Being coached for your interviews is beneficial for all levels of job seekers ranging from graduates to board-level executives and are especially useful for those at a senior level.
Being a strong communicator and being comfortable in interviews is not enough when you are competing with other high-calibre candidates. It is important to know how to interpret questions correctly and structure your answers using effective communication frameworks. This is where professional interview coaching will give you the edge. Having strong interview technique is a skill that will help you throughout your career, so it's worth investing in now.
Interview Training Workshop
We deliver a high level and advanced telephone based one-to-one interview coaching session for people who want to prepare thoroughly for an interview. The quality of our coaching typically results in a significant uplift in job offers and even remuneration levels.
During the one hour session, we will talk you through several quick-win but highly effective techniques that will improve your ability to: prepare for an interview; structure questions; avoid rambling; answer competency based questions; turn the interview into a sales presentation rather than a typical Q&A; and close the ‘sale’.
Having professional interview coaching is essential preparation and a proven way of maximising your chances of securing a job offer.
Face-to-Face Mock Interview
This is effectively a dummy run of a real life interview where we will interview you for a specific role or against general questions relevant to your career. We provide an initial coaching session via telephone then create a mock interview consisting of 10 tailored questions.
The interview will take place at a location near you and we will capture the mock interview on film. This is used to analyse your interview technique, body language and communication style.
We will provide access to a recording of the session and deliver high level coaching on how to improve your technique which will cover anything from basic interview skills through to advanced methodologies suitable for experienced Executives.
This is a quick, easy and cost effective way to get some solid interview practice before you attend your interview. Using innovative technology, we can tailor an interview to any profession and competency framework and use our virtual interview platform to ask you the questions through your PC / laptop webcam or tablet device. Once you have been asked the questions and given your response, you submit the interview to us to critique. You can also choose from several thousand questions and practice your interview technique until your heart’s content. The system records your interview (audio and video) so you can play-back your performance on your PC screen. We provide detailed feedback in both written and verbal format.
You can buy the mock interview with or without the 1-2-1 one-hour interview coaching workshop and receive either written or verbal feedback.
We will keep working on your CV until you are 100% happy and if at the end you are not, we will refund your money.
