The interview skills you provided me with are extremely translatable for future interviews! I just interviewed for another consultant role and was appointed! I have received glowing feedback from each panel (both of whom are members of the hospital executive). They said that each interview was one of the best they have seen! They said I was extremely clear and well considered in my responses and I sold my skills perfectly. I couldn’t have done it without you.

Successful Consultant

The interview went really well! I was very well prepared. My performance resulted in me getting the highest interview mark from the panel.

Successful Consultant
Major Metropolitan hospital, 2017

I have no doubt that my success at interview for a consultant job was due to the coaching that I had with Claire. Her understanding of the requirements for success at a consultant level interview and her experience coaching medics for this important last hurdle were invaluable. Her practical approach and command of the professional language style ensured focused skype sessions and much to practice in between. The stress of not having a permanent job is now behind me.
