Review: Get That Job by Christine Reidhead

Genre: Self-Help


“Inasmuch as there is a no one-size-fits all method to get that job, because jobs and interviewers differ. There is a regular pattern to job interview questions and job interview weaknesses. All of the suggestions will work for you if you follow the tips of job interviewing in this book.”


“Educator and Humanitarian, Christine Reidhead, is an Assistant Professor and the Founder and CEO of the Nonprofit Organization, AfrikRising. The youngest of five children, she was born in Mesa, Arizona”


Reviewing a book like this can be problematic. I’m not the expert on the subject. Presumably the author is. However, I’m also no spring chicken. I’ve interviewed for jobs a few times over the years. Even been hired after some of those interviews. I’ve also been the one interviewing and, based on the results, hiring or not. So, based on that …

One size doesn’t fit all and figuring out what works for you and your unique personality is up to you, but this book has lots of good ideas to consider and integrate into your interviewing process. With the exception of one minor nitpick where the author advised against using wi-fi for an online video interview (I think depending on your specific service, this might be the best option), all of her ideas and recommendations made sense to me. Next time I have a job interview, I’ll be coming back to this book as part of my preparation.
