Interview Coaching

 

The key to landing just about any job is the ability to perform well in a job interview. Just about anyone looking to land a new job can benefit from interview coaching.

Having successfully coached hundreds of clients on improving their interview abilities, I’m able to significantly increase the likelihood that your interview will successfully move you into the strongest possible position as a job candidate.

Here are some of the ways I’m able to help:

 

  • Observing and correcting sub-optimal posture, body language, tone of voice, and vocabulary
  • Conducting mock interviews, making suggestions on better ways of presenting your qualifications
  • Providing tips on ways to reduce the performance anxiety pretty much universally felt by interviewees, anxiety that interferes with providing cogent and persuasive answers
  • Offering suggestions on ways to handle such tricky questions as “What is your greater weakness?,” “What’s an accomplishment you’re proudest of?, “What are your salary expectations?”, “Where do you see yourself in 5 (10) years?”
  • Teaching you principles that will help you provide superior answers to such really tricky behavioral questions such as “Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult colleague,” “Tell me about a time you were asked to do something you were uncomfortable with,” or ”Tell me about a failure that you’ve had”
  • Suggesting questions you can ask at the end of an interview that will impress the interviewer with your intelligence and desire for the job[/vc_column_text]
