Interview Preparation

Affordable – Effective

Do you wish you could have done better in job competitions?

Are there ways to increase your chances of passing the first candidate screening level?

Can you improve your performance in exams and interviews and act with comfort and confidence?

The answer is a resounding YES.

We provide coaching services to prepare people for job competitions primarily in federal government departments and agencies. We do not guarantee you will win every competition but we can work with you to present your knowledge, skills and experience in ways that increase your chances of being seen as a highly credible candidate.

Through one-on-one coaching and information from previous competitive processes, we support you in exploring how to prepare:

  • Applications that clearly respond to requirements and increase your chances of being considered for the next phase of a competitive process;
  • For written exams;
  • For formal and informal interviews including:
  • Identifying knowledge requirements and integrating them into a compelling vision;
  • Telling insightful career stories to powerfully demonstrate your experience;
  • Developing your brand;
  • Taking a structured approach to answering questions;
  • Maintaining composure and thinking clearly under pressure.
  • An approach to selecting and preparing references who will provide a balanced picture of your competencies.

Preparation can make the difference between coming first and second, between being a solid candidate and “bombing” the interview. Coaching alone will not help you succeed. Nor will attempting to memorize dozens of documents without a structured way of synthesizing and communicating what you know. But if you are willing to do the work to prepare and practice, our coaching will increase your chances of success.

Our coaching will not give you the answers to exam and interview questions…only you can do that. What our coaching will do is give you the tools to improve your job competition skills now and for the rest of your career.
