Hi! My name is Kathleen. I decided to start my own company, Phone Interview Practice (PIP), to help people overcome their fears and obstacles when it comes to interviews.
With nearly 25 years of combined experience as a hiring manager and recruiter, I have conducted thousands of interviews.
A great majority of the people I've spoken with on the phone (and in person) struggle with the same challenges:
Feeling uneasy about the very idea of a phone interview
Getting flustered by unexpected questions
Lacking confidence to take credit for their past work
Talking too fast, too much, or not enough
Ineffectively explaining gaps in their employment history
Struggling to find examples to illustrate how they have solved problems
These struggles not only directly affect their interview outcomes but also their ability to negotiate for the recognition they deserve - Title, Promotion, and Salary.
Seeing People with My Ears! - Because I conduct so many interviews on the phone, I have to actively listen to truly hear candidates, to gain insight into who they are as people and as professionals.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY?
