Testimonials

  • Review: The best interview coaching I've had in a long time. I was provided with virtually all of the interview assessment criteria and scoring needed. I managed to improve the depth and quality of interview answers, and put this into practice in real interviews. Real interview training and gets straight to the point, lets you know exactly what you need and how to prepare. Thank you very much.

    Thank you Elizabeth for your patience and professionalism. English is not my first language but I followed the skills I learnt during the session and I have now got a job offer after failing three times last year! I will recommend you to my friends and colleagues.

    She is fantastic. My second experience working with her shows how expertise. I already recommend her to my friends so recommend her to you too if you want a big success :)

    I had a great experience and particularly enjoyed the video sessions. I felt encouraged and motivated. Elizabeth has changed how I feel about job interviews for the better. Anaesthetist.

    I was able to see Elizabeth at short notice after being selected for interview. Her initial consultation over Skype helped me assess my development areas and a two hour in person session really help me with improving my responses, focus on key messages and be much more conscious of my body language. With Elizabeth's help I was successfully appointed as Managing Director of a pioneering Fair Trade company.

    I contacted Elizabeth as I had upcoming interviews for graduate schemes with two firms. I had never attended a competency-based/ strength-based interview before so I was feeling overwhelmed and unprepared. I don't think I truly understood what graduate employers were looking for or how to use the STAR response effectively. Elizabeth was extremely helpful. We spoke on the phone and I told Elizabeth what I was applying for etc. We then booked a Skype session. On Skype, Elizabeth had prepared a shared powerpoint which outlined what skills employers look for, what types of questions they ask and some examples, how to approach the questions and how they are marked. She gave me a list of competencies to prepare, following the criteria outlined in the powerpoint, for the next session. After the skype call she emailed me the powerpoint and voice recording of the conversation- VERY USEFUL! Our next session was the mock interview. This was the real turning point for me. Elizabeth would act as the interviewer asking me typical questions across a range of competencies. After hearing my response she would then recommend ways to improve my answers and body language. This session was also recorded on video which she emailed to me. Throughout my whole experience with Interview Skills Clinic Elizabeth was very quick to reply to emails and was available to speak on the phone if I had any queries.
    I was lucky enough to get offers from both companies- I would not have had this outcome without Elizabeth's amazing coaching, motivation and support. She really built up my confidence and understanding of the interview process. I would highly recommend contacting her if you are going for an interview as it really could be the difference between getting the job or not. Thank you very much Elizabeth!!

    I am in no doubt that I owe my interview success to Elizabeth. I came to her after a tough year at work, too many rejected applications and one particularly disastrous interview. Crippled with self-doubt, I had nothing good to say about myself. Elizabeth used her thorough understanding of how government competence-based interviews work to help me construct compelling stories that gave clear evidence of my skills, abilities, experience and knowledge. Armed with well-prepared answers and Elizabeth’s helpful guidance on self-presentation, I was able to approach my interview with confidence and give a good account of myself. I am very grateful to Elizabeth for her expert coaching and, yes, it was worth absolutely every penny!

    I met Elizabeth in a difficult period of my life. I was getting interviews but I always failed. I felt frustrated. The great thing was that she was very empathetic and made real efforts to find out what would be the best choice for me. She highlighted interview mistakes I was not aware of and improved the way I communicate. I also got closer to find out what is the job that would suit me. I managed to get two jobs since our sessions, both of them are positions I really wanted. It took me a long time but finally I am getting my confidence back. I would definitely recommend her coaching sessions.

    After missing out on two roles at the final interview stage, I felt I needed some some help to push through that barrier, especially with a final stage interview for my dream job coming up.

    I initially spoke with Elizabeth on the phone and after our first conversation I felt sure that she would be a great person to work with.

    We had a very detailed meeting, and it was obvious how well Elizabeth had prepared for it. She made herself familiar with the job description I had sent her and had prepared specific questions based on it. I really felt that Elizabeth had designed our meeting around my specific needs.

    During our meeting Elizabeth coached me through some terrific interview strategies. She also gave me valuable feedback about how I was coming across and my interview style. I felt so prepared for my interview.

    When my interview came around I felt confident and prepared..... and I got the job!

    Elizabeth is so knowledgeable and a consummate professional. I'd have no hesitation in recommending her and working with her again.

    Thanks for your help Elizabeth

    I only have one session with Elizabeth and was planning the second one with her. But before the second session started, I had passed an interview and got a job offer. I learnt a lot from the first session with Elizabeth, how to present myself, interview skills. The most import thing is she help me build up my confidence, and help me believe myself can do it.

    Just found out that I was successful in a recent interview after receiving coaching from Elizabeth. Can't thank her enough. The best money I have spent. She really gets what's required in an interview and has a great way of communicating that to people. If you're serious about passing your next job interview you need to speak to Elizabeth.

    Elizabeth was so helpful in explaining what interviewers were after and she gave me the skills to get my story across in a way that gave them what they needed. It's one thing having the answers, and another thing being able to articulate them. Elizabeth's experience and expertise were invaluable. Thanks.

    Thank you very much Elizabeth, the coaching was perfectly targeted to some challenging interview questions. I haven't had an interview for four years and coaching helped me to target those questions on a more senior level. Also, you helped me to develop my own authentic examples and improve my confidence. Furthermore, I found coaching in regards to my body language, voice and tempo incredibly helpful as I had the tendency to rush through answers. The end result was a bit unexpected as I was offered a contract after my first interview for the job I wanted. I know that coaching played a fundamental part in this. Thanks again!

    Having failed 3 partners interview in a row, and feeling deflated for a very long time, I decided to see Elizabeth. As soon as I met here for our very first consultation she made me feel at ease and opened my eyes instantly about my own abilities. She then taught me techniques which I will take with me to my grave.
    If your having any difficulty what so ever in regards to any type of interview, I recommend you to see Elizabeth Conley. She's thoughtful, caring, a hard working professional and very easy to approach in any situation.

    I booked for training session for my skype interview. It was sooo great and very beneficial session. Spent 1 hour with Elizabeth in skype and she guide me to all importants information and guide me to step by step on expected questions.

    With her training i manged to pass my first interview with positive feedback.

    I recommend Elizabeth to anyone who wanted perfect guides prior to any interviews as she shows a unique skills and share professional knowlage

    After 4 unsuccessful civil service interviews, Elizabeth provided the insights and expertise neccessary for me to succeed in the interview process and as a result I was successful on the 5th attempt. Looking forward to starting my new career very shortly. Thanks Elizabeth!

    Thank you Elizabeth for your valuable help. I had an amazing training and managed to get my first job in less than one month. Very friendly, supportive and professional!
    I reduced my stress with your professional guide and answer with confident all the interview questions.

    Elizabeth gave me valuable tips, which made a vital difference to my preparation for interviews and overall performance. She is a really warm person, who built up my confidence and was very encouraging when I came to her after a number of unsuccessful interviews. I also found it really useful that she offers training at weekends and on Skype. I would definitely recommend Elizabeth's coaching, which led to 2 job offers for me after 2 sessions. Thank you!

    This was the second successful job search that I have worked with Liz to prepare for interview. She provides that extra insight into what the employer is looking for based on the job description and the candidate specification. Liz helped me to effectively prepare and highlight my skills and strengths in the interview. She managed to fit me into her schedule at very short notice for which I am very grateful. Thank you very much Liz.

    Being an A level student, I had very little experience with interviews and I had four upcoming interviews to study pharmacy, which worried me.

    My biggest concern was the Russel group universities. A week before my first interview, Elizabeth increased my confidence greatly, as she did not only prepare general and mathematical questions, she also went out her way to prepare questions related to my course.

    Also, her feedback and coaching was the most helpful. She picked up areas that needed improvement and provided great feedback. We also focused on how I spoke and my posture and what to do in stressful situations.

    I was prepared even for the most challenging questions. Due to this, there were no questions that "tripped" me up.

    I was successful at all my interviews and obtained offers in 1-3 days.

    There was this warmth and enthusiasm about Elizabeth that made me feel comfortable.

    It was money DEFINITELY well spent and I would not hesitate to recommend her because it will set you up for success in the future!

    I had four lengthy sessions with Elizabeth, with numerous emails and quick calls, over the period of six months while interviewing for several Senior Management positions in the public sector, the final one successfully.

    Beforehand I had thought I was quite good at presenting myself confidently, but her attention to detail (hand gestures too violent, where to look when thinking, taking off watches that clunk on the table, etc, etc), and ability to see what it was required in each interview, transformed by performance. She was also very strong outside the practice sessions in reviewing my stock of competency examples and refocusing them on the skills required.

    I think she provides a nice balance of professionalism with warmth, and clearly wants to understand her clients, their idiosyncratic strengths and foibles.

    The experience has very much changed my view of interviewing from a 'win-some/lose-some' amateur approach, to a career-transforming skill to be acquired and worked at in its own right.

    Thank you, Elizabeth, I will certainly ask for your help again if and when I face the next step up. And thank you for dragging me kicking and screaming into the 21st Century with Skype!

    Stephen

    Elizabeth,

    Thanks you so much for your assistance in helping me prepare for a Grade 6 competency based interview. As a Chartered Surveyor working in the Civil Service I felt that I had a sufficient professional skills for the role but I recognised that I needed help with my presentation skills and your coaching over a couple of sessions was instrumental in getting the role. You recognised the areas I needed to work on and set me tasks that would help me and give me confidence.

    Money well spent, I will definitely recommend you to my friends and colleagues.

    Simon

    I applied for an HEO position at the Civil Service. I had no idea how to improve my scores but after the first telephone call with Elizabeth it was clear she knew the ins and outs of how the interviews are marked. We went through the competency questions and scenarios in detail, and at each stage she provided me with feedback and coached me so that I could draw upon my own experience and make the answers stronger. I was successful at interview at both roles that I applied for. Apart from this, I found Elizabeth to be an experienced, kind and encouraging coach. I think she really cares and that's not something that you come across every day. She was easy to get ahold of via email whenever I had a question and I'm grateful for all her help. Thank you Elizabeth!

    I can honestly say, this is my first experience of having a coach and I cannot recommend it enough. In such a short time, Elizabeth had identified the problem and we began working on it instantly. Her intuition, insight and communication skills are second to none. In 3 hours I learnt more about myself, my abilities, strengths etc than I have attending numerous courses. Not to mention the rapport between us was instant. I was shortlisted and offered the job - which I accepted. SUCCESS!I

    Elizabeth is brilliant and can't thank her enough for helping with my confidence and helping me get the job I wanted. She helped me to overcome nerves and how to apply body language. Thank you Elizabeth. Community Care Officer.

    Hi Elizabeth, Thank for your excellent training and support which helped me get the job. The sessions really helped with building my confidence. Clinical Fellow, Trauma and Orthopaedics, NHS.

    Elizabeth is a fab coach. I could build up my confidence and interviews techniques.
    She was very supportive.Thanks to her. After my session with her, I could pass several jobs interviews ang got my job at the end :) Office Administrator

    I really enjoyed Elizabeth's coaching style and learnt a great deal from the sessions. Our focus was on answering competency based questions, and I found that even though I had taken quite a number of competency based interviews, I still had quite a bit to learn about how to properly master them. Elizabeth was a great help in achieving that goal. Manager. Ofcom

    Prior to working with Elizabeth I really struggled with job interviews. I was nervous and had little self confidence when it came to job interviews. Elizabeth's coaching completely changed that. She showed me different ways of preparing for interviews and conducting yourself to convince the interviewer that you are the right candidate for the job. For that I am extremely grateful. I would definitely recommend Elizabeth's coaching

    Many thanks to Elizabeth who helped me with my interview technique which included verbal style and body language. The practice sessions and preparation meant that I 'hit the ground running' at the start of the interview and had lots of energy. The result was that I got a job where there was very stiff competition. I'd definitely recommend Elizabeth to anyone seeking to perform well in an interview situation and maximise their chances. I'd especially recommend the 1-2-1 / face-to-face sessions -

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your hard work Elizabeth. I was struggling with my interview skills while I was going for interviews. I came across your website and I contacted you for interview advice and help. Thank you so much for fitting me in such short notice and helping me to achieve my potential you have done a great job. Pooja. Secretarial NHS.

    I was not contemplating a service like this, nor was I even aware it existed, but after a recommendation from a colleague I thought I'd try it. Elizabeth was fantastic, it's a very useful way to achieve a new outlook on how you come across in front of an interview panel, and to add that extra finesse to your performance. I'd thoroughly recommend it to anyone attending an interview, even if you feel reasonably confident already. Thanks again! BA Pilot

    I would definitely recommend Elizabeth. Having experienced multiple failed vacation scheme interviews at law firms last year, I was in certain need of interview training tailored to my specific areas of weakness. Elizabeth was able to target these precisely, helping me to better convey outward enthusiasm and to speak more clearly, both in an interview setting and in speaking in general. Indeed, the advice she lent me is applicable as much to everyday situations as to job-hunting. With her help, I was able to pass the two interviews

    Elizabeth is a star! At the last minute I booked a 2-hour session with Elizabeth in preparation for three interviews I had coming up. The interviews went very well, her strategy was extremely helpful especially in preventing me from having blank moments right after a question. The preparation process she taught me also gave me great confidence as I felt that the examples I had prepared could answer many questions,also I definitely prefer the CARE structure to STAR. I received offers from all three!! YEAY! ...

    Having worked in the mental health sector for over 10 years, I decided to go to University to study for my degree to change my career path and have a break. I decided not to work during my degree as I wanted a break and keep my focus on my studies.

    Although I don’t regret not working whilst studying, having spent a number of years not in work left be a little rusty and rough around the edges, I felt during the few interviews I had after my studies finished, I wasn't performing as well as i could which was also having an affect on my confidence.

    I used a search engine to search for an interview coach and I came across Elizabeth’s website. The website was easy to use and straightforward. Not being part of a company which offers masses of services was an advantage as it gave a personal touch and not one where money and fee's would be the main concern as i wasn’t working at the time and affordability was a key factor.

    I’m really glad I did as after speaking to Elizabeth, I didn't feel pressurised into buying a service and she allowed me to explain what I wanted, what I felt I needed improving on and how she could facilitate that process which was the key selling point for me.

    The coaching session was really helpful as it allowed me to plan my interview technique and think about my responses during an interview. Although I had come across some of the techniques prior to our session, Having Elizabeth go through it was definitely useful. I was also provided with an audio file of the session and electronic notes which was another bonus.

    The interview we prepared for did not go as successfully as I wanted it to however, with the right tools in place I felt I knew what I needed to do in preparation for any future interviews and kept working on them.

    Since then, I have been successful in a number of interviews and have accept one of those roles which I am really please about as I start my new job next week!

    In summary, I would recommend the service provided as it is a personalised, honest, professional and friendly service and she has kept in touch to see how things are! For me personally, there was a need to build my confidence, structure my interview responses and use techniques to answer questions which Elizabeth helped me with, the rest was down to me to believe in myself and perform on the day!

    Thank you very much!

    Elizabeth helped me identify the core components of competencies that I had not fully grasped in my own preparation. She also brings heaps of experience, guidance on how these complex interviews are scored. This was absolutely fundamental to my interview success. Not only was she extremely helpful, made our session comfortable, easy to get straight in to, she also helped me out at very short notice. I am sure a different outcome would have resulted if not for her expertise. Very good value for money. I will be recommending to friends.

    Having failed a similar competency based interview I thought it would be a good idea to get some coaching. Elizabeth was fantastic, preparing me just in two sessions! She really helped me prepare some good examples and improve my confidence. Thank you very much Elizabeth! I got an offer and the hard work with Elizabeth paid off!

    I needed someone who understood the public sector and I needed to prepare for a challenging interview - I took a chance with Elisabeth because I had no personal recommendation. Thankfully Elizabeth knows the public sector and how to make sure I was prepared for the interview - not easy, I was very nervous! Thanks to her approach and good advice (and some hard work myself!), I was prepared and more confident. And, I got the job! I would recommend Elizabeth to a friend.

    After several failed attempts at consulting-style interviews and assessment days, after a session with Elizabeth I really understood for the first time what the interviewer was really looking for and how they evaluated candidates. Despite a very short space of time between coaching and interview, Elizabeth helped me focus on what I needed to do to maximise the time that I had. She provided very specific and personal advice based on the job I was interviewing for. The difference in the interview was immediate and I've been able to secure an offer. Don't underestimate the value of a good coach!

    Just want to say a big thank you to Elizabeth for all the useful hints and tips. The face to face coaching was brilliant, I was expecting a serious person to tell me how rubbish I was. But Elizabeth was very pleasant and she put me immediately at ease which made the coaching much more interesting. Skype session was very useful for me and hearing myself back helped me alter the way I was answering questions and adjust my tone of voice.
    The Interview panel was blown away by the way I presented myself and answered the questions, I was successful In getting the job. I couldn't have done it without the extra help from Elizabeth.
    Please book a coaching session with Elizabeth if you have an interview coming up as this will Increase your chances of success.

    I cannot praise Elizabeth's skills enough. I had never been for an competency based interview before; in fact I haven't really had a formal interview for over thirty years. Elizabeth was very reassuring but honest. She had some great tips for building confidence and I got the job!  Elizabeth's last tip is to make sure I celebrate, which is what I am about to do. Many thanks for all your hard work. Branch Manager.

    I got in touch with Elizabeth having been extremely nervous about an upcoming interview - I have had other interviews before where I have performed very poorly, which made me feel even more anxious. I booked a free consultation and forwarded my information.

    Elizabeth was very knowledgeable, patient and kind from start to finish - she really gave me great confidence to get the job which was just what I needed.

    I booked an interview preparation session and a mock interview session, both over Skype.

    Through the preparation session, Elizabeth told me exactly how I would be assessed and created a personalised plan just for me. She tailored our sessions to focus on both my weakest points and the most important things that the interviewer was looking for. Not only did this save a considerable amount of time and worry, but I was able to go into the interview knowing that actually, I could succeed.

    The mock interview session followed a few days later, which allowed us to go over all that I had been working on, and really hone in on how to take my responses to the next level and flourish in the interview.

    AND I GOT THE JOB! Much more than that, I feel much more confident in myself and my abilities, and certainly better prepared for interview situations in the future.

    Elizabeth even suggested other resources I could use to help me further, and e-mailed me on the day. She really is a superstar and has made a massive difference to my life - I can't thank her enough for the impact she has had on my future.

    If you've got any doubts, just try a consultation - you've got everything to gain!

    I retired from the police having served thirty years, so my last interview was 31 years ago! Prior to meeting Elizabeth I had three unsuccessful interviews as I was confident that I knew what I was doing. My wife suggested interview coaching and found Elizabeth, I was initially very sceptical. After our initial telephone consultation she was able to fit me in the day before my next interview. Elizabeth was professional and put me at ease immediately. After 10 minutes she stopped the interview and explained that I needed to lose a lot of the police techniques and habits I had acquired. She pointed out mannerisms, aspects of my body language and speech that came across as negative. She gave me alternative strategies, guided and really did coach me, explaining the reasons to me. Her guidance was invaluable. I really felt Elizabeth really tailored her approach to me, rather than it just being generic. Whilst I had the relevant skills and experience for the role I was interviewing for Elizabeth showed me how to present myself and my answers in a positive way. I was offered the role and accepted. I would not hesitate to recommend Interview Skills Clinic. Thank you Elizabeth.

    I just wanted to say 'thank you' for your help preparing for my interview. Your coaching approach worked really well for me, the interview went well and I got the job! If any of my friends or family are going for a job they really want to get I'm going to recommend they get in touch with you. Rachel

    I am an international student, English is my second language and spent two hours to have interview coaching session with Elizabeth. At first, I was really worried about my language may block me to carry on the coaching session, but Elizabeth help me analyse my individual experience and the possible interview problem, give me the focus of answers of the interview question. She also encourage me to be confident with my language, and show my confidence to the interviewer. Now I get the job by practise and coaching session. The coaching was worth doing. I am very glad even it is just a part-time job position not graduate job. I hope I will get more help from her in my future possible job. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone, thank you again for your help, Elizabeth.

    Initially I was sceptical about having the session over Skype but this was unfounded and it proved invaluable. I was able to approach the interview with a new found confidence and ability to respond to all the questions put in front of me. I was offered the job at the end of the interview and I am sure this wouldn't have been the case had I not had my session with Elizabeth. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

    I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for some help with regards to interview preparations. Her help is worth the price. When I went to see to her I had missed so many employment opportunities under graduate management training schemes at the physical interview stage and I regretted why I hadn't gone sooner when a friend recommended her 6 months ago. Using her help I got the role I was after this time and was encouraged to re-apply for the graduate schemes for next year, something I had given up. My mock interview was very helpful in highlighting my weakness as well as strengths. She gave me an insight into how interviews are assessed which in turn gave the confidence during my interview. I will definitely be using her again.
    Thank you Elizabeth.

    Thanks very much Elizabeth for your help. I used a number of elements of your service, the CV check, the preparation for Interview and also the mock interview itself. All of these parts added significantly in their own way to my job application. As I was able understand more clearly what would allow me to stand out from the other candidates and ultimately led to my job success. In the mock interview I had questions that then came up in the real interview, so this allowed me to talk and promote myself, which is not something I am used to. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone and am very grateful to her for helping me gain the confidence to get the job I wanted.

    Elizabeth provided me with some very valuable tips and advice on how to approach interviews and how to consider the organisation's requirements and needs during this process. I therefore learnt how to tailor my answers to their questions based on this advice, resulting in a successful interview and securing my desired job!

    Elizabeth is not only an outstanding coach, she will give you the best advice, preparation and coaching you need to be at your best during all your interviews. What impressed me the most was the rapidity she can see the weakness in my answers. The advice, coaching and recommendations she teaches are on target and proved invaluable as I went through the various interviews. It was a real privilege and pleasure to be coached by Elizabeth
    I just wanted to express my heartfelt appreciation to you for the work you did with me in preparing for my airline interviews were I was successful.
    Thank you again for your great work with me.

    Elizabeth was incredibly beneficial in preparing me for my interview as a pilot with British Airways. As I am now working there I can only assume it was a successful outcome! I can truly put most of the success down to her coaching, techniques and the practices I did with her - both via Skype and face-to-face. She clearly explained what I should be looking to achieve in each question I was likely to face, made me improve my interview style and was brutally honest about the items I needed to work on. She has a great deal of information about the specifics of the interviews and the video reviews of the interviews were incredibly worthwhile. If you are looking for any help with techniques for corporate interviews I cannot recommend her highly enough.

    I had a combined session with Elizabeth covering competency interviews and a presentation task, following suffering from feelings of pressure, nerves and anxiety! Elizabeth equipped me with some key things to practice, which were instrumental in turning my feelings into confidence and being in control. I think it made all the difference as having just landed a great contract role, the feedback on what clinched it vs the other final candidate was my passion and enthusiasm for their brands and business. I would definitely work with Elizabeth again, just to ensure I'm at the top of my game before the next big interview.

    I've had so many interviews this year approaching 10 but kept not getting the job. My CV was really good so getting an interview was fine, but I couldn't really sell myself. I had a meeting with Elizabeth on a Thursday before my next interview which would occur on Monday. She highlighted that I wasn't selling myself and really helped me provide really strong answers. More than anything she gave me the confidence that I needed to know I could get a job.Elizabeth showed me where I was going wrong and what I needed to do to improve. I spent the weekend working on the points she told me to concentrate on.During the interview on Monday I was able to give vary clear answers and knew now that I was actually answering the question. Leaving the interview I knew I had done my best. Well it paid of as yesterday I was told I got the job and start in a few weeks. I will definitely recommend Elizabeth's services. She knows and has a passion for what she is doing and I know she helped me get the job.

    I had two sessions with Elizabeth ahead of an interview for a senior civil service post and really benefited from her specific and constructive guidance. Elizabeth manages to be encouraging and sternly unequivocal at the same time, and tailors her advice well. Having 'homework' between sessions was very helpful in enabling much clearer preparation for the real-life situation of an interview. As well as being specifically useful interview preparation, I found the sessions very positive in promoting wider self-reflection on my own leadership style and areas for development.

    Elizabeth made very significant improvements to my interviewing, both in terms of the examples I used (and which aspects of those examples) and my interviewing technique. Throughout our sessions she was incredibly supportive and gave the type of frank advice which made the difference. She obviously has tremendous insight and expertise in the type of interview which I was preparing for - in my case, a senior civil service post - which she was able to pass on in a focussed and sensitive manner. At all times she was professional and a complete joy to work with. I cannot recommend her highly enough. I truly believe that Elizabeth made the difference in me getting the job. Thank you Elizabeth!

    Elizabeth's coaching is first class! I have always struggled with interviews over the years and she made me think and look at things in a completely different way which I would never had imagined. The coaching was designed specifically for the role I was applying for, looking at all potential questions that could have been asked, allowing me to prepare for anything that was thrown at me. The coaching made all the difference giving me the edge I've been looking for and successfully securing a position with a major company in my chosen profession.

    Our daughter, Joanna, has university interviews coming up and she so dearly wanted to be offered a place at one particular university where the course is always significantly oversubscribed. It was a daunting prospect which was not made any easier because the first interview was at the university she wanted to go to. Quite understandably Joanna was very nervous. Our daughter had a Skype session with Elizabeth and soon afterwards they had a face-to-face session, both of which Elizabeth has thoroughly prepared for beforehand. She had carefully looked into the questions that might come up for the degree Joanna wishes to study for. After the 2 sessions Joanna was far more confident and much better prepared. Joanna attended the interview and afterwards her one word answer to how it went was “good!” We understood she might have to wait 1-2 weeks before the university contacted Joanna. We did not have to wait long – the university offered a place the day after the interview! So well done Joanna and thank you so much Elizabeth for your help. We strongly recommend Elizabeth to anyone else who would is considering coaching for university interviews.

    Elizabeth's training was exceptional. I had 2 interview skills sessions, the first revolving around preparation and how to structure my answers, and the second session built on these in a mock interview style session. The biggest difference for me after talking with Elizabeth is my confidence, the sessions themselves were adapted to meet my needs and to tackle the problems I was having in interviews, giving me more confidence in how I answered. 1 month on, I have a job offer with a small accountancy firm just outside of London. I couldn't recommend Elizabeth enough and would urge anyone to get into contact.

    Back in December 2015 I had been invited to an assessment centre for the final stage of the application process for a sponsored degree apprenticeship with CapGemini. I was feeling very unprepared, but managed to book a last minute Skype session with Elizabeth and despite her busy calendar, she went out of her way accommodate a session with me. Due to extenuating circumstances, I didn't get the apprenticeship with CapGemini, so I decided to take a full year out and go travelling.

    On my return to the UK, I was invited to an interview for another sponsored degree apprenticeship with Vodafone. I applied everything Elizabeth taught me when preparing for it, meaning I went into it a million times more confident than I would have done without the sessions. It went perfectly, and I was offered a place a few days later, and I'm now 4 months into the scheme.

    Although there was a gap between my sessions with Elizabeth and my interview with Vodafone, I am certain that I wouldn't have secured a place had I not undertaken her training. The sessions are adapted to suit you, thanks to her thorough preparation, meaning they are guaranteed to improve your interview technique. Not only that, everything I learnt was transferrable, meaning I have been able to apply them to the workplace, allowing me to progress in my role.

    Elizabeth provided me with very helpful and comprehensive guidance for preparing what must have been a rather unusual scenario for her: an interview for a job with the German government, held in German. Her guidance focussed on what to say/what answers and topics to prepare, how to practice answers and body language and how to manage nervousness. I'm delighted to say I got the job -- many thanks Elizabeth!

    I always found Interviews a daunting prospect and when I received an invitation to one for a most desirable possition, I realised I needed help to achieve the desired outcome.
    Elizabeth was recommended to me by a friend going through the same experience and I decided to get in touch.
    I am really pleased that I did. Elizabeth offered great insight into the process and what the employer would expected from my interview answers and perhaps most importantly into my weaknesses, with effective advice on how to address and correct them. The interview result was a positive one and I know I could not have done it without her guidance.
    Her expertise and personal approach is excellent, and the option of using Skype for training sessions is a very helpful tool. I would have no hesitation in recommending Elizabeth and calling on her help and advice again myself, for future such events.

    We would highly recommend Elizabeth to anybody who is in the slightest lacking in self confidence and lacking experience when faced with the daunting prospect of a university interview.
    Our daughter Natasha had only just over a week to prepare for three interviews for a place on a Veterinary Medicine course at Nottingham, RVC and Liverpool universities.
    Having very little idea of the nature and content of these interviews (in some cases Multiple Mini Interview format) we sought the urgent help of Elizabeth.
    In just three sessions, two face to face and one via Skype, she primed Natasha on what to expect and how to approach these interviews. Elizabeth covered every angle possible with regard to interview techniques. She focused on Natasha's weaknesses and helped develop her strength further.
    As a result Natasha's confidence levels soared. She attended her interviews with a real sense of positivity and afterwards felt quietly confident that she had performed well. She has since been offered a place at both Nottingham and Liverpool universities and is still expecting a decision from the RVC.
    Elizabeth's role in Natasha's successful interviews has been, without doubt, invaluable. She could not have done it without her.
    Once again we would highly recommend Elizabeth's expertise and insight to anyone applying to highly competitive courses such as Veterinary Medicine.

    Dear Elizabeth,

    Thank you very much for the interview skills course. After just one two hour session you were able to help me identify my interview technique faults, and the tips you gave me helped me enhance my preparation for and performance at interviews. Less than three weeks after our session I was offered three interesting civil service senior managerial posts overseas. I would not have done it without the honest feedback and advice I got from you. I am likely to come back to you in preparation for future interviews/promotion boards etc...All the best. Kebur

    Elizabeth provided excellent feedback and advice on how to present competency examples, and helped me prepare for Civil Service interviews. Not only was I offered my dream job, but the civil service's feedback on the application proccess noted my interview technique as a great strength.

    After struggling with interview nerves for over 6 months Elizabeth's coaching helped me gain the mental clarity to approach interviews with confidence. Her feedback on my interview style, support with behavioural-based questions and guidance on what interviewers were looking for based on her own knowledge of my company and sector was invaluable.

    I highly recommend Elizabeth Conley. Elizabeth's advice, guidance & feedback has helped me greatly. I was made redundant in September last year, following this I struggled to tackle the interview selection process effectively, and so after a few rejections needed to do something about it! I saw a few similar types of interview skills services online but decided to use Elizabeth mainly based on the website and her virtually immediate response once I'd explained my situation in an e-mail. We met F2F in London, where she really helped me by understanding where I was going wrong both in terms of verbally and body language. Getting an understanding of how the interview process really works in 2017 was massively important and something that Elizabeth's expertise really stands out! After one session I managed to get offered a position working for a growing financial company, which is the role i'd been looking for, after a 3 stage selection process; that I'm now due to start soon. In addition to this I was offered another role, after a 3 stage interview process, which I'm awaiting the outcome of at time of writing. Elizabeth stayed in touch even after our session by e-mail to ask how I was getting on, providing great encouragement and so I was so pleased to tell her about my success. Her help and support was key gave my confidence a real boost and I will be using her again. I would advise anyone who is in a similar position, or who need wants to enhance their existing technique, to get in touch with her as she has great knowledge, understanding and provides the client with with tools to deliver a winning interview.

    I totally recommend Elizabeth. She helped me improve my interview skills, gave me great tips and even helped me improve my confidence. I received a job offer 2 weeks after our last session! Thank you Elizabeth!

    I failed several interviews before I received advice from Elizabeth. She pointed out what the interviewers are looking for and gave me thorough advice during two sessions. At last I was offered a dream job I applied for. I totally recommend this coaching clinic. It is easy to make an appointment and she is flexible to adjust her time. Many thanks to Elizabeth for making my dream come true.

    New to the UK, I realised that the interview marking system is quite different to what I was used to. I decided to be coached by Elizabeth because she has a background in my field (communications). Her interview questions for me were relevant! She also predicted some questions that were going to be asked in my interview, and even though I didn't get that job, I learnt a lot. I used the same skills and kept on practising until the right company hired me.

    I decided to book 2 consultations with Elizabeth as I was really struggling with interviews and especially the format, namely the competency based interviews.
    Elizabeth has an extensive knowledge in coaching, of various industries and roles, a lot of patience and did give me some invaluable advice and tips which helped tremendously, and after initially one failed interview, I managed to land a new role! I would highly recommend Elizabeth for coaching as her method is spot on and with practice, as Elizabeth will never say enough, you will get there. You will remember what to do right in terms of preparation ( and I don't mean looking up a company's website) and how to conduct yourself at an interview.
    In other words, Elizabeth will give you your confidence back and guide you to success!

    Thanks very much, Elizabeth. The coaching sessions are very helpful. Only 2 month I got a job offer. I would highly recommend Elizabeth's coaching session, her advice is very helpful for the candidates who failed interviews or graduated student who first time looking for a job. She pointed out my problems for answering interview questions and was very patient to help me to improve my interview skills.

    I have always been incredibly nervous at interviews and this has impacted on my performance. After a particularly disastrous experience, I decided to seek some professional help.

    It's always hard to choose someone without a recommendation but as soon as I contacted Elizabeth I knew that she was right for me. I started off with a Skype session to help me improve my Civil Service competency based applications. Elizabeth is tremendously knowledgeable and packed the session with sound advice, all recorded to play back later. She has great insight and helped me understand my weaknesses and the areas to improve on my applications.

    Some time later, I followed up the initial session with a face to face appointment before an important interview. I'd had a couple of recent interviews and was still with struggling nerves. I was a wreck when I saw Elizabeth as even the thought of practising in front of her filled me with dread but she wasn't fazed by this and explained it was just interview anxiety. She had some excellent strategies to help me cope and patiently coached me through my interview examples. Elizabeth highlighted my strengths and constructively pointed out areas that required further work, with suggestions on what was required. The session really boosted my confidence and helped me focus on selling myself at interview. It worked - I got the job! I cannot recommend Elizabeth highly enough. I always admire people who excel at their job and Elizabeth excels! Thank you so much.

    What can I say about Elizabeth that has not already been said? I saw Elizabeth less than a week before my Civil Service interview, (SEO post). In just 2 sessions, she coached me to sail through the interview and have received a provisional offer. Bearing in mind I have been unemployed for over a year and in that time I had attended numerous interviews - all unsuccessful.
    This is all about self-investment. Invest a little bit of your time and money with Elizabeth and the rewards will follow.
    Thanks again Elizabeth. Could not have done it without you!

    Thanks to Elizabeth, I better understand the mystery that is Civil Service assessment! (And I have a new job!)

    Elizabeth listens well to understand people's strengthens and weaknesses, and gives excellent advice about how these relate to Civil Service competencies. She also has wider experience that she uses to advise on the current changes to Civil Service recruitment, e.g. strength-bases questions.

    Applying Elizabeth's advice to my written applications boosted by marks by 1-2 points across the board; and applying her advice in interviews helped me to get two job offers!

    Elizabeth was instrumental in myself preparing and passing my interview. She is professional and quickly got me to focus on what I needed to learn and prepare for as my interview was only 1 week away from seeing her.
    In 3 days after practicing I had learnt everything I needed and was confident I was ready for my interview.
    If you want to have a edge in a job interview and need someone to to prepare you properly and inspire you I strongly recommend you give this lady a visit I did and have never looked back.

    I came across Elizabeth via a google search after I had been struggling for over 3 years with interviews. I read on her website that she specialised in coaching Civil Servants to be successful at making the next grade. I had an initial consultation with Elizabeth giving her an outline as to what I was looking for and she told me about herself and how she can help. She then told me her prices which initially I thought was a bit steep but based on her past experience I thought I'll try it and if it doesn't work out I'll go elsewhere. So we had a few coaching sessions together whereby Elizabeth would give me mock interview practice and gave me the building blocks of how I can approach interviews I had in the future. We didn't really change my stories but the way I told them. Within a few sessions I had an interview and I'm pleased that after using Elizabeth I was successful at securing a position at the next grade up to where I am now. I was pleasantly surprised because I had over 20 interviews and before coaching with Elizabeth I wasn't really getting anywhere. I had tried other coaches and other methods but nothing seemed to work. Elizabeth is more expensive than other coaches but it was money well spent and if you are struggling like me and you really want to invest in yourself I would definitely recommend her. I didn't have many sessions with Elizabeth and to be honest I kept thinking I will need more sessions. She gave me the re-assurance that I wouldn't need that many but until it happened I didn't quite believe it.

    I will definitely be coming back in a few years time when I next want help with interviews/applications. I can't thank Elizabeth enough in coaching me. I wouldn't go to anyone else or try other methods now.

    Elizabeth is a superb interview coach, who works hard to understand your needs and provide tailored support for each client. She successfully coached me for a senior-level policy role; and as a result of both her practical and tactical guidance, I was offered the role I was interviewed for! Elizabeth provided me with a real sense of confidence, asking tough but realistic questions to prepare me for the interview, and working closely with me to build effective competency-based answers. As a result of the session, I felt able to approach my interview with confidence, and to deliver taut, well-structured answers that did justice to my skill set and expertise. Elizabeth enabled me to overcome a lack of recent interview experience, and to consider and respond to questions in the most effective way. I wanted to commit to interview coaching as an investment in my professional future, and I would definitely consider it as value for money. I look forward to working with Elizabeth again!

    I had applied for the civil service fast stream multiple times, and had been consistently turned down at the interview stage. This time I got in touch with Elizabeth and went through a couple of sessions to make sure I was prepared. She was very knowledgeable about the civil service recruitment process, and taught me the fundamentals for performing well in the interviews. I went in to the interview feeling more confident and informed, and was able to succesfully land the job. I can't thank Elizabeth enough, and would definitely recommend her if you're a graduate looking to get into a competitive graduate scheme!

    I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Elizabeth for her interview coaching without which I would not have been able to succeed in my quest to move to a regulatory healthcare inspector role. I had completed interviews previously but failed to meet the grade. I had two sessions via Skype with Elizabeth where she conducted a mock interview using competency based questions which are common in the public sector. During these sessions, Elizabeth gave me constructive feedback as to how I could improve my answers and then made me repeat my answers using this feedback. This style of coaching really helped me to improve my interview technique and thus sell myself during the real interview. After my first session in late March, I attended an assessment centre which I duly passed. However, the vacancies were located in the North-West where I did not reside and thus I wasn't offered the inspector post. At the end of July, I was invited to another assessment centre for a hospital inspector position. Thus, a few days prior to my interview I held an interview coaching session with Elizabeth where she gave me constructive feedback and made me practice my answers where I was not selling myself strongly. As a result of this coaching session, I performed really well at my assessment centre and was recently informed that I had passed and thus was offered the position of hospital inspector which I will commence in a few week's time. I would thoroughly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who has been struggling to pass interviews. Elizabeth coaches candidates in a professional manner and provides helpful feedback upon which candidates can reflect upon and practice rewording their answers to questions during their coaching sessions. These sessions also helped to boost my self-confidence which was a real asset during the real interview.

    I struggled in interviews for over a year and after being unsuccessful in over 20 interviews, I decided to give interview coaching a go. I found Elizabeth through a Google search and decided to book her after reading her reviews and a brief phone consultation. I found Elizabeth to be incredibly helpful, she was able to highlight the challenges I was facing and provide really useful suggestions on how to make improvements. I had two sessions with Elizabeth and I am pleased to say that the second interview I went for after working with Elizabeth, I was offered a position. If you are hesitant about the fee, I understand, but it really is a good investment in yourself. I even recommended Elizabeth’s coaching to my husband and after one meeting, he got a job offer the very next interview he went for.

    I would like to thank Elizabeth for preparing me for an interview. I only had one session with her and I got out of it way more than I could expect. We focused on competency-based questions. I got a better understanding of a STAR technique and learnt how to apply it effectively. After asking each of the interview questions, Elizabeth gave me a constructive feedback and valuable tips how to improve my answers. After that, I repeated answers implementing her suggestions. We also went through the presentation that I had to deliver during the interview process and again Elizabeth suggestions were priceless! As a result of our session and following the suggestions, I had a very successful interview and was offered a position 24 hours after the interview!!!! If I have another interview in the feature, I will definitely have a coaching with Elizabeth again. I highly recommend her services to everyone who is in a job search process!
