is becasue its review on amazon. I really really dont understand why someone said this book is so popular and he has to take it to home because everybody wants to borrow it ? Apparently. those reviews are all FAKE !
It tells you all the "why's" behind the standard interview questions like "where do you want to be in 5 years?", and red flags to look for in candidates. Reading it also helped me know what to say when I was being interviewed!
