Descripción del libro
The book is for job seekers to help them succeed in their very next interview. It is called The Empowered Candidate: The Power You Have to Land the Job You Deserve.
The Empowered Candidate taps into my first-hand experience with thousands of candidates, the cognitive sciences and even persuasion tactics used by Greek philosophers. It provides tactical interview advice such as top things every employer wants to know, questions a candidate should never ask, and the hidden power of resumes. Job seekers will also learn to structure answers that build credibility, effectively use logic and storytelling, overcome self-doubt, improve body language, find the best time of day to interview, and much more.
While getting a foot in the door has shifted from traditional resume drops toward social media and networking strategies, actually landing a job and getting a seat at the table (or at least in a cubicle) still hinges on one critical piece of the hiring process—the interview. This book empowers candidates with the knowledge and practices they need to land the job they deserve.
Público al que se apunta
Job seekers. People interested in career transitions. People who are either going for their first interview or haven't interviewed in a while.

Necesidades de diseño
I don't want images of people on the cover. For example, many books about interviewing, hiring, etc have images/icons of people on the front (sitting at a table, shaking hands, staring at a light bulb above them, etc.) That feels generic to me. I'd rather go with interesting font and, good design and maybe a subtle image. I want a cover that gives a feeling of strength and power. It is a book that feels more serious than light/fun.
Lo que debe evitarse
See above. Avoid images/icons/avatars of people. Avoid stock imagery. The book has more of a serious vibe, so avoid fonts that are too lighthearted or fun.
