“Shawn was incredible in helping me to prepare for my interview. Firstly, he knew what the role entailed and what questions I was likely to be asked. Secondly, he helped me to draw answers from my experiences to address the selection criteria. Thirdly, he gave me very good advice on how to present myself in a corporate setting.

My interviewers said that I performed extremely well in the interview and I got the job. I would definitely recommend Career Management Services to others.”

“Stress or opportunity?”

You can view the interview as the best opportunity to impress a prospective employer, or as the scariest stress test you could put yourself through. We are here to take away the stress.

Are you off to a traditional interview? Or a behavioural based interview? Will you be subject to the stress test? Or a panel interview? Do you understand how each works? Are you clear what each tries to achieve and how? Have you worked out what they really want to know about you?

Early planning, analysis and practice will give you the best chance of starring. Stars get the offers!

The more successful you are the more successful we are.”
