Our Full Interview Skills Programme

Our Interview Skills programme is split over two sessions. In the first session, we interview you for the job in question or one similar to it using the person description and job description that you will have with you or if that is unavailable, we will supply a person and job description.


  • We score you on an evaluation chart that we use to select candidates for companies.
  • We note your strengths and weaknesses.
  • We give you immediate feedback on how you have done.

Post-Session Feedback and Practice

After the session, we outline how you can improve under 9 separate headings and answer any queries you have. We provide you with comprehensive notes and you practice at home based on our notes and advice.


  • These 9 headings are based on the criteria we use to select candidates for companies.
  • We advise you about the best way to practice to ensure a significant improvement.
  • If you have any queries, we are always available to help you.
Session 2 – Perfecting What You Learnt

At the end of that practice period, you return for the same interview and based on our advice and notes, we are confident that your second performance will have improved significantly.

  • We will advise you on areas that you can improve.
  • By this stage, you should be equipped with the skills to outperform your competitors.
  • We are always available if you have any queries prior to your interview.

Emergency Interview Skills Programme

This programme is for you if you are in a drastic hurry; there is an interview coming up within days and you do not have the time for the full programme. In it we combine the two sessions of the full programme into one session. In the first part, we interview you for the job in question or one similar to it using the job description and person specification that you will have with you, or if not available, ones that we will supply.

  • We score you up on an interview evaluation chart that we use to select candidates for companies and give you immediate feedback on how you have done, noting your strengths and your shortcomings.
  • We then revisit your weakest answers and work on those. We point out to you what you should be saying and how to say it.
  • We discuss any queries that you might have; give you a comprehensive set of notes to remind you how and what to practice and then send you on your way to practice at home for the real thing.
