The experience with Talentroo and Paul has been outstanding... It is rare to find a more genuine and passionate recruiter/coach as Paul. He has the unique ability to listen, give developmental advice, and stay authentic with the core value wanting you as a candidate to shine and succeed. Without a doubt, can I highly recommend Paul and Talentroo!
"Excellent!!! -My interaction with Paul has been exceptional. His skills and knowledge are amazing."
I've failed quite a lot of interviews. I've never thought of lot of things like first impression, value proposition and action plan's role in the interview process.Pål was friendly and delivered me the session very well...
Interviewing with Talentroo was smooth, exciting and a all in all a pleasure.
I had really great impression after using Talentroo service in terms that I have received really good feedback information and general great advises that were very helpful. This service helped me to understand where I was making mistakes during online interview and how to avoid that situation in future.
Their no one factor which gains anyone 5 Star. Their are combination of various elements which brings the best experience. Paul is very professional and made full use of automation meld with timely and professional response...

What will you learn with an interview coach?
The first impression can be a deal-breaker for many interviewers. We will go through what you need to consider, and how to start the meeting.
Sometimes an interviewer's questions can take you by surprise. We will give you some ideas on how to try to best reply to these different and sometimes weird questions.
What not to say
There are things you can say to your friends, and there are things you can say in an interview. What is it ok to talk about, and what is not?
How to talk about you
How do you respond to the "tell me about yourself" question? A very common and overused question, but it is still asked, and easy to get wrong.
How to prepare
Online interview or in person? How you prepare and come prepare differs. We will tell you what you need to consider before the interview starts.
When asked about salary
This is a difficult question and will many times guide the interviewer on what to pay you. We will explain to you what to say to increase your value.
How to follow-up
You should always follow up on the interview. What do you say, and how long after do you follow up? Do you send an email or call? We will guide you.
What questions should you prepare to ask, and when do you ask them? How do you ask followup questions in the middle of the interview?
I will coach you so you will have more confidence going into the interview, help you refine your pitch, and prepare you for the most difficult interview questions.
Meet your coach!
Hi, I am Paul Arnesen, I will be your interview coach.
As someone who now sits on the other side of the table, I can emphasize with you and your worries.
I am now the founder of Talentroo, and my current focus is to be an advocate for the benefits of remote work. As an essential part of remote work is online interviews I have decided to share my skills and knowledge from both being interviewed remotely and from holding 5-10 online interviews weekly. I also conduct regularly remote work career coaching to people looking to build a remote career.
I have an extensive and comprehensive background in HR and have throughout my educational life managed to obtain a master's in HR and organizational psychology. I have also been a manager, an army officer, a sales consultant, and a teacher. I have also been both a co-owner of a digital marketing agency, as well as sole owner of 2 multidisciplinary consultancies. In addition to giving expert advice on HR, I have been hired to work on marketing campaigns, business strategy, and online privacy & data protection.
With my background, I can put on different hats, depending on what roles you are looking for and most likely be interviewed for in your next interview.
I am looking forward to being your coach!
