"I got the sleep job!! It was very tough competiton but I made it through!! Your help was invaluable!!! I am so pleased. Nearly all the questions came up including my research situation and having to leave suddenly and it all went so well. Thank you. " Daisy


"It's been a busy time since we last spoke so apologies for not getting in touch sooner. As I'm sure you were aware, I was brutally unprepared for the consultant interview that I had flown back for almost 2 weeks ago. I had hoped to start looking for jobs and preparing adequately on my return from fellowship in Australia but the dream job came up and I had to put my hat into the ring. Our 2-hour Skype session laid bare the lack of/miss guided preparation that I had under my belt only hours before my first consultant interview (and first interview for over 6 years). I will be honest and confess that I did feel somewhat broken, despondent and doomed after our 2 hour session and repaired to the hotel bar for a stiff gin and tonic to contemplate my forthcoming fate. I went to bed at 11 but awoke at 4am (Oz jet lag and fear combined) and proceeded to rehearse my answers to the many questions using your formulae. I went into the interview at 2pm on that Friday and something clicked. I went at it full pelt against the odds and .... got the job! Many thanks for all your help in re-calibrating my approach to answering the questions. I suspect the main take home message was that every questions should be turned around to sell yourself. I am very grateful for your help in making this happen."


"Indeed sincere thanks for all your help. I was successful at interview."


"Just a quick e-mail to let you know that the job in Birmingham! Thank you so much for your help during our session, and for sending me the attachments. I found our session really helpful, and I was able to practice my techniques before doing the consultant interview course on Saturday, where I felt I did better and was able to go into the interview much better prepared. Many thanks again for all your help, which I really appreciated, and clearly made a huge difference."


"Just a quick note to let you know I got the job!! I am delighted I will never have to go through that again. Afterwards, I was told on that paper that the candidates were all equal, so I really needed a strong interview performance. They were all very impressed with my interview. Please pass on my thanks to Julia."
