    This next piece is a separate question. Rather than put it in as a separate
    questions I suggest that we change it to the italics piece below and put in in
    at the end of question “When should I get in touch?”

    My CV or Application Form is already submitted. Is it too late to get in
    touch for Interview Preparation?

    We prefer to talk to you before you submit the form, but its never too late to
    get in touch.

    How do I contact Innovate-Together?

    You can contact us on the Contact form on the website or by email info@innovate-together.com or by phone. We will endeavour to get back to you within 48 hours.

    What is the process?

    You can contact us at any stage of the process. In general terms the process is as follows: Ideally, preparation for a role should start with coaching some months before a competition is advertised. This is particularly important for mid-level and senior roles. We suggest at least two coaching sessions during this time.

     

    When the job you are interested in is advertised, contact us as soon as possible so that we can guide you on your CV or application form preparation. The amount of time required here will depend on the level of the role and the quality of your existing CV. For some roles, a recorded video interview is required to shortlist candidates. For other roles shortlisting is completed based on the quality of the CV or application form and criteria determined by the employer.

     

    Interview preparation can be undertaken in one or more sessions. The amount of time required depends very much on the level of the role. It is very much an iterative process and involves understanding the role and the competencies as well as building your confidence and agility for the interview.

     

    Some roles require a second interview. Very often this includes the candidate making a presentation followed by questions and answers and a second interview. When you are successful, we also can provide initial coaching to get you up and running in your new role,

    The important thing is that we have a flexible approach to working with you regardless of what stage of the process you engage with us.

    When should I get in touch?

    It very much depends on what you want to do. If you are looking for a coach or mentor, then why not get in touch today. It is never too early or too late. We often advise that if there is a role that may happen in six months of a years’ time, now is the time to get in touch and start the preparatory work

     

    If there is a particular role that has just been advertised, get in touch as soon as early as possible. The more time you have to prepare, the better. It is particularly important to make sure your CV or Application Form is of the highest standard as many organisations short list based on your initial application.
