“Hello I’m Dawn, 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 passionate and a burning desire!
Since 2013 it’s been a roller coaster of a journey and I’m so lucky and privileged to have supported so many professional individuals onto the next step of their career ladder.
I’ve written several books helping new hiring managers and candidates and co-authored another with a business associate Peter Kelleher MSc., MILM from Smarter Thinking and CareersAdviceCentre. I’ve also successfully supported the transition of hundreds of public sector professionals in their career.”
“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.
Dawn would always go out her way to make sure I had accurate and detailed job descriptions before I conducted a search and as a result would make the search process that much easier and was always very supportive throughout the recruitment process.
I have recruited for many banks and I can safely say Dawn is an expert and highly experienced in conducting competency and behavioural based interviews across all job functions and as a result this has given Dawn a very successful reputation for hiring the right person.
I would highly recommend Dawn to any organisation”Nick Kebbell
