Your Coach will ensure you hit the right mark by providing direct feedback on how to improve your online appearance and interview answers. The questions your interview skills trainer will ask are directly related to your interview or potential interview. Your Career Coach will provide key pointers that will enable you to come across both confidently and professionally online.

Some Interview Skill Training Testimonials:

“Last Friday morning I had my second interview along with the presentation.

Was grilled by the CEO and felt I hadn’t done well at all.

Anyway got a call at lunchtime and they offered me the job. Honestly couldn’t believe it.

Decision time now. Again I would like to say thanks for your help. It was fantastic and something I’ll carry with me no matter what road I decide to go. Thanks again.



“Thanks for all your help.

I’m just out of the interview. I got a bit nervous at the start but I calmed down after the initial question. Have no idea why I got nervous as they were lovely… All questions I prepared with you over the week came up except one…

Thanks for all your help. You have been very helpful to me and I’ll be recommending you to others.

Kind Regards,


“I got a call this morning saying that they wanted to grab me up before I got offered anything else. I am so happy. I am off to Dublin to do my dream job. Patricia, I can’t thank you enough for your input. You are so very insightful and it’s as if you gave me the formula! You are excellent at your job and I hope you go from strength to strength with your coaching business.”

“Just letting you know that I was offered a position in the xxx! I thought I was seeing things when I received the letter! I’m in shock!

I felt confident in the interview and answered all the questions asked. … I will be replying to them today to accept! Thank you so much for all your kind words and help and also for helping me get my confidence back!



“I had an interview for a health sector role that was a dream job for me. I found Patricia’s advice, preparation and guidance invaluable – she taught me how to think differently and avoid the obvious interview tactics, and she passed on excellent techniques and skills to me. She is also extremely personable and empathetic, as well as being so professional. I’m delighted to say: I was successful in my application, as well as coming joint first out of all the applicants! I would highly recommend, without hesitation, Patricia’s professional service to job-seekers.”
