Sound Like You?

Does this sound like your situation?

  • You are not getting enough interviews
  • You are not getting past the screening interview
  • You are not moving forward through the interviews
  • You are not making it all the way to getting an offer

And these are mindset issues you may be dealing with that inhibit you from being confident and poised:

  • You believe the interviewers will be rough on you
  • You don't realize you should be evaluating the interviewers, company and job also
  • You feel this is such an artifical process
  • You don't want to come across like you are "blowing your horn"
  • You think you have to be someone radically different than your natural self
  • You think the interviewers should control the process
  • You get thrown off with "trick" questions and gap area questions
  • You have trouble giving brief "on target" answers that are compelling

How I Can Help

My job is to be gentle and supportive.  Not add to the stress.  All my clients build confidence and capability as we work together.

First I help you develop solid interview content. In the interview practice we practice the beginning then the middle then the end of interviews. You will get a video recording of the session you can refer to later.

Here are the things we will do to make your interviewing more effective and help you stand out among other job candidates:

  • What to do before and during interviews to be more impressive
  • How to accurately and concisely answer questions
  • How to stay confident and steady during interviews
  • How to handle questions about areas where you have little experience
  • How to handle difficult or tricky behavioral or logic questions
  • What savvy questions to ask that make you look more busiiness connected
  • What subtle questions to ask to check out the boss and the group
  • How to follow up after interviews to further impress interviewers

High Tech Experience

In my Director roles throughout my high tech career, I led initiatives focused on  product development improvement, IT system deployment, technical organization redesigns and technical leader development. So I am uniquely effective when coaching executives and managers in technical groups like engineering, IT and product management.  I know your language and job challenges. This enables me to better increase your value-add messaging, impact and influence.

This article tells you the things to look for
and the questions to ask to get the right coach for you.
