Interview Coaching

In the competitive job market, just landing an interview can be challenging. People apply to an average of seven jobs just to get called for one interview. So once you actually get to meet with a potential employer in person, it’s important to stand out from the crowd and make it clear that you’re the one for the job. I’ve interviewed hundreds of job candidates, many of whom were not hired because they did not present themselves well. Be prepared for your interview whether it be face to face with an individual or group, by phone or SKYPE.

  • I ask the questions; you respond and I critique your answer, offering you a better response.
  • Benefits:  you know what questions will be asked and you will be confidently prepared.
  • Most companies ask behavioral interview questions.  Many ask Emotional Intelligence type questions.  I know what questions you can expect and can prepare you to ace the interview.

 Your job search doesn’t stop there……..I can also help you with:

  • Targeted job search
  • Company research
  • Working with executive search firms
  • Writing an Executive Biography
  • Compiling a career portfolio
  • Job offer negotiation (salary, benefit and counter offers)
  • 30-60-90 day plans (often requested in management interviews)
