The job interview is one of life’s more stressful experiences, sitting right up there with the emotional upheaval of moving home.
Part of the stress comes from trying to second-guess the questions we’ll be asked, part of it is the sudden doubts abut your suitability and still more comes from wondering if the job will actually turn out to be the satisfying and rewarding experience you thought it would be when you sent in your CV.
It doesn’t matter how senior the role, all interviews carry the same unspoken truth: they’re a ritual in which judgement will be passed: judgement about you, your personality, your skills and your ‘fit’ with other humans.
It’s no wonder we lose sleep over them!
We fret about what the interviewer will want to know, the best way to answer questions that seem designed to trip you up and whether there’s a killer question you really ought to know how to answer – but won’t be able to.
And there are the age-old dilemmas: should you ask about salary? When does being ambitious come across as being too ambitious? What questions would a good candidate ask?
The result? Excitement, panic, doubts, a desperation to do well, stress, frustration and nerves.
How our Interview Coaching sessions can help you prepare for your next career opportunity
Before you go to an interview, it’s essential to understand your strengths and values so you have the confidence to interview the company as much as they interview you. Finding the right fit when looking for a new job is essential – and cultural fit isn’t a one-way street that runs in the employer’s favour. It must be right for you, too.
Our Interview Coaching sessions will give you all the skills you need to approach your interview with the confidence you’ll need to portray exactly the right skills and qualities to put you in the best possible position of securing an offer.
Over 4 hour-long sessions, our Life Coach, Heeral Gudka, will take you through a personalised programme that will help you to conquer pre-interview anxiety, prepare in the most effective way, anticipate and adapt to the types of questions you’ll be asked and formulate strategies to make sure the opportunity is the right one for you.
