Since being introduced last year, Ditch the Flip-Flops has become the #1 resource at campus career centers across the nation for students seeking internships and full-time employment. This book equips soon-to-be degree holders and recent college grads with the skills to ace their toughest test yet: the job interview. Nothing in school has prepared you for the brutal scrutiny of HR managers . . . nor the fierce competition you will encounter while trying to land your dream job. And calling in the cavalry is complicated. Far too many bookshelf and online resources bolster a more been-around-the-block candidate or one erroneously lured into believing it's a cinch to impress recruiters. Campus career offices are reassuringly capable, but pushed to the max with too many students knocking on overly-beaten doors. As a result, twentysomethings scramble to maximize and differentiate in the dog-eat-dog interview meat market. In a manageable three-step approach, Ditch the Flip-Flops changes all this by focusing on critical fundamentals and life-changing momentum specific to recent college grads. No smoke and mirrors or promises that sixty seconds is all it takes. Instead, straightforward answers, hundreds of examples, and keen insights from busines leaders, HR professionals, and those in the trenches. All in all, Ditch the Flip-Flops is Interviewing 101 at its guts and glory best.
