Leigh Marrs ★★★★★

I loved the no jargon, practical advice of this book. It was honest and made absolute sense. As well as seasoned job hunters I also think my teenage daughters would really benefit from reading it as they start to apply for jobs. Looking forward to the next book by Fiona Setch.

Gill Satterley ★★★★★

A very inspiring read, full of positivity and possibilities to work on, full of practical advice and common sense. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone preparing for an interview.

Robert Boylan ★★★★★

Having worked with Fiona I know that she puts heart and soul into what she does. Her enthusiasm is infectious. It was only a matter of time before she authored a book. This book contains all you need to inspire you in focusing on the job you want, giving your very best at the interview/s and getting into your dream job. Many authors write books focussing solely on the interview itself. Fiona’s book is different in that it looks at the all important ‘’pre-interview preparation’ stage in order to get you an interview in the first place. This book is a goldmine of information that people at all levels of their career can benefit from.

Melissa Roberts ★★★★★

What a great book! It contains so many practical tips combined with inspiring quotations that I defy anyone who is preparing for an interview not to take away at least one invaluable gem!

Marianne Craig MCC ★★★★★

This book is also a rich source of advice and tips on creating a top quality CV. The book contains colourful graphics and inspiring quotations from many different people from David Beckham to Leonardo da Vinci. The author Fiona Setch is a highly experienced coach and presenter who has assisted hundreds of individuals to develop their interview skills to get the job they want. Fiona really knows her stuff! This book is a treasure chest of practical tips, tools and techniques to motivate and encourage you to really go for it, and to do your very best in your interview. Many people get nervous about job interviews and Fiona’s book gives you loads of useful advice to boost your confidence. I found the section on positive mental rehearsal particularly enlightening. The Art of Interview Skills is highly very readable and accessible. It is an invaluable source of wisdom whether you are applying for your first job or aiming for a senior post. I have already recommended this book to a number of my clients.
