I came away re-energised

Want to say a special thanks for such an amazing two hours spent together. I came away re-energised. You're a really outstanding professional and I'm thrilled we got to spend time together.

It was an excellent experience...

It was an excellent experience. H-Training gave me the confidence in my self to prepare for interviews. The step by step interview preparation really boosted my confidence before going into the interview, and put my mind at ease

Conor Tierney

In just a couple hours I went from nervous and unsure to confident and composed...

Rarely am I wowed, but this guy clearly had a skill and passion for what he does. I had taken a non-traditional path to my career, and I knew this was going to be a huge barrier for me. Ciaran turned this into a positive, incorporating it into my “edge”–what I could offer that was unique and invaluable–and it went off without a hitch! The one thing that I thought would sink me actually seemed to impress them. Ciaran not only helped me answer those difficult questions, he somehow managed to send me in confident, composed, and prepared…a much more difficult challenge!

In just a couple hours I went from nervous and unsure to confident and composed. An interview is a performance, and I feel I stepped into that room as prepared as I could possibly be. My coaching session gave me a structured and planned approach to the interview so I could coherently communicate the message I wanted to convey. Not once did I feel out of my depth or at a loss for words.
