Job Search Coaching

The first initial intake session with LoTrain Consulting is typically 1.5-2 hours. Coaching is available by telephone, video call, or in-person.

With A LoTrain Consultant you can:

  • Become confident and convincing by developing a personalized strategy with your consultant for talking about your strengths and weaknesses and how you can be an asset for this job in particular.

  • Get personalized answers to the most common, most difficult interview questions, the ones that throw most applicants off their game and put the interview into a tailspin.

  • Eliminate nervousness and stress, before and during the interview by practicing those difficult answers and getting feedback. You'll go from being a jittery job applicant to a cool, confident candidate, faster than you can say, "I'm hired!"

  • Get candid, expert feedback on your answers and what you need to do to improve your interview style and personal branding.

  • Practice answering questions without sounding scripted. Rehearsing your answers before your interview is an absolute MUST; but come off sounding scripted, and you will blow your chances of getting the job!

  • Learn the difference between behavioral and situational questions, and how to answer both types. These two types of questions are completely different. If you don't understand the purpose of each type, and know exactly how you should answer each one, your chances of getting the job will plummet!

 

How Will LoTrain Consulting Prepare You?

Your assigned consultant  will start with a brief informational interview where we ask you about the job you are seeking and what you feel your deficiencies are. We then will complete a diagnostic mock interview with you. It’ll help us calibrate your current interview performance. From there, we’ll offer an assessment of how you’re currently performing.  We will explain what’s working, what’s not, and how to improve it. Then, much like a physical therapist, the consultant will start working with you on a variety of exercises to develop your personal brand and interview responses, tailored to you.

At the end of the first session, the consultant may  email you notes, summarizing areas of improvement and exercises they’d like you to complete before the next session.

Mock interview questions will cover the following topics and more:

  • S.T.A.R. Method and how this process will help you develop concrete answers  to difficult interview questions
