I don’t work for a company, neither do I have a boss above me. Therefore, I am indifferent to the topic of the book. I don’t visit job interviews and I don’t deal with recruiting professionals. Nevertheless, in my early youth, I used to go to job interviews, and I never passed them. I guess I am the type of person someone would like to have in their company because I am too independent competitive, too frank, can be conflictive when I don’t like something. During those interviews, the HR staff was asking me different questions, and I never understood the motives beyond those questionnaires. That’s why I decided to satisfy my interest and read this book. I enjoyed reading ‘The Recruiting Snitch: Recruiting Secrets to Help Land Your Dream Job’ by Alysse Metzler.
