Need Your Help - Which Cover Would You Choose?

It has been 2 years in the making now and my book is now only weeks away from hitting the bookshelves. The book selling giant Amazon.com will be publishing it which I am obviously super pumped about.

The book is titled, "The 10 Key Interviewing T.E.C.H.N.I.Q.U.E.S." and is written for the job seeker on how to master the interview process. I have had great initial response and look forward to its release.

Check out the two covers below and let me know which one you feel would grab your attention more. Which one do you feel has the "POP" needed to grab a job seekers attention.




Thank you!

P.S. - There will be additional edits to the covers from here on out. i.e. font size, color, positioning etc. however this will narrow it down to which cover we will be working with.

I agree with Maren, #2 looks very nice.

Thank you...Maren, do you think it looks too masculine? I have had that comment by a couple of other individuals (including my wife). Is it relateable to the female audience?

I think the suit and tie combo has been a bit overused. I like #1. I'm a visual guy who likes color so it grabbed my attention. I would probably change the color of the key though. Regardless of the color you choose congratulations on the book!!!

Awesome! Can't wait to see your book. As for the cover, they both look like the standard "corporate" images that pick out of a database. The suit and tie one may limit your market on selling your book. It wouldn't stop me from buying it, but there are many women out there that would not buy it because it stereotypes the market of interviewing for a job towards men. Hope this helps.

Very helpful Gabriella. Thank you. That is something that has been flying around in my mind as to how this would effect and how to overcome. I will be going with some form of version #2 the suit and tie.
A friend suggested that this could be the "Interview Guru" himself on the cover but that would have to be someone that is familiar with my brand, The Interview Gurus.
Thank you again, we are in the works to bring a more genderly acceptable cover.
