  • A successful video, phone, or in-person interview reveals the person behind the paper. It’s an opportunity to be authentic in light of what a prospective congregation or employer seeks.
  • Coaching helps you:
    Be yourself while highlighting personal background, experience and determination to succeed
  • Gently steer an interview to a genuine personal message designed to open a relationship
  • Turn a tough question into an opportunity to speak in a positive voice
  • Look and sound your best on-camera, the phone and in person
  • Increase the chances of being invited to take the next step in the interview process
