Job Search & Interview Coaching

Coaching Overview Overview

Pass the Final Hiring Test.

123JobCentral Coaches are Hiring Professionals — seasoned Recruiters and former Hiring Managers whose core competency is hiring and getting people hired. They've been working with people like you as potential employees, contractors and consultants for more than 10 years. On the employer side, they've interviewed, hired and placed thousands of candidates. They know firsthand what today's employer wants and how jobseekers can leverage strengths and minimize weaknesses. 123JobCentral coaches bring a real world advantage to the jobseeker that "generalist" career coaches (or your best friend) just can't give you.

Your coaching session is conducted one-on-one over-the-phone with a 123JobCentral Professional Coach and lasts approximatly 1-½ hours. We take the time to match you with the right Coach to support you at your specific career level.

Interview Prep Coaching
Need to prep for a specific interview? We're here to help. Your Coach will help you strategize about the requirements of the job and of the employer's environment. This includes identifying "professional personality" traits that are critical to the job and the selection of the final candidate. This type of preparation helps you see — and be seen — beyond the basic job description. The Interview Prep Coaching is a half-session generally lasting 30 – 45 minutes.

Job Search Coaching
In this competitive job market as many as 80% of positions are never advertised. That's the Hidden Job Market. In a normal economy only 20% of jobs are in the Hidden Job Market. This is why there's no "silver bullet", no single approach to generating interviews. During your session with your Coach, you'll work together to build a specific action plan. 123JobCentral has 40+ proven job search techniques but every approach isn't a good fit for every candidate — an executive in San Francisco has different needs than an administrative assistant in New York. That's why a custom action plan is critical. Your Coach will help identify the top 7 – 9 action items that are the highest percentage activities for you. Topics like "How to network when your friends don't know of any jobs" and "Working your LinkedIn Profile — not just having one". The action plan provides you with plenty of opportunity to generate the meaningful interviews you need to land your target job within 60 days.

Interview Coaching
Knowledge — and trial runs with honest feedback — is power. One session with your Coach will give you a totally different feeling about facing your next interview. Our focused interview coaching session, covering employer's views, "stand out" strategies, a mock interview and a wrap-up game plan will put you in the driver's seat when it comes to interviewing. Your Coach will help you with techniques to overcome your perceived weaknesses and prepare you for "speed bumps" that could throw you off track. What did the interviewer really think? You may never know ... but our Coaches have heard the feedback many times. With 123JobCentral's ongoing research, they turn inside knowledge into power for you.

Combo Coaching
Combo Coaching is basically just what it sounds like — Job Search and Interview Coaching in one session. Since your needs probably differ from those of other clients, the "combo" approach delivers a truly custom solution where you decide how much of the session focuses on building the action plan vs. interviewing skills.
