Coaching for behavioural interviews
At my Mooroolbark office (Melbourne), the fee for a ninety (90) minute one-on-one intensive job interview coaching session is $250 + gst.
The session will provide you with the direction you need, to present yourself with greater composure at the job interview and increase your chances of success.
Don’t kid yourself – the person who can do the job best doesn’t always win it, because you’ve also got to learn to sell yourself at the interview. Learn how to improve your interviewing skills and understand the types of behavioural questions that interviewers are increasingly asking.
In this one-on-one interview training session, you will be rehearsing your interview with an experienced interviewer. You will be able to practice the skills you need to feel more confident speaking about your experience, achievements and capabilities.
You will gain the benefit of constructive feedback from a professional job interview coach who brings over twenty-five years of experience in the recruitment field. Call now to enquire – 0430 972 578
“I’d been shortlisted for several interviews but not succeeding in winning a job offer. I knew I had good experience and relevant qualifications but apparently wasn’t impressing interviewers in the right way. And it was difficult to obtain any helpful feedback in order to improve – so I eventually decided to seek assistance from a professional. Brian helped me to identify stronger examples than the one’s I’d been using – and he also helped me to present the examples in a way that better show-cased my strengths. ….. After one session with him, I regained my confidence and was selected as the preferred candidate at my next interview.” (Jessica, Events Management Co-ordinator role, 2019)
What are behavioural interview questions?
If you’ve been out of the interview game for a while, then you might not be so familiar with the increased use of behavioural questions by interviewers. These are interview questions that ask you for an example of when and how you have handled a specific type of situation or when you have displayed a specific capability or quality. For example, “Tell us about a time when you demonstrated initiative – describe the situation, your actions and the result?” or “Give us an example of a difficult customer that you had to deal with – how did you handle them?” or “Tell us about a major task or project you worked on recently, and how you went about organising it?”
In a coaching session, I ensure that you are using a strong and relevant example in your response. And we practice the use of the STAR structure, which is a method or way of presenting your example that many interviewers require.(ie. describing the Situation, Task, Actions, Result) ……. In particular, we make sure that the Actions you are describing are helping to showcase your strengths and skills.
Sample behavioural questions can give you a better idea of what you might encounter and help you to prepare, depending upon the selection criteria and the job requirements.

Interviews And Perseverance
It’s easy to get discouraged after a couple of unsuccessful interviews – or what can be worse, not even winning an interview. There is no doubt that for the majority of people, it can become a real test of endurance to obtain the job they want. Of course, interview training can help – but often what is more important is looking within yourself and finding the courage you need to persevere and retain your self-belief.
