Interview Skills for Adults and Students

I teach students and adults how to master the art of the interview.

Practice Sessions

During our sessions, we'll discuss how to prepare for an interview, what kind of information the interviewer is looking for, how to answer a broad range of questions, and how to combat nerves. You'll also learn the art of body language—what to do and what not to do to make a good impression.

"Tell Me About Yourself"
Most people shudder when they hear "Tell me about yourself." You won't have to worry; you'll learn what to say and how to say it in a way that puts you in the best possible light.  I'll also teach you about the elevator pitch.

Details Make the Difference

You'll leave with a tailor-made list of ways you can perform up to your best in any interview.

Problem with Test Scores or Grades?

I work with students on how to best handle discussing a discrepancy in grades or test scores.

Learn to Interview with a College Sports Coach
I specialize in teaching students how to interview with a college coach. Learn what questions to ask—and what answers to know—in order to make the best impression.

Types of Interviews
School: Prep through grad school, including admissions, alumni, PA school, medical school and dental school.
Job: Interview skills for gradudates entering the job market.
I cover individual,  panel, in-person, phone and video interviews, depending on need.

WhereDo We Meet?
I conduct interview skills sessions one-on-one or by video (Facetime, Google Hangouts, Skype), depending on the student's location and preference. 

Confidence, Energy, Enthusiasm, Connection
Students head into their interviews feeling more confident and in control.  They've learned what they want to say and how to say it in a way that will help them stand out and be remembered.

Recent Testimonials
"I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your coaching and inspiration you provided to my daughter.  I am 100 percent certain that the work you did with my daughter in just a few sessions gave her the tools and confidence she needed to ace her college interview and get accepted into Dental School.  You are priceless. I am forever grateful."  Dr. Ronda Bachenheimer

"Emma has decided to attend Case Western Reserve University, receiving 1/2 tuition in merit aid. She had an interview there in the fall that went very well, and she was able to discuss her passion for ballet and desire to combine science and the arts. Case emphasizes the combination of creative and performing arts with science; she plans to major in chemistry and minor in dance.  She was accepted to all 9 schools to which she applied and early action to all of the schools that offered that choice. She received very generous merit aid from most. Looking back, she recognizes the value of the skills she learned working with you. It was time and money very well spent. We have seen such a positive change this year in how she interacts socially and in her ability to present herself and her accomplishments. Our younger daughter Cate is completing her sophomore year; I am sure we will be contacting you in the future to work with her as well.  We have already referred another friend who also has an accomplished, introverted daughter."
Thanks again- Dana Schmidt and John Strong

As an alumni interviewer
for Cornell University, I learned what interviewers look for in a successful college applicant.

Now I teach my students these same techniques and secrets.
