Professional Interview Coaching
At The CV Centre, day in day out, we successfully coach our clients to truly excel at interview. This enables us to bring you the very best of what we have learned - helping you to excel at interview yourself.
When it comes to interviews, people often think, "Well, I'll just turn up and be myself." Which is fine, but it won’t get you the job! You need to plan and prepare for an interview as you are still up against many other applicants and this is your key opportunity to make an impact. Your CV may get your foot in the door but you're on your own in the interview – and sometimes the most able candidate on paper can really shoot themselves in the foot when they actually get to the interview.
On average, there's likely to be at least 5 other candidates being interviewed for the same vacancy. So, everything else being equal, that gives you, at the most, a 20% chance of getting the job. But there's so much you can do to improve your odds of success.
What can The CV Centre do to help you?
The CV Centre offers a telephone-based interview coaching service to help give you that winning edge. (And, for no extra charge, we can also work by webcam if you prefer.)
In our interview coaching sessions we can show you how to develop a winning strategy – planning and preparing for every eventuality and learning how to handle every possible kind of interview, from a brief chat over the telephone through to a trip to an assessment centre.
Your interview coach can take you through plenty of real interview questions and make sure you know how to avoid cliché and really make an impact when handling both the classic questions – and the really tough ones that interviewers can throw at you.
And we can take you beyond the interview to discuss what you need to do to close the deal to your advantage.
You'll find our interview coaching useful whether you are trying to land your first job, returning to the workplace after a career break or simply looking to take another step up the career ladder.
Our interview coaching service is also supported by a 100% Money-Back Guarantee.
"I had the interview this morning and they called me at lunchtime to make me an immediate offer. I am over the moon! I so much wanted this job and your coaching service gave me a real boost."Phil Brown, Graphic Designer, Manchester
What does our interview coaching service include?
Your interview coach will work with you to tailor our service to your precise needs but we can include any of the following at your request:
How do I place an order?
Our fees for interview coaching start at just £41.50 for a 30-minute session and are based on the amount of time you book; the more time you book the lower the rate per 30-minute session becomes. For example, if you book for 2 hours you will pay just £145.50, a saving of £20.50.
And, if you place your order in May, then we are offering a 25% discount on all our coaching fees, meaning you can book your first session for as little as £31.12.
Clearly, the more time you can devote to this, the greater your chances of winning that job. But please note that you can split your time into as many 30-minute sessions as you wish. We often find that two one-hour sessions one week apart are normally more productive than one single two-hour session.
And we also have interview coaches available in the evening and at weekends, as we do appreciate that "normal working hours" aren't always the most convenient time for our clients.
"The interview was as tough as I expected it to be - and they really put me on the spot with some of their questions. But the mock interviews we did together last week obviously did the trick – because the job offer letter arrived today. A big thank you to my coach."Richard Dunne, Project Manager, Cheltenham
I am delighted to give you my personal guarantee that if you're not 100% happy with your interview coaching then we'll refund your money in full.
Simple as that. Customer satisfaction has always been my highest priority.
