My book published yesterday and is now available for purchase on Amazon or directly from me.
I have been working toward this day for nearly a year having started the book on December 5th 2015 sitting in the dining room of Rona and Scott Black’s apartment. I was giving a free workshop and mock interviews to the English PhD students at the University of Utah and with the support of the Blacks I embarked on this journey. One impetus for publishing this book was to give myself credibility. Somehow people think you’re an expert if you’ve written a book. I realize now that there is some truth to that. Writing, rewriting, editing and reediting has forced me to think more clearly about the subject and how I communicate to students. Writing the book has made me a better workshop leader and a more focused personal interview coach.
The most exciting thing about publishing this book is that I am now able to help hundreds and even thousands of students; ones I could never have helped before. By reading my book, I believe a student will be better prepared for their college interviews by knowing the likely questions they’ll be asked, how to formulate a great answer, and what to ask the interviewer. The student will be more relaxed and can represent themselves well. I hope that this book will prepare high school students to easily ace their interviews, each and every time.
Please check back here frequently for updates. I’ll be sharing feedback I receive, success stories from my readers and those I coach, and further insight into the interview process. Visit the site to see new testimonials as more students share their experiences and follow my progress as I write the next book–Perfect Prep 2: A Guide to Acing Your First-Job Interview.
