Interview Coaching
Interview Practice

Interview Coaching can really help you position yourself and prepare for the big day.We know that reading about interviews is not the same as getting some practical advice or a mock interview with an expert.

Fortunately we can offer you One-to-One  coaching at very affordable prices and often at very short notice to tie in with your interview dates.

We offer a SKYPE based practice interview service to help give you that winning edge. (You can choose whether to use a webcam)

In our interview coaching sessions we can show you how to develop a winning strategy – planning and preparing for every eventuality and learning how to handle every possible kind of interview, from a brief chat over the telephone through to a trip to an assessment centre.

Your interview coach can take you through plenty of real interview questions and make sure you know how to avoid cliché and really make an impact when handling both the common interview questions – and the really tough questions that interviewers can throw at you.

We will give you scripts on how to answer the most common questions and guide you through our detailed preparation sheet.

We can talk you through how to deal with any 'glitches' or awkward anomalies in your career history and to disguise any areas of possible weakness.

And we can take you beyond the interview to discuss what you need to do to close the deal to your advantage and get the salary you deserve.

You'll find our interview coaching useful whether you are trying to land your first job, returning to the workplace after a career break or simply looking to take another step up the career ladder. 

How do I place an order?

Our fees for interview coaching start at just £45 for a 40-minute session and are based on the amount of time you book; the more time you book the lower the rate  becomes. For example, a one hour session will cost just £70 and if you book for 2 hours you will pay just £130. Whatever time you book you can divide it to suit the situation. So for example you can book 1 hour but use it in two sessions.

Clearly, the more time you can devote to this, the greater your chances of winning that job. We often find that two one-hour sessions one week apart are normally more productive than one single two-hour session.

We are available in the evening and at weekends, as we do appreciate that "normal working hours" aren't always the most convenient time for our clients. 

40 mins Coaching £45

60 mins Coaching £70
