How acting a little crazy and thinking outside of the box can get you the job you want
Ever hear of a job candidate stretching out on the interviewer's floor to fill out an application? Or an applicant who sees nothing wrong with texting during the interview? Securing a job interview is a golden opportunity. The crazy-bad behavior described above will not net a job offer. Crazy Good Interviewing shows readers that crazy-good behavior, however, can make an applicant stand out favorably in a sea of mediocrity. Take the candidate who created a keynote presentation on his iPad to show what he could bring to the job or the one who created a DVD highlighting her abilities.

Crazy Good Interviewing is a book geared toward those who are looking for work in this tough economy.
* Addresses how slightly eccentric behaviors can tip the scales in the applicant's favor
* Delves into how to access your three key strengths, how to use body language effectively, how to prepare a five-sentence history that builds a bridge to the interviewer, and more

Turn just plain crazy into crazy-good, and land the job at your next interview.
