Professional Interview Coaching via Skype or Telephone (1.5 Hour Session)
Graduate Level – Suitable for candidates targeting graduate roles, sandwich placements (including applications involving Assessment Centres)
What is included:
Before the session: We will ask you to send across any information which will help us prepare and enable us to tailor the session to meet your needs. This would typically include a copy of your CV or Application as well as the Job Description and Person Specification for any role(s) you are targeting (if available).
At the beginning of your session your Interview Coach will ask you some relevant ‘test’ interview questions in order assess your current skill level and identify which areas require the most attention. They will also 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 about as well as getting an insight into your career aspirations and reasons for seeking a new role.
Once your Interview Coach has identified the key issues and areas you need help with, they will then work with you to improve your interview technique. This can include;
- Helping you to formulate your own answers to competency based interview questions
- Helping you to convey your unique skills, experience and achievements in a way which best demonstrates your suitability
- Avoiding common pitfalls
- Preparation of some standard answers to tough questions you may be asked at interview
