"Jenny Rogers has made an exhaustive study of those daunting occasions called job interviews and has a wealth of thoroughly sensible advice to offer. She's far from advocating a one-size-fits-all formula and she certainly doesn't favour that pushy, Young Apprentice approach, which must surely do far more harm than good. In essence, she helps people be their individual selves; but at their best - neither quivering with nervousness nor putting on an unconvincing act."
Jeremy Bullmore, Management Today
One of the most important keys to achieving success in your career is the ability to impress at interview.
Although it is fundamental to getting any job, the interview is still an experience most professionals dread.
