Often, when we discuss helpful books, I suggest one that's not specifically about the arts. In the past, I've strongly recommended <I>Up the Organization</I> -- probably the best all-around book I've ever read about managing groups of people.<P>Because I've recently been looking for free-lance work for next season (Need a lighting designer? I'm available.), I decided to revisit another of my favorites, <I>Sweaty Palms: The Neglected Art of Being Interviewed</I>, by Anthony Medley.<P>It's all well and good to be good at your job, but before you can do a job well, you first have to <B>get</B> the job. Medley discusses various interview techniques, relates examples from actual interviews he's conducted, and gives many, many helpful hints.<P>If you're not good in interviews, this book will help you. If you're already good, Medley's book will make you better. It's definitely on my top-ten list of books you should have if you work in the arts.<P><P>------------------<BR>Jeffrey E. Salzberg, Lighting Designer<P>Online portfolio: <A HREF="http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg" TARGET=_blank>http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg</A> <P>This Day in Arts History: <A HREF="http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg/arthist.htm" TARGET=_blank>http://www.suncoast.quik.com/salzberg/arthist.htm</A><P>
