Services – Interview Skills Coaching and CV advice

90 minute consultations are tailored to support each individual and their personal circumstances and may include one or a combination of the following services:

Interview Coaching

Whether you are facing telephone screening, an interview panel, competency based interview or an assessment centre,  I can help to draw out your strengths and boost your confidence with one to one interview coaching. You will gain interview experience and improve your communication skills in a friendly and supportive environment. Coaching can include advice and help to successfully answer difficult competency based and behavioural questions and you will get valuable, constructive feedback on your performance.

CV Review

An effective cv is critical to grab the attention of recruiters and get you to the all important interview stage. However, it is difficult to write a cv that communicates your strengths and experience without being too long, repetitive or using generic ‘key words and phrases’ that can be off-putting or even irritating to recruiters. A comprehensive review of your cv including advice on layout, structuring and content will ensure that your cv provides the information that recruiters are looking for and that your application stands out.

Mock Interviews

A mock interview is more formal and aims to replicate interview conditions. Practice your interview techniques with feedback and critique on your performance afterwards.

Coaching Through the Interview Process

Once you have completed a consultation, I can provide continuing telephone support through the interview process to offer and contract negotiation.

Cover Letters and Personal Statements

Advice, support and feedback on cover letters, application forms and personal statements.
