"What are your weaknesses?" is the most commonly asked interview question but what's common does not necessarily mean to be simple. Neither can you tell your weakness nor can you say that you suffer with none. So what to say when nothing seems correct and certainly you can't leave it unanswered. This book brings together all such questions, which are specifically made to trick a candidate into a rejection, yes, a rejection. Interview is a process of elimination or rejection and not selection. An interviewer keeps rejecting until he reaches the best candidate available. But how does he do that? The answer is simple i.e. through a series of organized questions which are created after psychological and real life research and experience and trust me; no matter how good you are, if you are not prepared for each of these questions before meeting your recruiter, 95% chances are you won't be able to make it. In order to make it to your dream job, one must not only know what to say but more importantly, must also know what not to say. This book equips you with the technique to handle such questions with ease and show your recruiter that you are prepared for any challenge whatsoever. Every question is explained according to the expectation of recruiter, and the message a recruiter perceives from the wrong or improper answers along with sample answer from real life interview scenarios.
This comprehensive and intelligent guide has been written by top interviewers who have extensive experience within the Customer Services and Call Center sectors. They include model answers to 96 questions and four actual job interview scripts. (Careers/Job Opportunities)

Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.
