In this upbeat and inviting class of digestible bits & tips (sprinkled with a little fun!), we’ll go over some important insights to support you, on personal and practical levels, to be effective, memorable, and clearly communicate your skills and value in a job interview.
A sample of past clients and class participants feedback about me as an instructor and coach:
“The best part of the presentation was her (presenter’s) personality; she was fun and grabbed attention; focused, and knowledgeable” and “(she was) interesting and informative” and “ helpful information and sincere enthusiasm; the content was important and the rest was refreshing” and “Thank you, it was fun and worth my time.”
-various in-person Interview Skills & Practice workshop participants
One interview coaching client said: “Shannon’s expertise and experience gave me the preparation necessary to give a strong interview and I ended up receiving a job offer. I would definitely recommend her services in preparing for an interview, reviewing/writing a resume or assistance with cover letters.”
Lauren, Special Agent Recruit, FBI, Florida
“Shannon’s fantastic! I had already used other interview coaches. Shannon is WAY better!! I’ve known Shannon for over 7 years and have used her services on numerous occasions. When I walk into an interview, I’m confident because thanks to Shannon, I’m prepared!!”
Sonia, Account & Operations Management and Project Manager
This course is geared toward: You? If so, you are probably an early to mid-level professional with at least some experience interviewing already.
You’re probably already a knowledgeable, talented contributor (or I can help you realize that you are!) You just need some insider’s ideas on how to show employers this so you stand out – and maybe some encouragement!
Most likely, you are interested in working for a small to mid-sized organization (business, non-profit, creative, teaching and other fields) However, this is for anyone that feels drawn to it. All are welcome!

As a hiring manager friend of mine said, “Not everyone I interview does this, but, I believe I’ve hired every one that did!”
