Have you considered being coached to improve your performance during an interview and wondered what it entailed? As a successful coach of 100’s of educators over the last ten years, let me give you an overview of my approach which includes: (1) a free preliminary review of your resume and cover letter; (2) a brief complimentary telephone in-take conversation; (3) several one-on-one, face-to-face or remote one-hour coaching sessions. The following is a summary of what takes place during each step of the process

Preliminary Review of Your Resume—evaluate the resume using the following criteria:

  1. Less Is More—Is the resume to the point?
  2. Cite accomplishments; not a Job Description
  3. Lead with Your Strengths –catch attention of reviewer
  4. Does your timeline make sense?
  5. Keep format simple and logical
  6. Emphasize accomplishments that match the scope of the job
  7. Omit activities that are not relevant to the position

In-Take Conversation

  1. What position(s) are you seeking?
  2. How long have you been applying for jobs? How many jobs have you applied for?
  3. How many first-round interviews have you had? Second-round? Beyond second-round?
  4. What do you think the problem might be in not moving on in the process?
  5. Information regarding fee; arrange time and place of first session; clarify issues stemming from the resume review; and answer your additional questions.
