Get past that initial phone interview with the recruiter and pave the way to a conversation with the hiring manager by testing your message with long-time recruiter and candidate advisor, Sue Kunimune, who will help you craft and practice your most effective message.


When you’re consistently getting invited to participate in phone interviews, but struggle to convert those into conversations with the hiring manager, you’ll want to talk with Sue. She will help you craft your message, then give you time to practice your pitch and re-engage in a mock interview, where you will test the message you have developed.

Sign up for this two-part coaching session which begins with you, what you want and how you are approaching phone interviews today. You’ll discuss what is working and what isn’t as you develop your most effective message to help you get where you want to be. After your call, you’ll have time to practice your new message, on your own, before reconnecting with Sue to practice what you’ve learned. In addition to your conversations, you’ll receive a written evaluation.
