Innovate Together is one of the worlds best kept secrets. A senior colleague told me about Clare. I had gone to other people and I was still struggling to make it through interviews. Clare pared everything back to basics and made sure I knew everything about the role I was going for. She challenged me and recommended reading material for areas that I was not confident in. Through our discussion, I remembered situations that I had totally forgotten. I was able to translate those situations into really strong relevant examples. I could feel myself growing into the role during our discussions. The thought process she brought me through was really useful and better than any course I have ever done. It was like two years learning in four hours. Working with Clare brought me to a new level. I got the job after two rounds of challenging interviews and a presentation.
As a teacher with aspirations to advance myself in my teaching career, I have previously used the services of a number of Interview Preparation Advisors. The fit never seemed quiet right until I met Clare from Innovate Together! Clare O’Sullivan’s outstanding characteristic is that she cares about, and has an in-depth understanding of people. Within minutes of meeting Clare, I immediately felt at ease and in extremely competent hands. She expertly and calmly led me through the intricacies of interview preparation, laced with practical wisdom and common sense advice. Clare’s magical skill is that she somehow manages to get inside her client’s head and soothe their insecurities. A session with Clare left me feeling calm, clear and organised about what I had to do to properly prepare for the interview at hand. I got the job that I really wanted! I cannot recommend Clare highly enough.

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.

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,
