"I found the practice interviews and advice which you gave immensely helpful; I really would have had no idea how to answer the questions otherwise.
H.C. October 2013
"To say I found the graduate recruitment process daunting is an understatement. Even the idea of calling Barrie for an initial discussion made me nervous. I shouldn’t have worried however, as Barrie has a wonderful way of making you feel at ease, help identify your strengths and enable you to articulate these in the best possible way."

Coaching for Success

Do you want a graduate job, internship or placement with a top company?

Are you:

  • Struggling to answer questions on your online application?
  • Worrying about how to handle a telephone interview?
  • Failing to get through a competency based interview?
  • Being rejected at assessment centre?

Interview coaching is an enormous help in landing a good graduate job. If you’re studying at, or you have recently graduated from, a top British University, then we would love to help you, so please read on…

What Our Coaching Will Do For You

We will coach and support you through the entire selection process, including:

  • Completing the on-line application form – just 10% to 20% reach the next stage
  • Succeeding at Telephone Interview – we show you how
  • Winning at the Competency Based Interview – giving you skills & confidence
  • Preparing for Assessment Centre – What you must do and what you mustn’t do

You will learn what employers are looking for, and how to present yourself so that you show yourself to best advantage and win through at each stage of the process – vital skills of lasting value during your future career.

“Many of today’s students are used to being heavily directed on what is needed for exam success or college applications but they lack help in the final straight, when they have to put all these qualifications to use” Robert Shrimley – Financial Times

If you’re not sure what sort of job would be right for you, we also offer career counselling as an additional service that can be enormously helpful in guiding you towards an enjoyable and successful career.

All our coaching includes an initial FREE, no-obligation phone conversation to establish your own particular needs. Our personal coaching is just that – personal – and we tailor it to suit your individual requirements.

Your personal coaching will be delivered in “bite size chunks” via telephone, e-mail and, if appropriate, by Skype/webcam – it’s a proven method that’s very convenient. It helps us to keep costs down for you and it doesn’t matter where you live.

Why is coaching necessary?

If you’re applying for internships or your first graduate job, you will be up against strong competition. To win the job you really want, you have to know what the employer is looking for and how to demonstrate your potential – most people don’t know how to do this and even excellent candidates often fall at the first hurdle.

A little personal coaching from people who sit the other side of the desk, people who conduct competency interviews and design recruitment and selection processes, really does help you to perform better – and it doesn’t cost the earth.

These days it’s tougher than ever to win through the recruitment process and get a good graduate job with a good employer. Because the top companies often receive up to 15,000 applications a year they have not got the time to interview everyone. That’s why, increasingly, the best graduate employers use a recruitment process that has been described by Dr Paul Raymond, the head of careers and employability at the University of Liverpool, as “weapons of mass rejection.”

Why Choose Us For Your Personal Coaching?

So what do we know about it? Well, we’ve interviewed thousands of people from new graduates to hard-core Chief Execs running £100,000,000 companies, and from our experience everyone needs someone to help them get the job they want.

We prepare you for what you can expect to meet at the top end of the graduate job market, and our experience enables us to tailor our coaching to your particular needs and situation.

In recent months we have successfully helped clients obtain positions in Investment Banking, Management Consulting, ‘Big Four’ Accounting and Regulatory Bodies.

How Much Does Personal Coaching Cost?

Research shows that personal coaching can really make a significant difference to your confidence and your success. Getting the job you want can literally enable you to change your life.

The problem is that some firms will charge the equivalent to a few weeks of your first year’s salary just for interview coaching. They also charge an undergraduate an additional fee of £150.00 for ‘perfecting’ a CV and a further £130.00 for preparing a cover letter. Total costs can be £2,500.00 plus. We think that for most people these costs are prohibitive.

We believe that top quality coaching should be available to a wide audience and not only to an elite few. This is why we offer our full package, which will support you through the entire selection process, for only £400.00.

The full package includes hours of professional coaching and support as required throughout the entire recruitment process. We think you’ll agree that £400 is extremely good value for such a comprehensive service. We charge this very low price because we love working with young people.

We understand that not everyone will need or want the full package so feel free to call and discuss your requirements.

How Does the Coaching Process Work?

Before you decide on any coaching, we will have an initial FREE, no-obligation phone conversation to discuss your situation and establish your own particular needs. If you decide after this that coaching isn’t for you, there will be nothing to pay and no pressure at all to proceed.

Your personal coaching will be delivered in “bite size chunks” via telephone, e-mail and, if appropriate, by Skype/webcam so no travel is involved, saving you time and costs.

We are passionate about customer service: we devote a lot of time to each client, and as a result we are only able to accept a maximum of four clients at the same time. Contact us now and find out how we can help you!

You can’t rely on a good degree, good luck and destiny to advance your career (no matter how talented and intelligent you are) especially not in the current economic climate. You have to convince your prospective employer that you would be a valuable asset to them. Through our personal coaching we show you how.

We give you the skills to manage your future. Talk to us now – give yourself the best chance that you can to be a success!
