We will start by doing an assessment of your CV, statement, and personality. Getting to know you will help us create a comprehensive strategy to improve your interview skills. Our personalized approach will showcase your strengths and remove "red flags", areas of concern, or barriers to success. It will help us come up with answers that are unique to you and authentically showcase you. This assessment is free and lasts about 30 minutes.
The next step is to assess your interview skills through a mock interview and prepare a personalized strategy for you to improve your interview skills. This feedback session can last one or two hours. Our unique and extremely effective approach in preparing you what to expect during the interview and how to handle difficult questions has been praised in testimonials from our successful applicants. We take pride in making a huge difference in the way you present yourself in the initial session versus the actual interview. We will then offer you a plan of action with mock interview and feedback with us, as well as individual or group practice that will help you excel during the actual interview. We encourage our applicants to work in groups, to expose yourself to as many different interview styles as possible, and we will provide you with practice buddies if needed.
