STEP 1: INTERVIEW STRATEGY SESSION

This session serves as a starting point for your interview preparation, as we:

  • Meet with you one-on-one to discuss the fundamentals of the interview process and answer your questions to demystify this process.
  • Perform in-depth case studies of sample interview questions.
  • Provide strategies for answering difficult scenarios.

This session is most effective if completed prior to MOCK INTERVIEW LEVEL 1 (see description below). We recommend scheduling this session early in the preparation process to allow for appropriate time to integrate our feedback and optimize your mock interview experience.

We offer two types of strategy sessions:

  • For First-Time Interview Candidates: This is your chance to understand the fundamentals of the interview process and brainstorm strategies for tackling difficult questions.
  • For Repeat Interview Candidates: Since candidates who are repeat interview candidates already understand the process and format of the interview, we identify potential weaknesses in your approach and work with you to develop specific strategies to fine tune your preparation.

COST (1 HOUR SESSION): $150
