SERVICES

Interview Coaching

 

Personalized one-on-one coaching for those applying to college or graduate school and for those already in, entering, or re-entering the workforce.

College and graduate school applicants

Through her individualized coaching, Ethelyn helps high school students formulate their personal statements about who they are, what they want and what they can offer a school—enabling them to answer the two most-important questions for a college applicant: “Why do you want to go to this school,” and “What do you bring to the school that no one else will”?   With her coaching, high school students and graduate school applicants are able to articulate why they want to attend a particular college or university and how to manage the interview process, from the moment they are contacted to the follow-up communication with the interviewer. 

 

With colleges moving to test-score-optional admission the interview is a critical factor in whether or not you’ll be admitted to the school of your choice. And acing your medical school or business school interview is critical to admission.

 

Ethelyn will teach you how to turn a good interview into a great interview.  

First-Job Applicants

College students have spent years learning skills and being intellectually challenged.  Now they need to condense who and what they are into a single document, their resume. Once they pass the resume review process, the next step is the interview.  How you perform on your interview will determine if you get the job. It’s that simple.

 

Ethelyn will teach you what to expect before, during and after your interview, how to prepare, what to wear and the dos and don’ts of the process.  She will prepare you to answer the questions you’ll likely be asked and will help you formulate the questions you can and should ask; just as critical in the process.  Learn how to ace the interview and what to look for when deciding if a company is right for you.

Job re-entry and career changes

If you’re in the workforce already, or planning to re-enter after time off, you probably need to clean the rust off your interview skills. Ethelyn will help you focus on your accomplishments, articulate why you are uniquely qualified for jobs and put forward the best possible you.  You’ll learn how to highlight your qualifications, connect your experience with the job requirements, and portray your strengths in a positive way. You’ll learn various strategies and be able to address an absence from the job market as well as reasons for career or job changes.

Resumes & Cover Letters

Ethelyn helps you prepare a resume and cover letter that get attention. The same concepts Ethelyn applies to interviewing are applied to developing a resume that makes your strengths shine through. Learn how to highlight your unique qualifications and to differentiate yourself from other applicants. Your resume needs to be perfect and Ethelyn helps you achieve that.

Web Presence (LinkedIn)

Creating a profile and presenting yourself on LinkedIn is critical for all job seekers. Ethelyn will show you how to use LinkedIn to your benefit and will explain the nuances of the platform that make the difference between being noticed and being invisible.
