Do employment interviews make you uncomfortable?

Can you confidently articulate your success stories?

Do you want to get an offer and close the deal?

If your answer is “yes”, you are in good company. Most people are intimidated with interviews. Some have lost confidence when they are rejected or when an interview goes awry. Some are uncomfortable talking about themselves, while others haven’t yet learned good interviewing skills. Whatever your interview fears, we can assist you to confidently articulate your unique promise of value – what you are bringing to the table.

Remember that the interview is a two-way street. The employer has a position to fill and you have the skill sets for the position. It’s your job to convince the employer that of all the candidates in the pool, you’re the one!

How can we help?

Interview coaching is a valuable investment, and the success of your interview hinges on how prepared you are. We want you to be confident, from the moment you’re invited to the interview to the time you negotiate your compensation package. How better to do so than to schedule a few practice sessions with us?

We model our sessions using behavioural type questions where you have to recall stories from the past that address the challenges you faced, the approach you used and the results or outcomes. This method allows you to tackle any questions asked whether they are framed as traditional or behavioural questions.

Our interactions involve more than reviewing interview questions. We make sure you are able to dive deep to uncover the value you are creating (or have created) for your employers, and stop giving hollow, surface-level answers.

When we work with clients – whether it’s through a career transition, developing a professional resume, or coach them on interview strategies – we use a ‘strategy tree’ approach, which addresses: Why (Purpose), What (Value Proposition), Who (Target Company) and How (How to win). Some clients equate our process to a SWOT Analysis where we identify internal strengths and weaknesses, as well as external opportunities and threats. It is true, because we want to make sure to cover as many bases as possible.

Our Process

Comments from Interview Coaching Clients:

Below is a un-edited letter from Mara detailing what it was like working with me:

“I came to the Wright Career Solution as someone who would get an interview, but not get a job offer. I wondered what was it that I was doing to get so close yet still so far? Why weren’t employers committing to my vision of the role? So, I contacted Daisy through her website, and she got back to me very quickly.

We had a few weeks to get prepared for my interview and true to her word she asked me the questions I had thought I had asked myself enough times. Somehow, she got me to dive deep into the reasons why I was not getting the job offer. I realized through working with Daisy that I have never been well prepared for an interview and I was just finding this out now!!

She coached my language use, how to market myself, how to look at a job description and dissect it to its tiniest parts and build it back together to a riveting story that captivates the audience of my hiring committee.

Thank you Daisy! The Wright Career Solution got my career in the right direction! Everyone should invest in a career coach.

Mara!”

Project Manager, Health IT Services

“You really helped me focus/craft my answers to broad questions by fitting them into the framework of: circumstance, action I took, result, and how I’d apply that to the role.  I really needed that because of the breadth and depth of my work experiences.

You gave me really constructive feedback on my interview style, posture, “presence”, etc.  I took them to heart and was cognizant of your feedback during subsequent interviews.

It’s no coincidence that 2 of the 3 roles I interviewed for – after working with you – went all the way to 3rd/final interviews.  While the roles were definitely well aligned with my skill set, if I didn’t execute at the interview phases, I would not have proceeded successfully through the process.” ~Director, Governance & Relationship Manager
