Hello! I’m Dawn!
Career & Interview Coach & Trainer
“I’m the Founder of Your Interview Coach set up in 2013 when my idea to help both candidates and hiring managers through the complexities of the recruitment and selection process became a passion and a burning desire!”
Every client is different and they come from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. They also have a broad range of previous experience of interviewing.
For that reason there is no ‘off the shelf’ packages here:
- Free Consultation to establish your requirements
- Every coaching session is tailored and bespoke
We need to know your previous experience (or lack of experience) and we need to understand your aspirations, goals, and career objectives before we book any coaching session.
Passionate about supporting your success
Professional and approachable
Highly driven to helping you reach your full potential
- Committed to Empowering you by sharing knowledge, insights, tools, and techniques
My Interviewing Experience
The majority of my interviewing experience was gained during 12 years as an In-house Recruiter: 6 years within Manufacturing and Engineering and 6 years of experience working in a Corporate Bank in the City of London.
Prior to being an in-house Recruiter I had hiring experience as a team leader in the NHS and then as a Manager in the Private Healthcare Sector. I was responsible for the recruitment for the South-East of England and this gave me valuable experience to move into HR.

“In my 20 years in the recruitment industry, I have had one of the most enjoyable business working relationships with Dawn, she has a great sense of humour and has that willingness to go the extra mile coupled with her professional attitude has made all my dealings with her extremely pleasurable."
Nick Kebbell, NDK Consultancy – Technology Recruitment
"After applying to several roles for which I had the necessary qualification and experience, I wasn’t selected due to my poor performance in interviews. Then I decided to contact Dawn and I must say it was the best decision I have made to get a job."
Financial Controller Essex.
"After several years of seeking a certain position but being unsuccessful at interviews. The next interview, I was offered the role and I have no doubt that Dawn’s assistance played a significant part"

How to improve your LinkedIn profile in under 5 minutes. LinkedIn is the most powerful tool you have during the lockdown and beyond. LinkedIn should be your ‘go-to’ platform to connect, engage, and network.
With our current social distancing measures set to be with us for some time, we expect video interviews to be the main method. Whether it’s Skype, Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp or MS Teams, this blog will help you think about how to prepare and handle this type of interview.
