Our Basic Job Interview Preparation Package, using the telephone, Skype or Google Video Chat, is a very convenient way to prepare for a job interview.

Basic Job Interview Preparation Package

Our Basic Job Interview Preparation Package is designed to help a typical job applicant prepare for a typical interview. Our job interview coaches will advise you on how to:

  • Prepare for an interview
  • Answer tough questions
  • Demonstrate that you have the skills and qualifications required for the job
  • Overcome shyness and anxiety
  • Dress appropriately for the interview
  • Address weaknesses in your application

Our recommendations will be tailored specifically for you and the job you are applying for.

We find that the average job applicant requires about 45 minutes of interview coaching in addition to his or her own preparations for the interview.

You should schedule a coaching session with one of our career coaches before your interview. You can use our online scheduling tool or input your name in the contact form so a representative of Interview SOS can contact you to schedule an appointment. Interview coaching sessions cost $80 for a 1 hour session, and usually require some independent preparation for the coach prior to the interview (reading the job description, client’s resume, etc). Additional coaching, if required, is billed at the rate of $80 per hour.

We strongly suggest that the applicant send us their resume, cover letter (if relevant) and a copy of the job description prior to the interview coaching sessions so the coach can review these documents and suggest an appropriate interviewing strategy.

It’s optional, but we suggest that the applicant come to the coaching session prepared to answer the following common interview questions:

  1. Tell me about your­self? [Hint: Give a 2–3 minute per­sonal sales pitch]
  2. Why are you leav­ing your cur­rent or pre­vi­ous job?
  3. What is your great­est strength? What are your strengths?
  4. What is your great­est weak­ness? What are your weaknesses?
  5. Why are you inter­ested in this posi­tion or company?
  6. Tell me about your great­est achievement.
  7. How do you deal with conflict?

The applicant can also bring a list of questions and concerns about the job interview process for his or her coach to answer.

After scheduling an appointment, please read our Job Interview Guide so you know the basics about how to prepare for an interview.

We offer additional job interview coaching based on your needs.

Advanced Job Interview Coaching Package

Many job applicants are in need of additional assistance in their preparations for the interview process. The typical client in this category just wants several additional hours of help in improving their job interview skills but we often provide job interview coaching to candidates with special situations including:

  • Shyness
  • Anxiety or Nervousness*
  • English as a Second Language*
  • Speech Disorders*

For these clients, we suggest 3 one hour sessions of job interview preparation. Each session is scheduled seperately. The career coach and the client will usually work out a curriculum for these sessions focusing on addressing client needs.

*Please note that the job interview coaches of Interview SOS are not health care professionals or foreign language instructors. We are sympathetic career coaches with experience helping candidates in special situations overcome difficulties and get jobs.

You should be proud of your resume.

Resume and Cover Letter Consultation

Sometimes we encounter candidates who have difficulty applying for jobs because their current resume and cover letter does not accurately reflect their skills, background, work experience, and academic credentials as relevant to the jobs they are applying for. For such clients, we offer resume and cover letter re-writing services. This typically requires 3 hours of independent writing and 1 hour of face time with the client for a total of 4 hours. We bill clients at a rate of $80 per hour for this service.

We’ll make you a resume you can be proud of.
