Claire Berry Consulting

Feedback from Successful Otolaryngology Head and Neck SET Training Clients

 

“I did interview training with Claire Berry because I felt that numerous applicants do well in the application but then fail at the interview. I knew that Claire’s training would help me with nerves and the fact that I had never had to previously perfect interview skills.”

“An investment in Claire’s specialist ENT interview training made sense.”

“In a College selection process, you need to set yourself apart and look polished and prepared on the day in every respect. I’ve spoken to many consultants who agree that the difference in candidates between those who have practised and prepared (including seeking specialist interview training) and those who have not is like chalk and cheese. Claire’s interview training allowed me to succeed and perform as well as possible in the interview.”

“Claire is the only medical interview expert with a history of success in ENT. ENT is so competitive and I wanted to do well in the interview. So much time goes into completing the requirements for the application, so it makes sense to also complete specialty interview coaching. In hindsight, it is common sense. I felt really relaxed when I was before the panels and could concentrate easily as I was so well prepared after our interview training.”

“I was recommended Claire’s interview preparation services by a SET trainee who had used them to prepare for the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons SET interviews. This particular interview is not a standard interview and is notoriously challenging and difficult to master, especially on your first attempt. My colleague had been successful following some training with Claire and I was keen to optimise my chances of success. When I arrived at my first appointment, she had already thoroughly researched my specialty and knew intricate details of the specific interview process and of the specialty itself. We launched into practise questions immediately where she provided a critical but practical appraisal of my answers with suggestions for improvement and refinement. I was able to draw on these suggestions and worked hard between sessions to improve the structure of my responses. I arrived at the interview feeling prepared and quietly confident, which I think allowed my personality to be reflected in my interview style.”

“I don’t think I would have enjoyed immediate success without Claire’s guidance through the process. I was fortunate enough to be successful on my first SET application and am now extremely excited about commencing training. I would encourage any prospective SET trainees to enlist Claire’s interview services, however, to maximise their potential, make sure you leave adequate time to practise. I will definitely be recommending Claire’s services to my pre-SET colleagues.”

“As a result of the training that I did with Claire Berry consulting and the practice we did, I developed a great deal of confidence which was key to my success on the day. This was important when competing against others who had interviewed multiple times before. I had a plan and structure to approach questions and felt that I could deliver on content and communication skills.”

  ******

“Claire’s experience with other surgical and medical candidates successfully interviewing for numerous roles was very reassuring, as was her commitment and genuine interest in the content I had to cover and the background research/reading you had done in preparing for our sessions.”

  ******

“I think candidates focus on perfecting the model answer. However, during our sessions Claire was good at picking up on other elements of the interview that matter. I suspect what got me over the line was the ability to control nerves and communicate professionally in order to perform well which Claire taught me.”

  ******

“Again, a big heartfelt thanks to you for all your help Claire! Keep up your good work!”
