Job interview training to take the worry out of the process
Do you ever wonder if there is some secret trick to nailing an interview that no-one ever told you about? Or perhaps there is a set of rules to follow and you missed the memo? Before we answer this, ask yourself – have you ever wondered at least one of the following?
“I thought I nailed it. Why didn’t I get the job?”
“Why do I never hear back after applying?”
“Is there something wrong with me?”
“Did I overshare or not share enough?”
“They seemed to like me – maybe it was personal.”
“I’m not sure how to respond to some of the questions.”
“Should I actually tell them about a weakness, or is it a trick question?”

Job interview coaching and training in Sydney
If you have ever asked yourself at least one of these, you’re in the right place. We understand the hiring process can be completely overwhelming, especially if it’s for a job you’re really interested in or in an industry you could navigate blindfolded. You feel as though it’s hit and miss every time – even when the job is right up your alley – and have no idea why. Was it something you said? Was it what you wore? Or was it simply that the hiring manager found someone else with more experience? You wonder how everyone is landing jobs except you, and you start to wonder if any of it is meant to be.
What if we told you this – they can be. And with a few tweaks to your pitch, you can change your whole game.
Picture this scenario:
You find your dream job advertised online.
You spend time carefully updating your resume to apply for the role.
You get to the selection criteria and answer it meticulously – after all, you know about the STAR method.
You send the application off and get a call a few days later to come in.
You research the organisation, dress professionally, and arrive 10 minutes early.
You’re polite to the person checking you in, and shake hands with everyone you’re introduced to.
You sit down, they ask you to “tell me about yourself” … and you choke.
With so many things to remember, we know it may feel impossible to truly know how to perform confidently under fire. But that’s where we come in. We understand that if you really want to stand out in Sydney’s current job market and competitive applicants – and gain lifelong skills in the process – investing in some preparation and coaching is a simple and effective solution.
So what’s the secret to nailing interview preparation?
To be honest – there is no secret. Instead, hard work, thoroughness and persistence are key.
We can help to teach you the important things to remember when planning, attending and following up on an application so you’ll never have to ask yourself those headache-inducing questions again.
Check out our tutorial on interview skills, which provides you with insider information around how to prepare, what key steps to take as you practice, and how to nail your in-office performance.
