It used to be the only part of the employment search a candidate had to worry about was whether the offered salary and benefits were going to be what they required or wanted.

Years ago, that changed with the advent of professional resume writers. With the increasingly competitive job market, it was no longer acceptable or wise to submit a homemade resume.

Now, a new wrinkle has been added to the job search process. Interview coaching.

Preparation for the Interview is Critical

Many of you may consider this a luxury or unnecessary. Your skills are solid, your background impeccable, your certifications/education the very best.

Even so, is it enough?

It might not be in this economy. Increasingly, candidates are hiring interview coaches to help them over that last pre-employment hurdle.

Working with a Professional Interview Coach

So what will interview coaching do for you? It depends upon who’s providing the service. At ResumeEdge.com, we provide only those coaches who either hold the CEIP (Certified Employment Interview Professional) designation from the PARW (Professional Association of Resume Writers) or those that are recruiters/human resources managers who have conducted hundreds of interviews in their careers.

Our editors explain to clients the ins and outs of Behavioral Interviews, Traditional Interviews, Lunch Interviews, Phone Interviews, and everything in between.

They provide job interview tips and conduct mock interviews with their clients, preparing them for every eventuality.

With so few jobs and so many candidates vying for a single position, it’s essential to use every resource available…a professional resume service, cover letter writing, and interview coaching.

Money well spent, especially when you get that all important job offer.

My writer cared about me as an individual. She educated me on why my last resume did not produce the results I desired--in a construtive way. I am very satisfied with all her efforts. She did a terrific job!
