Featured Success Story
“In a nutshell, working with Job Interviewology has been life-changing. Let’s me explain…
Following an exceptionally bad interview experience (wherein I was left to feel mocked and incapable by the interviewers), I had a very anxious mindset when it came to progressing my career. Terrified of the thought of having to go through more brutal interviews. That all changed when I stumbled across Job Interviewology. What started as a friendly introductory chat over the phone spurred me on: I wanted to change this toxic, unconfident mindset which had been holding me back for far too long. After a 1-1 coaching session, I had a eureka moment: it didn’t matter how talented or experienced I was if I couldn’t convince others of this skillset. From that moment on, I became a different person in the context of my career: I became exceptionally confident and bold!
Fast forward to the present day and, after two brilliant interviews, I’ve been offered both jobs – and have ended up landing my dream job working for a huge industry leading company. Trust me when I say that you won’t regret investing in Job Interviewology: it has literally changed my life.”

JOB INTERVIEW COACHING FAQ
WHAT DOES A JOB INTERVIEW COACH DO?
A job interview coach is a professional who helps individuals prepare for job interviews by providing advice and guidance on how to present themselves effectively and answer questions in a way that showcases their skills and qualifications. The primary responsibilities of a job interview coach may vary, but generally, they help clients develop and practise their interview skills, including
- Answering common interview questions
- Asking questions of the interviewer
- Talking about their skills and experience
- Discussing their strengths and weaknesses
- Handling difficult or unexpected questions
A job interview coach may also provide advice on how to prepare for an interview, such as reviewing the job posting and researching the company. As well as tips on how to dress and behave during the interview. They may also help clients practise their body language, the tone of voice and provide feedback on how to improve their overall presentation.
HOW DO YOU COACH INTERVIEW QUESTIONS?
There are a few key steps in effectively coaching someone on interview questions:
- Understand the job and the company: It’s important to have a clear understanding of the job and the company the person is interviewing with. This will help you tailor your coaching to the specific requirements and culture of the organisation.
- Review common interview questions: Familiarise yourself with common interview questions, such as those related to the person’s experience, skills, and fit for the role.
- Practice with the person: Have the person practise answering the questions out loud, and provide feedback on their delivery, including their body language and tone of voice.
- Offer guidance on how to answer: Help the person understand how to structure their responses, including how to highlight their strengths and qualifications in a way that is relevant to the job and the company.
- Role play: Consider role-playing the interview with the person, so they can practise answering questions and receiving feedback in a simulated interview setting.
- Offer encouragement and support: Finally, a coach will be supportive, encouraging and remind the person that they have the skills and experience to do well in the interview.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INTERVIEW COACHING AND CAREER COACHING
Interview coaching and career coaching are both types of professional coaching that can help individuals achieve their career goals. However, they focus on different aspects of the career development process.
Interview training is focused on preparing for specific job interviews, while career coaching is focused on helping individuals achieve their long-term career goals.
HOW SHOULD I PREPARE PRIOR TO AN INTERVIEW SESSION?
Your Interview Trainer will contact you prior to the 1 2 1 interview coaching class with either a call or an email stating the things that you should do. If you’ve enrolled in our interview preparation program then you would be expected to complete our online interview training course first called ‘Get Hired’. There are several steps you can take to prepare for an interview:
- Research the company
- Review the job posting
- Practice answering common interview questions
- Prepare questions to ask the interviewer
- Dress appropriately and be punctual
By following these steps, you can feel more prepared and confident going into the interview.
HOW MUCH DO JOB INTERVIEW COACHES CHARGE?
Job interview coaches typically charge by the hour for their services. The cost can vary widely, depending on factors such as the coach’s level of experience, the location of the coaching, and the specific type of coaching being provided. Some coaches may charge as little as £50 per hour, while others may charge £100 or more per hour. Some coaches may also offer packages of multiple sessions at a discounted rate.
It’s worth noting that the cost of hiring a job interview coach is an investment in your career and can be well worth it if it helps you land a job that you are well-suited for and that you will enjoy. However, it’s important to do your research and find a coach who is reputable and has a track record of helping clients succeed in job interviews.
HOW DO I FIND AN INTERVIEW COACH?

HOW IS JOB INTERVIEW COACHING CONDUCTED?
Job interview coaching is typically conducted one-on-one with a trained coach or in a small group setting. It can be conducted in person, over the phone, or via video conferencing.
During a coaching session, the coach will typically ask the job seeker about their job search goals, their strengths, weaknesses and their past job experiences. The coach will also ask the job seeker what types of jobs they are applying for and the company they are applying to. So they can better understand the job requirements and the company culture.
Next, the coach will work with the job seeker to develop strategies for success in the job interview. This may include practising common interview questions, role-playing mock interviews giving feedback on the job seeker’s communication style and body language. The coach may also provide guidance on resume and cover letter writing, networking, and other job search skills.
Overall, the goal of job interview coaching is to help the job seeker feel more confident and prepared for their upcoming job interview and to increase their chances of success in the job search process.
HOW LONG IS AN EXPERT INTERVIEW COACHING SESSION LAST?
Expert interview coaching sessions can vary in length depending on the specific needs and goals of the individual seeking coaching. Some coaching sessions may be as short as 30 minutes, while others may last several hours. The length of the session will depend on factors such as the complexity of the material being covered, the number of topics that need to be addressed, and the individual’s learning style and pace. In general, an expert interview training session will be focused on helping the individual prepare for a specific job interview and will include a combination of instruction, practice, and feedback. The length of the session will be determined based on the needs of the individual and the goals of the coaching.

“I am so delighted. I started to look for a new role in April and 5 months later despite more than 10 first interviews and several second interviews no job offer! I decided to get me a job coach and enrolled on the combined coach and E learning course from Interviewology The E learning was really insightful but it was (in my opinion) the one to one coaching that tipped the balance. Whatever it was the very next interview led to a second interview and today a job offer, finally! A fine return on my investment for sure.”
Diane- Learning & Development Manager (UK)
“Amazing! I can’t thank Job Interviewology for what they did for me. I am actively looking for a job, I have been invited to a few interviews and although I have the right experience for the role, I get extremely nervous, mumble and never know what to say during the interview, therefore zero job offers. After considering various options, I chose Job Interviewology… Best decision ever! From the first second, I got an exceptional service, the process was smooth, tremendously enjoyable. I did an interview today and I confidently say that I nailed it, I felt comfortable, confident and fluent. Whether I get the job or not, is irrelevant. Job Interviewology has equipped me with fantastic skills that will last a life time and really helped me overcome interview fears.”
