One of the most rewarding things I get to do in my business is working with clients one to one to help them land their next job.
When they reach out initially, they are often really struggling.
They are working hard.
But just aren’t getting the results that they want.
Confidence or loss of confidence is more common than you might imagine.
Maybe that’s not a surprise as even the most resilient find it tough after a while.
It’s at this point you really need to consider whether you need to invest in getting some help.
I recently had a client who was in exactly that position.
They had plenty to offer but were really struggling with job interviews.
It’s something that many people that I work with find a struggle.
Which might surprise you, especially as I work with accountants and professionals.
People who are smart, highly committed and good what they do.
Then again think about it differently.
Job interviews are something that you don’t do that frequently.
So it’s really difficult to become really comfortable with them.
Yes there’s no shortage of advice out there on what to do to be successful in job interviews.
But having advice is very different to having someone who actually does mock interviews with you.
Not just asking the questions but also helping you to improve your answers.
To make sure that you really can distinguish between the different types of questions and how to answer them.
To push, encourage and support when you are really struggling when doing a mock interview.
To give you a safe space to practice and make mistakes when it doesn’t matter, so that you can do your best when it’s for real in the job interview.
The client I spoke about earlier went through all of these struggles and has now landed their next job.
Was it easy for them. Definitely not.
At the same time they saw the value of getting someone else to help to get them the result they want.If you are struggling with job interviews, get in touch and let’s have a chat to see whether some one to one support might be right for you.
