Your interview problems solved…………

We can assist with all aspects of the interview process but typically, clients who come to us for Interview Coaching are experiencing difficulty with one or all of the following:

Are you struggling to sell your skills and experience to interviewers effectively?

This could include being unsure about how to answer Competency Based or other tough interview questions, such as those on weaknesses, failures and other random questions intended to catch you out! We can also help you to ‘translate’ your experience effectively from one type of role to another, if you are changing career or moving back to employment from self-employment.

Unsure how to explain redundancy, gaps in employment or a career change?

In the challenging economic climate of recent years, many people have been forced to change career paths following redundancy, take a break from work for health reasons or to undertake family care duties. We know it can be tough to explain these career moves at interview but our Interview Coaches can assist you to explain these types of transition and other career dilemmas in a way which will not put off interviewers.

Are you unsure about how to prepare for Assessment Centres?

Many of our clients are unfamiliar with what will be involved or how to prepare effectively for Assessment Centre exercises such as Presentations, In-Tray Exercises, Verbal Reasoning or Numerical Reasoning tests which form part of many modern interviews. We can help you to approach these tests with confidence and to prepare effectively for Graduate Scheme Assessments.

Are you out of practise and are confused about what today’s employer wants?

Many of our Interview Coaching clients have been in the same role for many years and are now faced with the daunting prospect of facing a job interview to secure a new role. As a result, many are nervous about the whole interview process and what will be expected of them, as well as being unsure how to present themselves effectively to potential employers. Our interview Coaches can help explain the process to you and ensure you know what to expect.

Is it time to invest in your career?

“Thank you so much! You’ve been so helpful in preparing me for graduate interviews and I have now secured an excellent placement!…me and my parents have recommended your services to a bunch of people so hopefully you’ll be getting more business soon! Thanks again for all your help,”

Tom A, Finance Graduate

How our Interview Coaching Service works

During your Interview Coaching session we will pinpoint exactly what you are having difficulties with and devise an appropriate action plan to improve your interview technique. We will then work with you to ensure that you give the best interview possible. We can help you with what to say, how to say it, body language and tone of voice, as well as advising on other aspects of the job interview process such as dress code and building a rapport with the interviewers. Our experienced Interview Coach will help you feel prepared and confident enough to secure the job you want.

Interview Coaching can be conducted by telephone / video (Skype) or face-to-face at our offices in Cardiff or Bristol

Stage 1) Assessment

At the beginning of your session your Interview Coach will discuss with you which areas of your interview technique you feel require the most work and what aspects of the interview you are feeling most anxious or stressed about. This will include discussing any unsuccessful interviews you have attended before to help analyse what went wrong and where you can improve. Your Interview Coach will then ask you some relevant test interview questions of the type you will be likely to face in a real interview. This will enable your Interview Coach to assess your current skill level effectively and highlight which areas require the most attention for you.

Stage 2) Feedback & Coaching

Next, your Interview Coach will provide detailed feedback on your answers to the test interview questions. This will include details on:

  • How well you listened to and understood the interview questions
  • If you included all the required / relevant information in your answers
  • If you provided sufficient evidence to demonstrate your skills, experience and achievements
  • How well you delivered your answers
  • If you interacted appropriately with the interviewer
  • If you said or did anything likely to give a bad impression or put off interviewers

Once you and your Interview Coach have identified the key issues and areas you need help with, they will then work with you to improve your interview technique. We will work on exactly what you need help with.

This can include:

  • Helping you to anticipate questions / topics likely to come up (to help you prepare)
  • Preparation of some standard answers to Tough Questions you may be asked at interview
  • Helping you to formulate your own answers to Competency Based Interview Questions
  • Prepare to answer Strength Based, Value Based and Scenario Based Interview Questions
  • Teaching you some Techniques to build rapport with the interviewer(s)
  • Guidance on how to Research a potential employer before your interview 
  • Providing Relevant Questions for you to ask a potential employer at interview
  • Improving your Body Language to demonstrate your interest
  • Practical advice to improve your confidence at interview and banish interview nerves!

Stage 3) Mock Interview

At the end of the session we can stage a short Mock Interview to allow you to benchmark your progress and practice your new techniques. Because we use real job interview questions throughout you can be assured that you will gain a realistic understanding of your interview performance has improved. Our clients find this one of the most helpful aspects of our interview coaching.

We also offer a full 30 Minute Mock Interview Service
