Success is when opportunity meets preparation. Be prepared for your next interview and you’ll succeed by training with Barry Drexler, the Expert Interview Coach.
Barry has held executive Human Resources roles at major corporations, including Vice President of HR at Lloyds Banking Group, Vice President of HR at Lehman Brothers, and HR Manager at Towers Watson. He has interviewed and hired thousands of candidates during 30 years in Human Resources and knows from the inside what it takes to get hired.
There are many challenges to landing a great job and career. Getting the interview and being chosen over other candidates is the most challening of all. However, most candidates will be unprepared, and few will practice, rehearse and receive coaching. The candidates that are prepared to demonstrate how they will add value and fit in, are the ones that get hired.
Interviewing is a skill that can be learned and perfected.
Train with Barry and you'll learn how to set yourself apart from other candidates and turn your next interview into a successful job offer.
Get started by choosing a coaching program that fits your needs. Each program includes a free consultation to review your resume, your background and your target jobs to design a training program that's tailored to your career and industry.
