Elizabeth’s insightful questioning and industry awareness has ensured my success in securing two positions that were important to me. Elizabeth’s ability to clearly decipher what organisations are looking for from the job description/ specification is helpful and the coaching/ questioning style used is thorough yet supportive. For me this approach works in building confidence and clarity and was a significant factor in my success.. Thank you Elizabeth.
I highly recommend Elizabeth's interview skills coaching and I plan to use her again in the future. Elizabeth was pleasant and generous with her practical advice and feedback throughout my 90 minute skype coaching session. I decided to make the investment after failing numerous Civil Service Grade 7 interviews. Elizabeth understood and shared what the interviewers are looking for at that level. Thanks to Elizabeth's coaching, I passed my interview and landed a G7 job within 2 months.
Elizabeth was extremely helpful in my preparation for a graduate interview. She had an extensive knowledge on both strengths and competency based interviews and was able to effectively articulate examples to aid my own understanding of them. Additionally, she was able to quickly and effectively delve in to my own personal strengths and weaknesses in and interview environment and help me improve my technique. I highly recommend Elizabeth for anyone else who is in need of advice when it comes to interviews.
Elizabeth's insight really helped me come to understand the new civil service approach after having left for the private sector. Her advise ensured that I was able to communicate my examples in a way that maximised the scorers I achieved. This resulted in my examples being concise and allowed me to remain adaptable to respond to the additional questions that now form part of the new approach.
I looked Elizabeth up after being unsuccessful with many applications for promotion. I had attended a few interviews but found my main problem to be not hitting the mark in the competency sifts.I was becoming quite frustrated knowing I had plenty of work experiences at the required level which wasn’t leading to interviews. Elizabeth spent time going through my applications and explained where I was falling down, and what I needed to do sell myself effectively and concisely.Following some important feedback sessions, and feeling like something had finally clicked, I was invited to interview on my first application. I was able to give a confident interview using my deeper understanding of what was required by the competency framework – a first in a long time! I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone experiencing similar issues.
After 9 months of unsuccesful job hunting I made an appointment with Elizabeth. I had 2 upcoming interviews in arts related roles which she helped me prepare for. She helped build my confidence and focus on areas I needed to build on, including my ability to sell myself! To my delight I was offered both jobs which proves Elizabeth's coaching WORKS! :)
After many unsuccessful interviews with feedback that was either “you gave a good interview, but we hired someone with more practical experience”, or “we liked you, but we gave the job to someone who gave more rounded answers”, I decided to get some professional help. Elizabeth was very welcoming and immediately helped me feel at ease. We discussed in detail the posts I hoped to apply for and also my background. My main problems were not selling myself, and also not giving enough depth to my answers. We practiced a few questions that were guaranteed to come up in my interviews. Elizabeth also gave me advice on how to structure my answers and also sell my abilities and past experiences without making me uncomfortable. I was planning on meeting up with Elizabeth for another session, but attended an interview at short notice. I immediately felt more confident and in control while answering the questions, and for the first time actually enjoying the interview. I was offered the job later that same day, and like one of the other reviewers’ mentioned they told me that I was a standout candidate. I am very grateful for Elizabeth’s advice, guidance and encouragement at a time when I felt doubtful about being able to get the job I wanted.
I contacted Elizabeth for help with crippling interview nerves. I'd worked in senior positions in an international company for over 12 years, and wanted to change sector. My anxiety was so great that in my first session with Elizabeth I actually had a panic attack. Mortifying! I was quite certain that neither she - nor anyone else - would ever be able to get me past something which was a huge point of embarrassment for me. I felt quite desperate, having resigned from a successful career to allow myself space to decide on what I wanted to do next. Imagine the pressure on me when I then found myself fluffing even informal chats on the phone with potential interviewers through crippling nerves. To compound this, not a single person I knew would believe that 'someone like me' would ever have interview issues, as I'm a strong communicator. But I really, really did. Elizabeth tackled this sensitively, practically and ultimately successfully. She helped me to approach interviews in a completely different way, finding a new mind-set, and I secured the first role I applied for in my new sector a couple of months ago. This took several sessions, but were genuinely one of the best investments in my personal development that I have made. I'm eternally grateful. Thank you Elizabeth!
I had been called to my first civil service job interview in 10 years. I was applying for promotion. In my 90-minute Skype session Elizabeth showed me how to attend to all aspects of the competencies on which I would be questioned and how to provide much more detailed answers. She also helped me see the importance of being able to verbally sum up my achievements for each of my competency examples. I was successful in my application. I could not have done it without Elizabeth’s help.
Elizabeth is a brilliant coach. I used her services to prepare for my first civil service interview and again when I was seeking a position on promotion. I received offers to both posts. She's a master on civil service interviewing. I cant recommend her highly enough.
