Interviewing Strong

I wanted to share an exciting new book that just came out last week, a book our times demand. Within days of publication, it was a #1 new release on Amazon. Here’s my Amazon review:

Mark Jonathan’s Interview Strong speaks loudly from the authority of experience, from one who was once dreadfully unemployed and who now interviews countless candidates with empathy from the other side of the table.

I got the feeling that if you and I apply the habits, principles, skills, and psyche this book expresses so well, it would be nearly it impossible to fail to “get that job.” Yeah, you heard me. Let me repeat: Jonathan’s whole-souled book will make it mathematically impossible for you and I to fail if we manage to apply its advice well. (Individual results will vary, of course, but you get the idea.)

One of the books (many) strengths is its storytelling. It’s like a textbook with heart. Story is woven into the fabric of the book, making it an easy-to-read page turner. You connect with the author and the people he meets and advises, such as the chronically unemployed Five, a gut wrenching and liberating saga to be sure.

Mark Jonathan knows whereof he speaks. A seasoned interviewer and interviewee, Mark is a senior human resources executive with over 20 years of experience in talent acquisition. If you are looking for a book to help you interview stronger and get that next job, you can buy the Kindle or paperback now at a low introductory price (a price that won’t last).

Another Conference Promotion: All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned on My Mission by Jeff Skousen, Free until October 8, 2018

About 20 years ago, my friend Jeff Skousen wrote a book about his mission entitled All I Ever Needed to Know I Learned on My Mission, which he published and sold out. After our 40-year mission reunion this past summer, Jeff gave me a copy of his book and I thought it was fantastic. I encouraged Jeff to create a new edition and get it published on Amazon.

The book is now available. It’s a great read for anyone planning to go on a mission or if you every wax nostalgic about your mission. During October 5–8 (conference weekend), he is running a free Kindle promotion. To get it, click the link below.

The Kindle version is free this weekend until October 8, 2018. The paperback book is not included in this promotion. It’s priced at $7.99. If you buy the paperback, however, you can get the Kindle version free via Kindle MatchBook). After the promotion, the Kindle version is $1.99.

It’s always free for Prime and Kindle Unlimited members, and through Amazon’s Matchbook program, but on the last Saturday of this month, it will be free to anyone.

This is a basic guide for newcomers to the topic who want to look at a wide variety of scriptural passages that cast light on the Last Days, the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the Millennium, and the end of the world. Students of the Second Coming won’t find anything sensational, highly speculative, or particularly new or groundbreaking in this book, but rather a simple, scriptural foundation for the doctrine surrounding this sacred season.

(It’s a compilation of posts from my blog “Put on the Armor of Light,” written between September 2014 and November 2015.)
