Our Professional Interview Coaches can help you prepare so you can secure the job you WANT

Why use our Interview Coaching Service?
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, employment gaps 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.
