What People Say About “What Where They Thinking? Behaviors and Attitudes That Can Ruin A Job Interview”

“What Where They Thinking? Behaviors and Attitudes That Can Ruin A Job Interview” by Janice R. Jenkins does a great job of preparing the reader for an interview. She covers what to have in place before the interview, important interview questions, the way you should carry yourself, and things you should not do or say in your interview. The book draws on Janice’s 15+ years of experience. She has had many opportunities over the years to develop her own skills as an interviewer and interviewee.

Even as a former vocational counselor, I find her stories of real-life interview situations fascinating, eye-opening and very helpful to my own interview preparation.

Interviewing is hard for most people. You can ease some of the burden by reading Janice’s book.” Naomi F., Former Vocational Counselor
