Working with a client

I'll coach you so you get the job.

 

I know interviews and I know communication 

You won't find many interview coaches who combine

Corporate management experience

A graduate degree in corporate communication

English teaching experience

I have all three of these.

There are other interview coaches out there, but not many have this kind of experience.


I've helped hundreds of clients – actually I think it may be in the thousands by now

...from all industries, all experience levels, with different communication skills – succeed in their interviews. They've gotten jobs at PwC, Amazon, Lowe’s, Uber, Brigham & Women's Hospital, Ernst & Young, etc., just to name a few. 

 

More details about my education and experience...

I managed a large team at the biggest publishing company in the world

In college I was an English major, and my first job was as a copyeditor working on Cell, a molecular biology journal owned by Reed Elsevier. I worked there for 7 years and became the Senior Managing Editor of two journals, Molecular Cell and Immunity. During those years I interviewed, hired, and managed dozens of copyeditors, proofreaders, editors, designers, compositors, and printing companies. I think I interviewed just about everyone in New England!

I negotiated $10 million per year in contracts at a global, multinational company

I switched to the business side of publishing at Pearson, where as Contracts Manager, I negotiated $10M per year in editorial contracts with vendors. I talked to sales people about their teams and products and established contracts with hundreds of vendors that wrote and edited our textbooks. In that role, I gained world-class negotiating skills.

I was trained in interviewing and public speaking

While I was working, I went back to school to study Corporate Communication and got a Master's in Corporate Communication from Northeastern University. Through this training, I mastered the art of giving speeches and presentations.

I became an ESL and Business English teacher 

More recently, I earned a Teaching English as a Second Language certificate at the Boston Language Institute and then taught ESL, eventually specializing in Business English. Now I focus on interview preparation.
