Apologies for not replying sooner, things have been hectic!

Since we last spoke, I’ve had a total of 3 interviews after submitting to four different job positions in the ACT. Of the 3 interviews one is now in the advanced stages (Solutions Architect with [name omitted for privacy]), I have the third and final interview tomorrow.

The resume looks absolutely fantastic, it exceeds my expectations. However what I found of significant value was the interview coaching and your book - 10 key steps to Ace that Interview!. I have read this carefully and used various of you questions at the appropriate points including the do’s and don’ts. I have learned a lot from this in a very short period. Again, I personally found this of great value!

10 key steps to Ace that Interview

ATTENTION: graduate, professional, return-to-work, mature age, migrant and senior level job seekers

Do you ever "trip over your own tongue", become "tongue-tied", or feel you're just not delivering your best performance during a job interview?

Imagine...if you could instantly:

conquer the top 10 mistakes that 9 out of 10 job seekers unknowingly stumble on;  
  answer each question easily and effortlessly; and  
  maintain a high standard of professionalism throughout the interview to secure that edge over your competitors;  
     
What would that mean to you?  


Here's a quick quiz that could make a dramatic impact on how successful your next interview will be.

Do you want to learn simple yet powerful psychological techniques you can use to understand your interviewer's communication style allowing you to build instant rapport - crucial in the opening stages of any interview?  
  Yes No
 
 
Do you want to elevate and set apart your knowledge and skills from your competitors even during situations of limited experience, and even when your competitors' experience and qualifications are well above your own?  
 

Yes No

 
Do you want to easily and effortlessly boost your salary package through developing insightful and influential salary negotiation techniques?  
 

Yes No

 
Do you want to discover a little-known questioning tactic that can catapult your status as the top candidate in the interviewer's mind?  
 
Yes No

 
     
  If you have answered YES to any (or all) of the above, the great news is: you can easily achieve all these things with the specialised knowledge and and strategies exposed in 10 key steps to Ace that Interview!  

From the desk of Annemarie Cross

Dear Job Seeker,

I am continually surprised as to why countless highly skilled and well qualified candidates still experience interview setback and elimination even when they are the most qualified and best suited person for the role.

Are you one of the thousands who experience interview knock backs and struggle with 'why' you fail to reach second interview stage, and eventual job offer?

Hi, my name is Annemarie Cross, and as a Certified Employment Interview Professional & Career Coach I have worked with hundreds of clients over the last 17 years supporting them in overcoming the 10 common pitfalls that cause so many candidates to fail during the interview process.

The complex dynamics of employment interviewing are ever-changing with each position we apply for; each company we approach; and with each interviewer, who bring their own communication styles, mannerisms, and beliefs to the meeting. All of these situations can affect the rapport-building process, relevant material to discuss, and the flow and understanding of information between you and the interviewer. 

Imagine if you could strengthen and enhance, or revolutionise your interview techniques, enabling you to deliver a dynamic and unforgettable performance.
 

Libby Lonigro...

I just wanted to write to you and let you know how great I found the book "10 key steps to Ace the Interview" and the workbook that was included.

On Friday, I had an interview and I used your strategies and for the first time, I went extremely well.  I do not know yet if I have been successful, but I said and did all the right things.

It has been about 14 months (have been temping in the meantime), going to endless interviews and I have had some bad dealings with agencies except for this last role - everything seemed to flow in perfect harmony!!

I especially took notice of your hint about what to do at the end of the interview.  It was more or less like closing a deal in sales terms and I think the interviewers were impressed by that.

Thank you once again for your fantastic advice and interview strategies. I wish I had a copy 14 months ago.

Melissa Martin...


I have read many similar books over my career to date, some good and some not to good, and I would have to say that Annemarie’s book  - 10 key steps to Ace that Interview is one of the better ones!

Annemarie successfully covers a range of relevant topics which gives the reader an understanding of the process, what the interviewer is seeking, how to respond to the different interview types, build confidence and effectively communicate.

From my experience, if those attending interviews were to implement only a few of her suggestions they would increase their chances of doing well at the interview stage.

I would certainly recommend her book to any of my career coaching clients or those recruitment candidates who seek feedback / assistance with their interview techniques.

"A clear and useful guide to interviewing for that perfect job...without the fluff and hype of many of these guides."
