Why Interview Practice With A Professional Is The Best Way To Prepare For A New Career

For many job-hunters, there's nothing more nerve-wracking than an interview. Being fully prepared is the key to feeling confident and showing you're a viable candidate for the role. One-to-one interview practice with a professional is the best way to prepare - here's why.

You'll need to do some prep work first
There are things you can do to prepare for your interview - and even before your practice interview. Firstly, ensure you know how the interview process works or you'll get an unpleasant surprise on the day!

Research the company - their background, ethos, services and/or products - so you're better prepared with more specific answers to the interviewer's questions. This will give you the edge over other interviewees and really showcase your suitability for the job role.

Make a list of your strengths (and weaknesses). This will not only better prepare you for the questions in the interview, but will also boost your self-confidence in your abilities - an attitude that will impress the interviewer.


A professional interview coach is impartial and knowledgeable

Interview coaching may sound just as daunting as the real interview! But it's a vital tool that can help unlock your confidence and teach you the art of being a model interviewee.

Of course, you could practice at home in front of the mirror, or even record yourself answering a list of questions to check how confident you look and sound.

You could even enlist a friend's help. But these methods won't give you an impartial view of your interview technique. A one-to-one mock interview with a professional coach like me will set you up for success!
