Searching For Interview Coaching Near Me

After graduation, I spent time searching for interview coaching near me, but was unable to locate a service close by. When I founded Clear Cut Selection in 2014, I had spent almost 10 years working internationally in Human Resources departments managing recruitment processes and interviewing candidates. Drawing upon my professional experience and HR qualifications, I was able to leverage technology to address a gap in the market. Today, my interview coaching services by Skype, FaceTime or phone allow my clients in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world to enjoy high-calibre coaching, from the comfort of their own homes or offices. This incredibly efficient and proven way of working eliminates the need for clients to travel, and means sessions can be booked immediately and offered on short notice, including the same day. This means that we can offer our clients highly competitive rates, value for money and flexibility from a scheduling perspective.
