What will you learn with an interview coach?

First Impression

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.

Curveball questions

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.

Asking questions

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.

I have been involved in recruitment and selection for more than a decade now. In terms of having been on the other side of the interview many times, I know how difficult it is to fail. The feeling of leaving the room after an interview and knowing that what just happened in there will never be repeated. "Why did I say that - what did they mean with that question - I should have prepared better".

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!
