Medical Interview Skills Coaching.

HSE / NHS

Applying for a New Job?

At i4 Training we have developed a highly recommended Interview Skills Coaching Package to help medics succeed in BST, HST, Stand-alone and Consultant post interviews.

I believe that effectively preparing for an interview is a critical skill for any medic wishing to develop their career. However, a lot of people, having worked so hard to gain the relevant skills and experience, struggle to represent themselves effectively in interviews. 

Questions.

Are you someone who struggles to sell themselves in an interview? 

Do you find the pressure and your resulting nerves affect your performance on the day?

Would improving your ability to structure your answers help prevent the waffle!?

How can you make sure you are engaging with the interview panel, particularly during remote interviews?

Sessions can be done virtually via WebEx, Zoom or Skype.

i4 Trainings Interview Coaching Package has been developed to help medics succeed in competency-based interviews. It includes a link to a 45 min video (tailored to your career situation) and accompanying i4 Training interview readiness materials. The self-learning approach introduces the key concepts of this programme and allows you to work through the worksheets at your own pace. This stage is to be completed prior to meeting me so that you maximise our 1 to 1 coaching session.

Impact of Interview Skills Coaching.

Jo Irwin has a vast experience in the medical interview processes, specifically the challenge posed by the BST and HST scheme interviews. The combination of having a background in sales and 25+ years of delivering training in healthcare environment seems to be the winning formula. 

Our current client’s success rate of approx. 85% we believe is testament to this.

A 1 to 1 coaching session to practice a mock interview, embed new skills and receive real time interview skills feedback. The 1 to 1 session can be delivered either via Zoom/WebEx or face to face (where feasible) and typically last 2hrs.

Interview Skills Programme Costs.

The standard i4 Training Interview Skills Programme costs E200. This includes the prep material, a link to the video and 2 hours of coaching.

To date, I have trained approaching one thousand interview candidates and the majority find that they are sufficiently prepared after completing the standard course. However, if you wish to receive additional coaching, extra sessions are charged at €75 per hour.
