A successful interview is a meeting where a person presents themselves effectively enough for others to believe in their abilities, ideas and potential. Knowing how to succeed at interview can therefore have life-changing consequences.

Why You? includes real-life examples of interview success and horror stories (and how to avoid them); techniques for preparing for interviews and how to deal with stress; the truth behind what hirers want and their expectations from interviews; and examples of interview questions and how to answer them successfully.

Based on research obtained from REED's extensive recruitment network, hirers, recruiters and interviewees, Why You? provides new approaches to old techniques and offers unique insights into what hirers really want.
