What are interview-coaching sessions like?

Depending on your industry and your individual role in it, interview-coaching sessions could include any of the following topics. Please be aware that not all of the topic items can be covered in a single session. Because about 50% of my sessions are conducted via video for clients unable to attend in-person meetings, some of the items would not be applicable. For your future use, you are encouraged to make smartphone audio recordings of all of our sessions. Video sessions can be recorded on your computer.

The first and most important aspect of the coaching is that I need to understand you, your professional background, and your career circumstances because interview coaching is custom tailored to your specific needs. This is not a cookie cutter approach.

Following are the steps you and I will take.

  • We’ll review interview techniques overall and the criteria employers apply for hiring purposes.
  • We’ll mock-interview by using common interview questions as well as specific questions from the job description of an actual position you may be applying for.
  • I’ll videotape your answering three common interview questions, and together we’ll analyze the tape and determine specific areas for improvement.
  • You’ll receive an evaluation and instant feedback on your performance.
  • I’ll guide you in how to manage different kinds of interview scenarios—for example, telephone interviews, one-on-one interviews, panel interviews, Skype and video interviews, behavioral interviews, situational interviews, skill-based or competency-based interviews, and presentations.
  • Each session consists of our going through many interview questions and answers—from traditional questions to very challenging ones—for the purpose of your gaining self-assurance by practicing and being critiqued, with my making suggestions for good answers. The objective is for you to gain know-how and experience that will lead to self-confidence.
  • The interview is a competition and a performance, and all parties know there is only one winner. Therefore, I will teach you how to develop winning strategies for organizing yourself, as well as planning for, researching, and closely focusing on your next job.
  • I’ll provide you with feedback on the first impression you make. I’ll comment on the appropriateness of your attire. I’ll assess your visual presentation, tone of voice, body language, and basic ability to build rapport during an interview.
  • We’ll talk about ways to overcome stress and nervousness, how to keep calm, how to maintain focus, and how to think on your feet throughout the interview so that you look assured and become able to project self-confidence.
  • We’ll work together at identifying your own key selling points, and we’ll design a strategy to convey them.
  • Jointly we will identify weaknesses and turn negatives into positives.
  • I’ll provide you with written strategic questions you should ask the interviewer, and I’ll recommend how to phrase them.
  • I will gladly debrief you after an actual job interview to help you analyze and discuss your performance and to identify and resolve before your next interview any weaknesses that occurred during the interview.
  • We can strategize next steps, discuss how to follow up after an interview, and—critically important—determine how to evaluate and negotiate a job offer. This step typically recovers the expense of your coaching sessions severalfold!

      Roger, thanks so much for voicing your opinion. It is likely that others feel the same way thus I should address it.

      In comparing my fees to other career coaches I found that my fees are a kind of average. It certainly seems expensive, especially if one is out of work and has no current income. Roger, to the best of my knowledge, career coaches do not provide a guarantee that their clients will get a job. This does not mean that there aren’t any. I am simply not aware of such. Logically speaking it would be very difficult to guarantee a job since the hiring process is extremely complex. Typically, a guarantee is given for a product that is defective. However in this case the product is actually a service. If the client is not doing his homework or there are some other issues such as lack of specific skills or ineffective networking and possibly several other hurdles the chances to become employed are not that good. And that can not be directly blamed on the quality of service a career coach is providing.

      I hired many, many dozens of people in my career close to 35 years as a hiring manager, so I know. The fees that I charge my clients are for the value they receive based on my ten years of career coaching and interview preparation experience and primarily for my unique expertise in this area. Honestly, (and happily!) I have no shortage of clients. In fact, probably 80% of my clients are referrals, which means that those who paid my fees were happy with my services and saw the value sufficiently to recommend me to their spouses, family and acquaintances. In order to help my clients I am providing some incentives for savings via packages. But otherwise everybody pays the same price.

        I would like to mention that Alex often makes presentations and would suggest anyone with interest check the calendar. You will pick-up extremely valuable information and get a chance to meet him and see for yourself.

        Alex has coached a number of my clients and they have landed great jobs. As a career professional with 30 years of experience, there are no guarantees of landing when you invest in career marketing or resume writing services but most people are not trained in how to best present themselves in the job search.

        You just have to ask yourself, am I sure I am going to win the job without help?
