You probably don’t go for many interviews; you want the job – my interview coaching will help.

For success at interview you need an effective interview technique and relevant, targeted preparation.

Interview coaching with an experienced interviewer will increase your chance of success. I provide comprehensive preparation materials to ensure that the time we spend together is focused on practical coaching.

In advance learn about researching the organisation, different styles of interview such as competency based, skills, panel …

Selection can be an interview or it can be part of a wider selection process to include psychometric testing, video interviews, assessment centres and more. I’m the author of Now you’ve been shortlisted. 

My interview coaching covers:

  • The importance of research– to demonstrate you understand the organisations’ situation, to be ready for the difficult interview questions and to allow you to ask relevant questions.
  • Developing the right mind setto make sure you feel motivated and have the inner belief to get the job.
  • Identifying key detailfrom the job ad and other material.
  • Everything you need to answer competency-based questions.
  • What to do when you have been sacked or seen as a job hopper.
  • How to follow up.

Denise is a sought-after consultant used by a wide range of organisations as an interviewer and assessor. Previously responsible for training ALL assessors within the Post Office businesses.  Organisations I work with include Christian Aid, Civil Service Fast Stream, EDF Energy, Vodafone and many more.

“The transformation that you have achieved for me is remarkable. A couple of months ago I was coming out of interviews having failed completely to get my points across. With your help I have learned how to prepare myself, focus on the interviewers’ questions and ensure that I communicate all the important facts concisely and effectively. You have also provided the all-important boost to my self-confidence, by spotting and building upon what I did well, as well as acknowledging my weaknesses with constructive, practical tips to overcome them.
