The current job market is an exceptionally difficult and stressful one. For any single job there are probably at least ten times more applicants than there would have been two years ago. Not only that but the quality of candidates is also much higher as more and more seasoned and experienced workers join the growing numbers of unemployed.


What does that mean for you? It means that you will have to work harder at standing out from the crowd. That means a better and more tailored CV and lots of interview preparation.  It also means being aware of your transferrable skills and understanding how they will fit in to another organisation's requirements.


So when you walk out of your next interview...


Will you be smiling, head held high and confident in the knowledge that you have performed well, given a good account of yourself and are well on the road to landing the job that's going to get you back to work, advance your career, allow you to focus on your passions, and provide you with the pay and lifestyle you want for yourself and your family?


Or, will you have that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach?


You know the one...That feeling of disappointment and dread in knowing that you'll be back on the job hunt tomorrow.


Many of us find it difficult to understand what a employer is looking for and how to match our experience, achievements and skills to get the job we want.  So interviewees often feel like they lost out on a better job because they weren't able to make the most of their chance. At Consulting Excellence we provide one-to-one coaching and group interview training workshops (including Public Courses) to help you achieve your goal in getting that dream job or promotion. 


One-to-one Interview Coaching

From as little as a one hour session we will significantly improve your chances of getting that job by:

  • Equipping you with the techniques to demonstrate to interviewers your competencies (skills, knowledge, behaviours and personal attributes) and match these against what the interviewer is looking for
  • Giving you the confidence to sell yourself and demonstrate you are a good fit to the job
  • Helping you understand the rationale behind and answer those difficult questions
  • Providing you with the skills to prepare for and excel at interviews
  • Identifing gaps for improvement and how to fill these 
  • Improving your interview technique through mock interviews with a highly experienced interviewer (optional) 


Our coaching is tailored specifically to you, your experience, your needs and the job(s) you are targetting.  It is a very focused and highly interactive process which will yield real improvements to your interview performance.
