As a senior professional looking to land the next challenging and exciting role, Michael’s interview preparation and practical coaching has been highly effective.
His guidance on interviewer styles, question format and the question objective has really improved my ability to standout positively in recent interviews.
Feedback from potential employers has been excellent.
Most importantly I have felt extremely confident, well prepared and at ease in interacting with the potential employer and recruiters. I highly recommend seeking out Michael and working with him to raise your interview strength to the next level
Edward (Calgary) - Senior Engineer
I lost my previous job during the onset of Covid-19 and began my search for work in a challenging economy. After discovering a posting for a job I really wanted, I knew I had to do everything I could to separate myself from hundreds of other applicants.
I reached out to Michael for help and he guided me through the entire preparation process.
He provided resources, preparation activities, multiple one-on-one coaching and mock interview sessions that helped me learn how to navigate difficult interview questions with confidence. I also noticed that my body language improved and I learned subtle tweaks to my language that made a significant difference to how I communicate and present myself. The progress I made from the first session to the last session was truly amazing. This set of skills will stick with me for the rest of my career
When one of the most important interviews of my career came, the coaching I undertook ensured I was confident, and I got the job.
In the past, I never thought of myself as someone who interviewed well, and I primarily relied on referrals to secure work. I now realize that being excellent at interviewing is not an innate skill, but something that can be learned and developed with proper coaching, resources and practice, and Michael's guidance made all the difference.

A friend recommended that I go and see Michael two days before my interview.
Michael was so inviting and spent over two hours giving me an intensive coaching.
After starting the training, Michael highlighted my positive characteristics from an interviewer’s perspective, this gave me such great confidence"
We worked on the questions and answers and creating real and authentic answers.
I had never considered this approach, it was astonishing, very realistic and made me even more determined to succeed.
What I loved most is that he had undertaken extensive research on the company I was interviewing with, he knew the company, my role, their past, current and future projects and demonstrated exactly what creates a great impression to an employer.
I got my dream job a few days later.

I rejected an offer from one of Canada's most prestigious (top-rated) employers.
Not because the pay was low, not because I was over or under-qualified, and not because I got cold feet, but because (with Michael's training and mentorship) I knew that it wasn't a high enough ceiling for me--particularly with how far I had come in my interviewing/job-search journey. I was about to settle, until I sought after professional guidance, and was referred to 'The Interview'.
I cannot express how glad I am that I did, because two weeks later, I received a much more fitting and lucrative offer, which I accepted (after receiving multiple phone calls from the company I turned down, and negotiations with the company that I accepted). I have learned, working with Michael (among so much I could share), that the difference between taking a mediocre offer and taking the perfect offer was knowing that there was power in my hands and cards to choose from.
This took, strategy, personal value refinement, practice, fine-tuning, the right mindset, and more. All of which, was instilled in me by Michael, whom I owe more than just this testimonial.
Take the wheel of your career aspirations with an experienced mentor--I cannot recommend Michael and 'The Interview' enough!

Thank you, Michael, you have been a great interview coach.
Thank you for always encouraging me to get out of my comfort zone and believing in me.
You have taught me that interviewing is a skill that needs constant practice. You made it easy and comfortable for me to talk and share my doubts and experiences with you.
I promise to continuously push myself and refuse to fail without giving my 100% all the time.
