How Does Interview Coaching Work?

Each coaching session is unique, custom to your situation and upcoming interview(s). During your session, we can:

  • Unearth and clarify your value proposition.
  • Think through the hiring team’s needs, and your approach strategy, with questions like, “what do you think they are really looking for in this opportunity?” and “how does that experience meet their pain point?”  
  • Help you nail common and/or challenging questions like: “Tell me about yourself” “What is your greatest weakness,” “What are your salary expectations,” “Why does diversity matter to you,” “Why did you leave your last role.”
  • Address gaps or tricky points in your background or resume.

And much more. In short, our process is designed to help you think beyond cookie-cutter answers and tell impactful STAR stories.

How many sessions will you need?

It may vary depending on your experiences interviewing at the level you’re aiming for, your work history, and other factors. While we are happy to do single sessions, we’ve found that for coaching to be most impactful, most people need more than one 60-minute session. You get out of this process what you put into it. We certainly recommend doing the post-session homework to get the maximum benefit from interview coaching.

The Stakes are Higher than Ever

Today’s job search is very different than it was just 10 years ago. The competition is stiffer and the process more rigorous. HR leaders, search committees, boards and executives have heard it all. 

Standing out requires far more than the right experience and cookie-cutter interview answers. 

When playing in this high-stakes environment, the critical edge you get from our advanced interview coaching ensures you’re set to show up at your best: at ease, confident, prepared, able to navigate both the expected and the unexpected.
