yourself at Interviews
Have you seen an advert for a job that interests or excites you –
but are put off by the process….the application form…CV writing…the
Applying for a promotion at work or applying for a new job is a bit like
planning to do the Great North Run; you need time to prepare and commitment
to your goal.
Good communication and presentation skills are very often sited as the
key difference between being a successful candidate and not getting the
job. During my career I have been involved in recruitment and selection
of staff at all levels of organisational life. As part of this I have
sat on numerous interview panels and willed interviewees to sell themselves
On a scale of 1 to 10 how well do you sell yourself at an interview?
As a Motivational Coach and Trainer, I help people to get the job that
they want with a combination of presentation skills training and interview
“Preparing for this interview was a very different experience!
In previous interviews, the feedback had been that I had all the right
qualities but didn’t sell myself as well as the successful candidate.
Through interview coaching I have worked on my interview technique &
been able to be absolutely focused on selling myself; not allowing those
interview nerves to get the better of me…I felt like I was interviewing
the panel too. It is very empowering going into an interview feeling like
that! Excellent value for money; I would recommend interview coaching
to anyone who is working towards an important job application”

After starting my career in NHS clinical practice as a nurse working with
people facing life threatening illnesses; I decided to move into Training
& Education in 1993 to inspire, motivate and support healthcare workers
in their day to day work.
When I was nursing, I worked with people who were facing life threatening
illnesses. As people approach the end of their lives, I never ever worked
with someone who said “I wish that I had stayed in that job that
I didn’t like a bit longer “.
There are so many exciting job opportunities out there, don’t let
the process of changing jobs or your anxiety about performing at interviews
put you off applying.
When a client calls me to tell me how well the interview went & that
they have decided to accept the job that is a great feeling. The logo
for my company is a person reaching for the stars and by getting the job
that you want, you are reaching for your stars.
