Would really recommend interview skills clinic. They really personalise the help to what you want and the jobs you are looking for. Chista in particular was very helpful and showed a real interest in helping me to be successful.

I would thoroughly recommend Interview Skills Clinic. Their approach to improving responses; via an initial discussion and preparation pack, followed by a tailored interview was superb. Chista helped me structure responses more effectively and improve my communication. All of which has led to an offer. Thanks very much Chista!

I cannot recommend Elizabeth enough! Before we met, I had awful interview anxiety and low self esteem, however, within only one session this had all changed significantly. Elizabeth is approachable, down to earth, gets to the point, and genuinely cares about her clients- both in and out of sessions. She has really made a difference in not only how I answer interview questions but my general approach and mindset towards them. I must say that this is the best money I have ever spent.

Matthew provided excellent coaching for my interview with the civil service.

Matthew and Elizabeth were both fantastic in helping me with a recent job application and interview preparation for a civil service role. Matthew is expert at what he does and provided invaluable advice on what to include in my personal statement. Over two Skype sessions he helped me identify and highlight the skills and experience relevant to the role I was seeking and advised me on preparing my application. He is very knowledgable and clearly has a wealth of experience which he shares as he provides constructive feedback. I learnt a lot from Matthew and this undoubtedly helped me secure an interview for a role I really wanted. I struggle with interview anxiety and have now worked with Elizabeth on two occasions to help me prepare for important interviews. Elizabeth is patient and understanding and she really ‘gets’ how it is for nervous candidates, quickly putting me at ease. On this most recent occasion she helped me understand again what to get across during an interview and suggested strategies to help me deal with the anxiety which really did work. I am pleased to say I was offered the promotion in to a role I’m really excited about and I am indebted to both Elizabeth and Matthew for their help and support.

Elizabeth is great! The most important thing I learned from Elizabeth was the importance and effectiveness of tailoring your pitch to the role you're going for. She supported me in a public sector opportunity which required a very different approach from the one I was taking. She was no-nonsense, down to earth and helped focus on difficult answers and practice to get the result I wanted. With this practice in the bank, I did well on the interview and was able to secure a great job as a result. If you're unsure or need a bit of focus on interview technique, I'd recommend her completely.

Matthew's help was invaluable in preparing me for a job interview in a senior role. As I had no previous experience of being interviewed for a position at this level, I was feeling anxious about the whole process and not at all confident as I had very little time to prepare. Matthew was brilliant from the outset and very professional. We emailed and spoke over the phone prior to the session so he knew about me and why I needed some assistance, the details of the job I had applied for and also my work history. He reassurred me that he would be able to help and could see me at short notice. Matthew has a wonderfully warm manner which puts you at ease straight away and is extremely knowledgable, he went through my C.V. in detail and really understands your skill set regardless of which area or industry you work in. He had prepared a variety of question areas specifically for the type of role I had applied for which helped me frame my skills and experience in the right way. I left the session just feeling much more positive, a couple of days later the interview went and I was so happy to be offered the job. I can highly recommend Matthew to anyone seeking to improve their interview skills, I received really good feedback from the interview, the difference after just one session was amazing! Thank you Matthew for helping me achieve my goals, I will definitely be booking another appointment in the future.

Thanks to Chista for coaching me for video and face-to-face interviews for my first job after graduating - I was offered a role after my second job interview, so I was really pleased. After my coaching sessions, I felt much more confident and less anxious about the interviews, and getting a job so quickly was a big relief. Chista kept in touch with me throughout my interviews, was really supportive and was happy to talk through anything, I really appreciated her going the extra mile to help.

I was looking for a promotion after being in the same post for over 10 years, but despite having the necessary skills and experience, I wasn’t getting any response to my applications. A friend recommended Interview Skills Clinic, and after Chista helped with my CV and application writing, I started getting offers for interview. She then supported me through the interview process, and her coaching session and mock interviews really boosted my confidence and prepared me for dealing with all types of questions. The interview for the job I wanted was tough but I was successful and got very positive feedback afterwards – thanks Chista, and I’ve already recommended you to some of my friends!

Matthew began working with me at the start of June 2019 after graduating from University having applyed for many roles and never getting further than the first stage. As a result of his help, he gave me the skills, knowledge and confidence to apply for roles with a strong application. I was able to secure a job within a few months of working with Matthew. He was actively involved in my applications and the different stages of application. Overall very personable and enjoyable to work with. Importantly, Matthew explained to me the process of how employers decide to take candidates forward to an interview and what influences are important for the final appointment, something I found extremely useful when reading feedback from unsuccessful applications as I was able to understand the overall process better. Matthew is a friendly person who is enthusiastic about working with people and learning more about areas of work/interest beyond just reading cover letters or CVs. He actively helped with job searches and is invested in your success. This ongoing engagement with my interests/applications in politics and marketing in Scotland was a unique quality that I struggled to find with other advisors before. Overall he was very prepared and professional and was really enjoyable to work with and will be of great help to anyone struggling and demotivated by the job hunt process.
