How do you know if you need an Interview Coach? 

What is Interview Coaching?

An interview coach typically works with individuals who recognise they need further support to handle the interview process.  It’s often a job they really want and they don’t want to take the risk of not being as prepared as they can.  

This type of coaching session will be very specific to the job and company they have applied.  Although, the skills learnt during an interview coaching session will be highly relevant for future interviews. 

A good interview coach will share the tools, techniques and tips on preparing for any type of interview (Panel Interview, Assessment Centre, Behavioural Competency Style, Formal and Informal etc.) and any question.

How do you know if you need an interview coach?

Here are some of the reasons my clients book a session:

• Keep getting rejections (even if you know you can do the job)
• Lack confidence during interviews or get nervous
• An important interview scheduled (possibly progression or promotion)
• It’s been a while since you’ve attended an interview: Same job or company for years
• School, college or university student: Never had an interview and don’t know what to expect and therefore, what or how to prepare

What are the benefits from interview coaching?

Here are some of the benefits of hiring an interview coach:

• Learn about interview strategies and techniques
• Understand the types of questions asked during an interview
• What and how to prepare for any type of interview
• Mock interview: A chance to practise and receive quality feedback
• Insights on how hiring managers and recruiters make decisions
• An understanding of the information gathered and used to assess competence

About Dawn Moss

Career & Interview Coach & Trainer

Dawn has worked as an in-house recruiter in Human Resources for 12 years.  She worked in a manufacturing and engineering environment for 6 years and a Corporate Bank in the City of London for a further 6 years.  Since leaving the Financial Services Sector she’s been running her own Training and Coaching Consultancy for the last 5 years.

People I’ve worked with….

"After several years of seeking a certain position but being unsuccessful at interviews, I reached the decision to seek assistance prior to a further forthcoming interview.  The advice and assistance I received from Dawn in the session was extremely useful.  After the following interview I was offered the role and I have no doubt that Dawn’s assistance played a significant part in this outcome."

Jonathan, Essex. 

"Executive jobs you really want don’t come around that often, so I sought out Dawn’s expertise to ensure I maximised my chances of getting the job. Dawn is knowledgeable, and friendly and was great at celebrating what I already knew and provided constructive feedback on how I could improve.  Equipped with new knowledge, confidence and commitment to put the work in, I got the job."

Head of Department, National Charity.

"Despite having the necessary qualifications and never applying for jobs beyond my capabilities, I always failed the interview stage. I cannot recommend DAWN too highly to anyone who is experiencing the same difficulties I used to have at the interview stage."

Taylor, Part-Qualified Accountant.

“I recently found out I was successful at an interview and was now required to go through an assessment day. I was dreading it. Dawn was instrumental in getting me through the assessment day. She helped me to work out how I could prepare and what the priority areas were. If you have an interview or an assessment day coming up I would highly recommend that you contact Dawn”
