FREE Webinar – 5 Unforgivable Interview Mistakes

Many candidates fail to prepare for an interview in the right way.  In a competency or behaviour based interview this results in a low score assessment – another candidate will appear more qualified and be offered the job!  Being under-prepared can result in ‘brain-freeze’ during the interview or not providing full responses to the questions to promote the skills you have.  Every interview you fail chips away at your confidence and then this in turns starts to show in your body language.

Skype or face-to-face interview training is really effective for all interview scenarios.  For example, initial screening telephone or Skype interviews are becoming increasingly popular with recruiters and your technique can be perfected with the right training.

All formats of formal interviews can be fully prepared for in a safe training environment so you will be your best on the day.

Face-to-face training can be held at my office in Essex or offices in Central London.

Skype training is very convenient and can take place from anywhere in the UK or overseas, eliminating travelling costs.

The My Career Builder programme has provided excellent results for all levels in a variety of professions. 

Here are some of my clients’ comments:

“More useful than reading a book.”

“The practical approach in the Career Builder Mastery Programme made me to think more laterally about what could potentially come up in an interview. This programme was more useful than reading a book about interview practice because of the training I got in the mock interviews”

“The job of my dreams!”

“Working with you David on the Executive programme was crucial to me getting the job of my dreams!  I cannot thank you enough.  You really did prepare me well for the two stage interview process.  I received feedback after that the panel thought I was perfect!  I look forward to working with you on my coaching programme to develop my management skills.”

Dee

“Money well spent.”

“I have recommended David and the My Career Builder Programme to friends who are job seeking as he helped me enormously. Money well spent.”

Tom

Essex, UK

“I lacked confidence…”

“David really helped me to understand what jobs best suited me. He was very understanding, helpful and easy to talk to. I undertook the discovery and foundation programmes which were very easy to follow along with the Building My Career booklet. I lacked confidence in the face of interviews, therefore David and I had mock interviews which put me at ease. I would highly recommend David as he helped me to get on my feet…”

Eleanor

“I got the job!”

“Hey David, just to let you know I got the job!  Thank you for your help!”
