"I sought Melanie’s expertise with my pupillage applications and my pupillage and paralegal interviews. Melanie’s support was incredible and I have already recommended her to my colleagues going through the same process. I really struggled with nerves and confidence during interviews. She quickly tailored the sessions and I gained confidence in my example answers about my various work experiences. Melanie also enabled me to structure, discuss and deliver my answers to questions, with confidence and enthusiasm. Although, I was unsuccessful in obtaining pupillage. I continued to work on my interview skills, implementing what I had learnt during my sessions with Melanie. Thereafter, I successfully secured a legal managerial position and received highly favourable feedback from another firm of solicitors. Thank you again, Melanie!"

"I initially used Melanie’s services in relation to my paper applications - I sent her two applications to review and was tremendously impressed by her comments on them. As a result, my success rate has dramatically increased at the paper sift. In 2020, I made 10 applications and secured 4 interviews; in 2021, I made 11 applications and was invited to 10 first round interviews.

 

In this year's cycle, I had several mock interviews with Melanie. I was just as impressed with her mock interviews - she was highly prepared and came to the sessions with a bank of relevant questions, provided insights into the Chambers that I would be interviewing at and what they may be looking for, and gave extremely helpful feedback on my mock interview performances. This has been my most successful pupillage application cycle and Melanie's advice has been invaluable."

"Melanie provided a highly professional and constructive service throughout the gruelling pupillage application process. She offered me a number of prompt and well-structured Skype calls which included mock-interviews and detailed feedback. This greatly increased my confidence going into my interviews. I particularly appreciated her endeavours to  understand my personal and academic background, to really get to grips with what made me tick as a candidate and what would be most important to convey to a pupillage committee. She combines technical HR experience with a warm and personable manner, which was indispensable during that highly stressful period."

"It was a great pleasure to work with Melanie. I was looking for career development opportunities, however, my interviews were not going well. I was receiving plenty of rejections and I started to lose my confidence. At this point I contacted Melanie.

 

She was very supportive, flexible and helpful during this period. To achieve my goal we worked on my CV and interview questions. Following tailored mock interviews she gave me feedback about my interview performance. Outside of the coaching sessions she also answered my questions regarding interview preparation. Melanie made me feel more confident about my skills and helped me to realise how strong a background I do have.

As a result of our coaching sessions I received 3 job offers and accepted the one which fits me best for my career growth.

I highly recommend Melanie. She has great knowledge and she really understands your needs. If I need to I will be back fro her coaching service again. Thank you Melanie I couldn't have achieved my goal without your help."

Future Pupil Barrister 2022-

“Melanie provided an outstanding service that played an vital role in me successfully obtaining pupillage this year. 

 

From the start, Melanie quickly understood my skills and experience, where my application needed to be improved and how I was going to improve it. Ultimately, this came down to gaining more interview experience. Melanie conducted mock interviews and advocacy exercises, and she arrived at our sessions well prepared and willing to constructively challenge my answers. As a result, the feedback she provided was invaluable. By the time I stepped (virtually) into second round interviews, I knew that I could answer pretty much any question that could be thrown my way.

 

The key to succeeding in pupillage interviews is, I believe, an ability to remain calm, relaxed and composed. The challenging and realistic nature of the mocks that Melanie conducted, as well as the constructive feedback and encouragement Melanie provided, meant that I was self-assured and confident in my abilities. Despite the rigorous nature of pupillage interviews, I never felt out of my depth. In large part, that was due to the meticulous preparation I had done with Melanie. Through Melanie’s helpful and patient tutoring, I learnt how to bring out my ‘best self’ and in the end that is what made the difference.

 

Finally, Melanie is friendly, professional and easy to get along with. I have already recommended her services to my fellow Bar course students and cannot recommend her highly enough to anyone reading this. 

 

Thank you very much Melanie!"

The multiple rejections had a negative impact on my performance at interviews and my overall wellbeing. Thanks to Melanie I build up my confidence to sell myself in my job interview. She carefully read my CV, helped my highlight my strengths and my key skills and articulate them to convey a meaningful message to impress the interviewers.

Through her detailed and personalised tips to self reflect and mock interview practice I have improved both 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.

Melanie was flexible  to accommodate the sessions at a suitable time, including evenings and weekends. Always approachable and efficient she answered all my email queries swiftly.

Her guidance helped me to rebuild my confidence, which was reflected in my job interview. Thanks to Melanie I finally got the job, with a promotion and a permanent contract! I couldn't be more grateful. Her support also enabled me to transfer my skills to multiple settings, and I received feedback from people who commented on how confident I sound when talking in public now."

Before our Skype session (where we went through two of my previous applications) Melanie asked questions via email so that the session ran smoothly. The session was very well structured, and Melanie ensured that time was used effectively. Melanie encouraged me to consider all of the soft skills that I had gained through my experiences. She also conducted thorough research into the chambers that I had applied to and gave me insight into how to tailor my applications to them. I now feel in a strong position to highlight my best experiences and skills, tailor and make my applications stand out.

After our first few sessions, she knew my academic and professional background inside out and really understood the impact that early rejections had on my confidence. She combined her excellent and personable customer service with practical advice about tackling the applications and interviews themselves, as well as dealing with the emotional strain of several months working through the Gateway.

"Approaching Melanie to train for my interview was the best decision I made! She radiates positivity and builds a rapport effortlessly.
All prospective interviewees – please realize that you have only one shot at a first Interview and first impressions last.
Melanie made the effort to scrutinize not just my Application but also the Chambers in order to devise questions. So thorough was her homework that no question fielded by the panel caught me off guard. Anyone can conduct a mock interview, but the constructive criticism and feedback that Melanie provides is invaluable. She does not stop at instilling confidence but also trains the candidate to ‘project’ confidence.
Her services are client centric and flexible. She readily accepted my request to break down our sessions over three days which allowed me to prepare without any pressure. To all the students who are working part time, the fee for this service is huge bang for the buck.
I thank her for making my First Pupillage Interview such a roaring success and look forward to working with her again! "

I genuinely feel that Melanie’s support and advice in the mock interview sessions gave me the confidence I needed, not only to sell myself more effectively but also to identify and resolve the issues that had obviously let me down in the past. In previous mock interviews, I have felt quite uncomfortable and slightly embarrassed; this was far from the case in my sessions with Melanie. I felt like I could be completely honest, which enabled me to really make the most of the time we worked together. 

 

Melanie’s experience was immediately apparent and she provided really practical advice that immediately improved my performance.
