**Revised and updated for 2017 with ten extra tech questions.** Learn the secrets to excelling at interview, direct from top interviewers and recruiters, in Why You? by James Reed, chairman of recruitment specialists REED.

It offers powerful preparation techniques, the lowdown on how to answer the most common questions and - above all - how to adopt a winning mindset at interview, one that will help you succeed on the day. From classic questions like 'tell me about yourself' and 'what are your greatest weaknesses?' to puzzlers like 'sell me this pen' and 'how many traffic lights are there in London?', James Reed reveals what interviewers are really asking.
