A proven interview process.
Well over 100 interview coaching clients. That’s countless questions, situations, and insights considered, discussed, and made easier… allowing those clients to walk into their interviews with more confidence and control than they ever expected to have.
Now it’s your turn.
Our interview coaching is done in a series of four 75-minute online sessions…
In the first,
We detail your background and identify key points to present in your interview. Our clients are often shocked by how many relevant accomplishments we uncover that would likely have been missed or not brought out sufficiently. We discuss any previous interviews and what to learn from then, and start developing your unique strategies to best prepare for the coming interview. We also discuss any specific concerns you may have and how to address them.
In the middle sessions,
We feature “mock interviews” that we record on video and then review in detail. We highlight where you are doing well and where to focus efforts to improve. We cover actual interview formats, questions, and scenarios you are likely to encounter, but rather than tell you what to say, we help you create approaches and answers that are genuinely yours.
You see and hear your own speech patterns, mannerisms, posture, and body language, and which points to address and which to bring out even more. You are given a password-protected link to your videos.
In the final,
We summarize the progress made and highlight any remaining areas for focus. We review the questions that are most important and go back over the ones that still might concern you most.
An encouraging coach. You got this.
