- Feeling nervous about your next job interview for the public sector?
- Been to several interviews and keep missing out?
- Wondering what questions you could be asked and how to answer them?
Then try Interview Coaching. For full details please read this brochure.
Individual coaching is conducted either over the phone, skype or in person (subject to a suitable venue in Canberra).
Coaching takes the form of a discussion about the process, question types, your responses and can include role playing interview responses.
Between one and two hours is usually sufficient time to cover your needs.
Coaching is effective when you have a particular job in mind. For coaching to be effective you need to:
- have thoroughly researched the job
- have identified specifically what you wish to gain from the coaching
- send the job description and your application
- send material from past interviews (e.g. questions asked, feedback received)
With this information I prepare questions for you to focus on during the coaching session.
Coaching fees vary depending on the level of the job and whether coaching takes place by phone or in person.
If you are applying for an SES position I can refer you to a coach with recent SES experience.
You can inquire about this service by phone 02 6254 5023 or by using Contact Us. Include information about the level of the job and when your interview is scheduled.
You may also find 101 Interview Questions, Winning Performance at Job Interviews, Five minute coaching - A Six Pack on Selling Yourself, useful tools for interview preparation.
What clients say about Ann's coaching:
Your book “How to Write and Talk to Selection Criteria” was given to me as a gift to help me score a dream job in the Public Service. The dream job did not eventuate straight away and years passed but I found the book to be very useful, helpful, practical, and straight forward as a reference in addressing selection criteria and for going through the process of a job application. Several friends now also have copies of this book upon my recommendation. I swear by this book for any job applications!
Having used the book for a job application, I still found Ann’s coaching very useful. She is resourceful, patient and an expert in her field. She has excellent knowledge of the recruitment process in the Public Service which I found very helpful for somebody wanting to break into the Public Service. Her coaching session proves to be useful for a sounding board and more importantly a way to discuss and explore certain interview scenarios. Ann also raised possible interview questions that I did not think of and was asked at the interview. She has a way of summarising your ‘racing thoughts’ before an interview and also conceptualises and simplify your thoughts for an interview. The Selection Panel noted that I was articulate and well prepared for the interview.
I have now landed my dream job and it is thanks to Ann’s guidance and Mental Nutrition!
