I highly, highly recommend Dalena Bradley as a Job Interview Coach. If you’re looking to make a job change, Dalena’s coaching & support is worth gold. When I decided to make a change, it had been a long time since I’d been in the role of interviewee instead of interviewer.
Dalena helped me articulate the value I bring to employers by coaching me to craft my unique “story” and anticipate and prepare for tough questions. I strongly recommend you take advantage of her mock interview service. The experience, feedback and recommendations she provided were invaluable. Dalena provides excellent guidance around when to follow up between interviews, how to negotiate an offer and more. Invest in yourself by working with Dalena – the confidence you’ll gain are a 10x ROI.
“After doing a few high profile interviews and failing to receive the offers, I was recommended to Dalena from a close friend who had benefited from Dalena’s interview prep services. I can now see why she was so highly recommended!
I immediately felt supported, received multiple job offers, gained more confidence, and gathered some new resources to help with future searches. All good things!
As a coach, Dalena has a highly professional nature with a very positive, caring, and fun twist. Most importantly, her advice is on-point. We uncovered that I should use more concrete examples in my interviews, and she taught me some easy interview hacks to be more prepared for various behavioral interview questions. She also sent me suggestions to upgrade my computer hardware for better visibility on zoom calls! So appreciated.
In the future, I would definitely reach out to Dalena for advice on closing deals, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for that top tier, 1:1 approach.“
We scheduled meetings in time for me to practice and prepare. Now, I have feedback that I can also apply in my professional life that improves my speaking skills.
I plan to reach out to Dalena the next time I need to brush up on my communication skills. I know she will be able to help.
Most importantly, though, I GOT THE JOB!”
“It had been several years since I interviewed for a role and I wanted to make sure I was prepared. I was referred to Dalena and I am grateful for her assistance. She provided resources to allow me to prepare for a mock interview which was recorded. She provided immediate feedback during mock interview and I was also able to review the recording after I had time to reflect. I appreciated the opportunity to have this “first interview in a long time” in a safe space where I could make a few mistakes and learn from them. Her insights and coaching were invaluable. I went into my interviews with confidence and am happy to report I got the job!
“I was beginning my first job search in over 20 years and felt I needed to develop a plan for my search and to brush up on my interview skills. This was especially important with the changing interview process during COVID. I was referred to Dalena from a friend and from the first time we met I knew I had made a good choice.
My time with Dalena consisted of interviews going over my past work experience, my current situation and what I was looking for in my next opportunity. This was used to begin outlining an overall plan for my search. From there we conducted a series of video calls and mock interviews. We discussed each interview and she provided feedback, which I found very helpful. As a result of my work with Dalena I found myself very prepared for interviews.
I also found Dalena a very valuable resource to discuss offers and next steps in working to close the deal. I would highly recommend Dalena’s services to those beginning a job search process.”
After learning and practicing the SOAR framework in the mock interviews, I was easily able to answer interview questions and pivot, when needed. Aside from working on content, Dalena gave me several pre-interview suggestions to get mentally prepared, which were instrumental to calming my nerves and feeling totally confident in my interview abilities.
Within weeks, I was offered a new role with a national Fortune 500 company. The salary negotiation consultations were key in helping me land the right compensation package. Dalena is expert in offering suggestions to ensure the compensation package is equitable, fair, and at the level for the role and her client’s needs.
I cannot thank Dalena enough for helping me realize my full interview potential! Her clear, kind feedback helped me quickly implement new strategies that led to renewed confidence, not only in my interview abilities but in ME! Every day since starting my new job, I have been grateful for her help.”
Something I particularly remember from Dalena is that she is a good listener. She was patient, listening to my numerous comments and concerns, and she made sure I got answers and feedback for every one of them.
I can attest that Dalena is outstanding as a coach, easy to work with, and provides excellent resources to complement the one-on-one interaction. I had immediate success with her help and received the position I was seeking.”
