"I strongly believe the time and effort Gary put in to ensure I was prepared for my job interview such as the practical training and also putting my mind at ease was instrumental and resulted in me achieving my desired dream job role."
Who is the course suitable for?
1-to-1 interview training is ideal for anyone who is looking for help in preparing for an upcoming job interview. That includes face-to-face, telephone and remote interviews (Skype, Zoom, etc). Although we are based near Glasgow, our coaching sessions have also been used by people from Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Paisley, Dumfries, London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool, Bristol, Cardiff, Nottingham, Essex, Yorkshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, Kent, Cambridge, Oxford, Hertfordshire, Cornwall and Wales.
During your coaching session we'll explore all the different types of interviews that happen these days (from informal to assessment days) and what you should be doing behind the scenes as part of your preparation. We'll also look at interview etiquette, avoiding common mistakes and overcoming nerves. Most importantly, we'll discuss how to handle competency-based questions. These are the most common type of questions used in interviews these days and can be extremely tricky to answer. We'll show you exactly how to use the STAR technique to answer these questions. Many people are familiar with the STAR technique, but few actually know how to use it effectively. We'll also look at alternatives to STAR, including SOAR and WHO. Furthermore, we'll do a mini mock interview with you so you can put some of these skills into practice.
Between 1 hour and 90 minutes
Delivered remotely over Zoom or Teams
"Met up with Gary for some prep before an interview for a management position and his advice, enthusiasm and ability to coax ideas out of me was incredible. I've never felt so prepared going into an interview."
"I recently had the pleasure of being motivated, coached, and encouraged by Gary, during my preparation for Civil Service interview. Gary is a great communicator, attentive, and professional mentor. During our sessions, I felt at ease and more importantly my confidence grew. English is not my first language, and I have always felt inadequate, but after his training, I realized that I had great potential. I would highly recommend his service. Thank you, Gary."
