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.

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.

If you are applying for a job – or thinking about it, The Art of Interview Skills is for you. It is packed with real life stories and practical advice on preparing for your interview. 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.

An excellent resource for those who consider their interview skills to be a little 'rusty'. This is actually more than an interview skills book; it has some great tools to prepare for a range of situations.

An essential read when preparing for an interview. As an HR professional, I will definitely be recommending it as a preparation guide. That, and a fun read too! Well done Fiona.

Practical, funny and confidence boosting. A concise and easy to apply approach. Highly recommended.

Our oldest son is just in the process of job hunting so this arrived at just the right moment. This gets over all the things that, in theory, you know about preparing for an interview, but in practice you get overwhelmed by. Reading felt like a reassuring hand guiding you through a check list to success! And strangely our son paid much more attention to Fiona than us! Thank you!
