Need coaching for your next job interview?
Due to the Government’s lockdown restrictions, our centre is closed for in-person appointments. However, our full range of online one-to-one coaching appointments is still available to book.
Whether you need a coaching session because you are changing job sectors and nervous about demonstrating your transferrable skills and experience in job interviews or you need an interview coaching or a mock interview session to practice answering those tricky interview questions. Maybe it's been a long time since you had an interview and you're struggling with interview nerves and anxieties, we're here to help.
Our one-to-one interview coaching appointments give crucial interview skills and video interviewing practice to make that first impression count and excel in a job interview.
About our coaches
Our fantastic interview coaches are volunteers who come from a wide range of professional backgrounds, expertise and experience including HR consultancy, business managers, recruitment consultants, business owners, retired managers, business directors, and more all wanting to offer their help during these times. Our coaches are on hand to share invaluable tips, advice, and support to help people to regain employment. Appointments are one-to-one and last approx 1-hour.
How's your CV?
Due to the number of job losses caused by the pandemic, there are a lot more people applying for every job vacancy. Does your CV stand out? Is your CV not even getting you a job interview? Let us take a look at your CV for you.
Video interview practice
Recorded video interviews are fast becoming the new normal by recruiters when doing initial stage job interviews. Employers are increasingly using video interviews as part of their recruitment process. Practice your video interview presentation skills with a video mock interview that you can record in your own time. Record your answers to a number of competency-based interview questions and get feedback on your video interview from our coaches.
Need interview clothing?
While lockdown restrictions are in place Suited for Success will continue to provide FREE high-quality interview clothes, styling advice, and presentation skills for unemployed people going for a job interview. Interview clothing provision is via collection from our referral centre in central Birmingham (or postal delivery depending on circumstances).
We can provide FREE interview clothing with proof of a guaranteed job interview OR include interview clothing support with an interview coaching or mock interview appointment booking (if required).
Our interview clothing provision includes a video appointment with one of our stylists to find out a bit more about the job interview, to ask about sizes, clothing preferences and to arrange a collection date and time. (Unfortunately, we are not able to offer to option to try on the clothing due to current covid health and safety restrictions, however, we are happy to exchange clothing).
Masterclasses, webinars, bespoke workshop days
Working with employers, businesses, and business professionals we are developing a number of webinars, masterclasses, online workshops and bespoke coaching days providing invaluable tools, resources, help, and advice to get you back to work. Our online support can be accessed in the comfort of your own home.
New Job Start support
Did you lose your job due to the pandemic? Or were you on furlough for a long time and now nervous about starting a new job?
