Interview Coaching

Build confidence in interview and improve your chance of landing your dream job


Are your nerves stopping you from getting that job? Perhaps you are getting the interview but not getting over the line or maybe you just want to really elevate your performance?

I can help you make a lasting impression with employers that will convert into job offers.

Over the last 12 years, I have strived to get my clients to a place where they feel prepared, enjoy the interview process, and get the jobs they want. Even those who were not successful left the interview process feeling they had done their best, and going forward, they were confident in their ability to interview well.

Preparing for interview? I will show you how to prepare effectively, answer challenging questions and build a strong example bank.

If the thoughts of interviewing makes your heart race or you struggle to focus your thoughts and words in interview, I can show you how to overcome that and how to feel calm, relaxed and confident.

I have experience coaching for interview in both the private and public sectors at all levels.

I use my past experiences as a recruiter and my background in Psychology, emotional intelligence, mind coaching and solution focused Hypnotherapy to help you gain an understanding of what employers look for an interview, access confidence and how to use that to differentiate yourself as a candidate.

You might even enjoy interviewing when we are finished together!

Rachel Gallery - CRM Campaign Manager

“I would highly recommend Carmel as a career coach. After completing four sessions with her, I got an interview within a week and was offered the job.

Carmel’s coaching combines practical tips with mentoring techniques. She helped me identify what type of work would suit my personality. This helped build my confidence to the point that I walked into my interview feeling sure I was the right candidate.

I enjoyed working with Carmel - she is very likeable and always put me at ease. Her coaching made a difference to my career prospects and, incidentally, my attitude to life outside work.”
