The norms that we were used to, have changed in the 21st century. Today, the Interviewer needs the Interviewee; as much as the Interviewee needs the job! The Interviewer is not always in a superior position, as in the past. In some industries, there is a great shortage of qualified candidates. The Interviewee has man more choices than the Interviewer!
Job Interviews, where both can win is an attempt to present an easy to read book, for those on either side of the table. For those who have to hone their interviewing skills to select the best candidates and ensure Corporate Success and for those who will appear for job interviews so that they not only get a job but they get more they get Career Satisfaction!
This book intends to fill that need. To build a bridge of communication, understanding, and appreciation for each other's situation. It is written in Walter Vieira's inimitable style - simple, to the point, a sense of humour, and relying on his vast experience of over forty years as a corporate executive and then, a leading management consultant.
It guides the Interviewer on how to get the right person. It shows the Interviewee how to get the right job. When this happens, it is a WIN=WIN situation for both.

A Real Situation
Romy had spent twenty-four years in the engineering industry. He was at the Vice President level. But he was now keen on changing the industry focus. He wanted to get into the automobile industry, which he felt was a ‘sunrise’ industry.

Romy spent four months reading all he could about automobiles - the market in Europe, India and US; the market shares; the strengths and weaknesses of each brand; the problems of infrastructure, et al. Then he applied to the two new automobile entrants into India.

Romy was surprised; he was called for an interview by both companies. He came through with flying colours. It seemed he knew more about the automobile industry than some of those on the panel.

He was offered a good assignment - and he accepted the offer. Good preparation had led to a predictable result!

1. How do you judge the progress you have made so far?
2. Has it been an increasing learning process? In what way?
3. What are your aspirations?
4. Where do you expect to go in the next five years?
5. What growth opportunities do you anticipate in your present organisation? Why?
6. What growth opportunities do you expect here? Why?
7. What do you know about this organisation – its management, style, products, and policies?
8. What circumstances have gone against you in the past?
9. Have you been under much stress? How have you handled it?
10. How did you get on with your boss?
11. Why have you not named him as your referee?
12. What is your connection with the referees named?
13. May we refer to them next week?
14. Do you feel comfortable working with figures and with computers?
15. Are you an outdoor person or an office person?
16. Do you prefer a staff function (more mental-planning) or a line function (more active-outdoor)?
17. Do you consider yourself a good communicator? Why?
18. Would you be better at verbal or written communication?
19. List one failure in your job. How did it help you?
