Active Interviewing™ blows away the interviewers:

“The interviews went fantastic. The interview presentation blew them all away! The last one with Juan, he stopped me half way through it and said. “ok, you’ve got the job, now tell me who ‘you’ are”. I start next week but spent all of last week at their sales conference in Annapolis. I can’t thank you enough for your assistance on this. I will be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for a job.”

Active Interviewing™ results in the most professional interview ever experienced at the company:

“This is an unsolicited letter of appreciation for the career guidance and professional presentation services provided by you and Innovative Career Services. The pre-interview planning and the timeliness in which you produced the presentation were outstanding. Your ability to speak with me and determine all of the key points that needed to be included in the presentation were precise and extremely helpful during the actual interview.

As the interview concluded the members of the three panel committee that I interviewed with, all agreed on one point.  The presentation they had just seen and heard was the most professional they had experienced during an interview. The final question of the interview by the panel was “How much is it going to cost us to get you?” I accepted the position with this company as a mid-level manager with a generous six figure salary and all the perks.

Eric, I have already recommended your services to other professionals that may need your services while preparing to interview for an executive position. The confidence that I developed while practicing the presentation was unflappable. The information the presentation provided to the prospective employer spelled out in simple terms that I was the ideal candidate for the position. I am willing to recommend you and your services to anyone. Thank you again, and as I said after our first phone conversation. “I am extremely happy that we had an opportunity to speak”.

Active Interviewing™makes candidate far superior and more professional than any other candidate:

"I received positive and quick feedback from an interviewer that my materials—the interview presentation--was far superior and more professional than anything the other candidates were using during their interviews. I believe using the presentation as a discussion tool and leave-behind was instrumental in securing my current position."
