"...of equal importance was your ability to help identify, evidence and translate skills developed in an established career into new and exciting opportunities."
Fresh Food Industry
"Melanie, thank you. Your work with me has been instrumental in my success in identifying and securing my new job. Your experience and currency in today's employment arena was clearly evident from the start.
However, of equal importance was your ability to help identify, evidence and translate skills developed in an established career into new and exciting opportunities. We often feel we should know things and lack the courage to seek help. Your calm, considered but motivating approach helped dissolve those feelings. So thank you and carry on the great service."
"I can’t thank her enough, and would recommend her to anyone, especially if you are quiet and find talking in public, or amongst strangers not something that comes easy to you."
"After applying for MPharm to study pharmacy, I was anxious in how I was going to manage an interview. The format was sent to me, including many different stations and scenarios, and a group task. I certainly didn’t feel comfortable even thinking about it, and being a very quiet person, it was way out of my comfort zone.
Thankfully, we managed to find Melanie when we did, and she put in so much work and preparation to get me the best possible outcome.The interview wasn’t half as bad as I thought, as she prepared me so well in advance.
She always made me feel relaxed, as she’s so professional but has a lovely manner, I took her advice easily on board, hard as it is to express myself, I felt comfortable with her, and she helped me believe in myself and that I could accomplish my dreams.
I can’t thank her enough, and would recommend her to anyone, especially if you are quiet and find talking in public, or amongst strangers not something that comes easy to you.”

I am very happy (over the moon, actually!) to announce that I was offered the role. Thank you very much Melanie." Career Development
"She was professional and knew what she was doing....I got the job and now I am working for the best company in my life!"
"English isn't my first language so I was worried about my interview for a multicultural company in London. I really wanted to get this job but had only few days before the interview. I prepared an interview by myself and then had a mock interview with Melanie. The price was reasonable. She was professional and knew what she was doing. She gave advice on my prepared answers and it totally sounded better with it. She also boosted my confidence and it helped me a lot to be confident in the real interview. I used the improved answers and some of questions were exactly the same. I got the job and now I am working for the best company in my life!"

Following tailored mock interviews she gave feedback about my interview performance. Outside of the coaching sessions she also answered my questions regarding interview preparation.

The multiple rejections had a negative impact on my performance at interviews and my overall wellbeing. Thanks to Melanie I built up my confidence to sell myself in my job interview. She carefully read my CV, helped me to highlight my strengths and key skills and articulate them to convey a meaningful message to the interviewers. Through her detailed and personalised tips to self reflect and mock interview practice I have improved my verbal and non verbal communication skills. Her support was extremely useful to set up clear goals and take a positive approach in these difficult times.

"I would recommend you try Melanie before considering anyone else."
Candidate Financial Services
"My experience with Melanie exceeded my expectations. I had spoken to many different interview coaches, however, I am so glad I selected Melanie. The free 30 min consultation gave me an insight into Melanie's experience and I could see that she knew exactly what I was looking for. She was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Excellent at setting up presentations and giving back constructive feedback to get you ready for your interview. Melanie also does a lot of work outside of the coaching session answering queries in regard to interview preparation which I found saved me time and helped me prepare much better. I would recommend you try Melanie before considering anyone else. The service is great value for money!!!"

"The real interview went far better than I could have hoped and I got the job!! "
Graduate - Clinical research
“I am a recent graduate and I had an upcoming interview for an amazing job opportunity, however, I have very limited experience with job interviews and I was extremely nervous. Melanie really took the time to work with me on my technique and build my confidence. She even rescheduled a session to a Sunday to ensure I'd be prepared for my interview the following day. We went through practise questions followed by personalised feedback and advice on how to answer. I was then able to use this advice in a final practice interview which left me feeling confident and prepared for the real thing. The real interview went far better than I could have hoped and I got the job!! This would not have been possible without Melanie's expertise and I am forever grateful. Thank you Melanie!"

Tessa - Career Changer
"The help I gained from Melanie was invaluable. She is such a calm and friendly person, which in turn made me feel confident and relaxed in her presence. Her knowledge was crucial in helping update my CV, and critiquing my Cover Letter. I was proud to hand them in with my application once finished, and I have taken away a better understanding of how to structure both. I felt very confident walking in to my interview, and this was largely due to the mock interview Melanie ran through with me the day before.
