Review: “Ace the IT Interview”

Any technical recruiter who has guided a technical candidate through the interviewing process for an open IT job knows the importance of interviewing skills. This book serves as a practical guide to landing IT jobs, which is a skill an IT staffer wants to be well-versed in for the purposes of best advising technical candidates. The book provides a bird’s eye view of the IT interviewing process, and how technical employers view candidates and their answers to standard interview questions.

Accordingly, Moreira discusses the power of first impressions, and how technical candidates can make the best possible fist impression. The ability to anticipate re-occuring interview questions is a key skill for a good interviewing impression, so a portion of this book is devoted to key technical interview questions. Any technical employer will be interviewing multiple candidates for any open IT position, so the next step for a candidate who has mastered the skills of fitting in, and presenting according to expectations, is to go beyond that level of interview performance and stand out from the competition in a positive way — a way that will make him or her memorable in an interviewer’s mind. IT staffers will find this book invaluable for giving technical candidates the best possible interview prep for closing an IT job that will last till contract end, or be extended.
