About the Author

Hi, my name is Sandra. I work as a Consultant and PMO Manager in the financial, software & IT industry for many years. Throughout this time I have interviewed many people and worked with recruitment agencies to hire people for different roles in various companies. I have seen many great people who did not get the job due to their performance in the interview.

On the other hand, I have seen candidates, who were not so good in their job (we found out later) but they were fantastic in the interview.

Surprisingly, most of the times, it will come down to your interview preparation and your performance during the job interview, which will get you the job.

Based on my experience, I put all my knowledge together and bundled it up on this website and in the eBook. I hope it can help you with getting you the job you want.

If you like to get in contact, please use this form. I would love to hear from you and to see if this information helped you with the interview.

Wishing you all the Best and Good Luck,
