Job Interview Preparation

Job Interview Preparation

Put very simply, our training will ensure that you put the best version of yourself forward in your next job interview.

Precious few positions exist that we haven’t helped people get. We know what you’re facing, whether you are a software engineer or a medical registrar. We’ve dealt with interview styles of all types. From competency based interviews to informal chats, from internal interviews to interview presentations.

And we know how to help you be the best you can be. With our advice, we help you anticipate the essential questions and give you strategies to prepare.

Our consultant will sit down with you and will examine the same areas the interview panel are likely to probe. That interaction will be recorded and our consultant will go back through the recording with you; identifying problems and developing solutions for them, spotting strengths, ensuring they are made concrete and providing you with a roadmap for preparation.

We’ll deal with the small stuff like appearance and body language, but where we can make a difference is in the big stuff – what does the employer need? Are you demonstrating you can provide it? And if not, we’ll show you how.

I will undoubtedly be recommending the Communications clinic to anyone going for an interview. I was referred by a friend who spoke very highly of the service, however, it still surpassed my lofty expectations. Regardless of the interview outcome, it instilled confidence in me and made my interviewing technique a lot more focused and targeted.

Graduate Interviews

Your first professional interview can be a daunting experience. We have a specially designed service, run by expert consultants, that will make sure you are ready to make the strongest impression possible.

We know what graduate recruiters are looking for, we know how they interview and we can give you the tools to prepare yourself efficiently and effectively.

Our consultant will sit down with you and will examine the same areas the interview panel are likely to probe. That interview will cover all of the different styles of questions you are likely to face. We’ll record it and our consultant will go back through the recording with you; identifying problems and developing solution, spotting strengths, ensuring they are made concrete and providing you with a roadmap for preparation.

We’ll deal with the small stuff like appearance and body language, but where we can make a difference is in the big stuff – what does the employer need? Are you demonstrating you can provide it? And if not, we’ll show you how.

And then, we’ll interview you again, allowing you to immediately apply the new structures and techniques.

You’ll leave with a copy of your recorded interviews and a clear, structured approached to answering each style of interview question common to graduate interviews.

For now, learn how to approach a few key questions here,

CV and Application Form Review

Writing an exceptional CV, cover letter or application form is the first step towards getting a new job or deserved promotion. It’s your first impression with the potential employer and it establishes how they will perceive you for the rest of the process. It’s essential that your written documents do justice to your careers, experience and expertise.

This service will help you write documents that highlight your achievements and make it clear that you have the skills and attributes the potential employer demands.

This service can be delivered in person or remotely, via phone and email. We don’t set a time period because the service only ends when both you and your consultant are happy with the finished document.

Our sessions take about 90 minutes and are one-to-one.

If you can’t get to our offices, we provide job interview preparation over Skype and FaceTime.

We also provide job interview skills talks and seminars for organisations, companies and educational institutions.
