SES Career Coaching and Interview Prep

CareerPro Global, through this website, is pleased to announce the availability of career coaching and interview preparation services. Our comprehensive coaching options, led by a Certified Employment Interview Professional (CEIP), have helped numerous clients, from entry level to the Senior Executive Service (SES), to develop more confidence in developing their oral presentations in support of their job applications, and have helped provide them with little-known secrets, such as how to identify and adapt to an interviewer’s style, how to master behavioral-based interviewing, and much more.

Globe and Puzzle Pieces

Below is an overview of our two interview preparation packages. For more information and a free consultation, please contact Pat Duckers.

Basic Interview Coaching

This package is ideal for the person who’s fairly confident in his/her oral presentation skills, but needs a starting point to help put together a strategic action plan to develop a job-winning oral presentation. You’ll learn about the different interview types and questions typically asked in most interviews. You’ll also learn how to identify and adapt your answers to the interviewer’s style. This package includes:

General Interviewing Insights Assessment (GIIA). This specialized assessment, which takes about 10 minutes and can be done in the comfort of your own home, provides a very realistic and typically accurate assessment of how you communicate with others and how others perceive you. This is important because it can raise awareness of flaws within your communication style that might be holding you back from success.

One hour of coaching. We’ll review your GIIA and also present an interactive interviewing success model to help you begin preparing your presidential statement and overview, which will increase your interviewing success. This foundation will give you a strategic direction to help prepare for your next interview, be it a phone screening, one-on-one, or group/panel.

One week of email follow-up with your coach. We’ll assist you with questions and other matters not covered during our initial phone consultation.

This more advanced package is designed for the professional who would like to practice his/her interviewing skills with a coach. In addition to the areas covered in our basic interview coaching package, this package, which places more of an emphasis on behavioral interview questions, will include:

A 30-minute, recorded mock interview. We will craft 12-15 questions based on your target position or job to represent a sampling of different interview question types. You will also receive a CD-ROM of your recorded mock interview at the conclusion of your program.

An evaluation of your answers conducted live with your coach. We’ll set aside a meeting time to play back your answers, at which time your coach will provide constructive feedback designed to raise your awareness of any deficiencies and to reinforce any strengths.

One week of email follow-up with your coach. We’ll assist you with questions and other matters not covered during our initial phone consultations.

Client Testimonial:
“When I think of excellence, I think of two of the members of your staff who are simply great–Lee and Patricia. I have worked closely with both of them. Both are timely, patient, sensitive to circumstances, and brilliant in their work fields. Barbara coached me on three occasions toward my interview, which happened yesterday. One never knows who might be chosen to any position, but I must say I felt prepared during my interview. Her questions of me were on target. Her framing of my answers was outstanding and her feedback and availability extraordinary. Lee took my resume, talked to me a few times, and masterfully constructed a resume that has placed me worthy of being interviewed. There was not one mistake in his work and his sense of how to present my life’s work was obviously what made me attractive to the employer, since previously, my resume had not merited me an interview. I would use either or both again and again.” – George W.
