INTERVIEW COACHING

INTERVIEW COACHING

You only get ONE first impression. I partner with you to make it the best one possible.

As a highly caffeinated tech career coach, I help Silicon Valley’s top talent land jobs they LOVE. Want to see what’s possible? Keep scrolling.

Once you’re ready to get started, request a consultation to see if working with me is your next best step.

Let me tell you a bit about the clients I serve…

Clients Infographic

And, a few of the places my clients have landed jobs…

Jobs Landed at Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google, Microsoft etc.

Kyle and I have known each other for many years and he still pushes me to get creative and to think outside of the box. He provides honest feedback and has coached me all throughout my job hunt process. I landed a job at a Fortune 500 company, where I leaned on Kyle for his expertise, guidance, and support. He helped build my confidence and prepared me for top interviews.

I would HIGHLY recommend Kyle to anyone who needs additional support through mentoring, coaching, or simply someone trying to figure out their next career steps.”

–KRISTINA CABALLERO

My clients achieve what they never imagined was possible…

  • A project manager with Imposter Syndrome gained the confidence needed to show up confidently in interviews — and landed offers from three Fortune 100 tech companies.
  • Interviewing for the first time in 12 years, a Chief Marketing Officer made it to the final interview round at four hyper-growth startups — and received offers from all four.
  • A technology executive learned to successfully communicate their transferable skills — and landed a diversity & inclusion role at their dream company in Silicon Valley.
  • Following a multi-year career hiatus to care for a family member, a rising executive rediscovered their voice, interviewed with confidence, and landed their target role.

While your results will vary, know they will be anything but ordinary. That’s my promise.

Kyle is very professional and absolutely pleasant to work with.

As a non-native English speaker, Kyle helped me polish my resume and prepare the job interview. I got my job offer after two sessions with Kyle. He is also very responsive and makes sure that I have every question answered. I would recommend Kyle to anyone who’s so close to their dream job.”

—ELLIE CHANG

Here are the results you can expect from my interview coaching

You are here because you want to improve your interview skills. You want to make the best first impression possible. You want to find a job you LOVE.

As an interview coach specializing in high tech and Silicon Valley, I harness the power of coaching to help you rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career stories.

I will teach you the proven interview methods that have landed my clients jobs at nearly every Fortune 500 company you can name.

The results? Caffeinated stores. Increased confidence. Interview jitters eliminated. More job offers.

Kyle provided career advice and coaching throughout my most recent career transition and interview process which resulted in my landing a job more in alignment for my skillset and long-term career goals. Kyle was readily available throughout the 3 week long process.

He provided tools and timely, critical, feedback which enabled me to leverage my position throughout the interview process and negotiation which ultimately resulted in my success.”

–BRANDON SAPSARA

My coaching philosophy and approach…

  • While it may not seem like it at the moment, there is value in being stuck. I help you rethink, reimagine, and recreate your career stories.
  • At least 99% of the answers to your questions lie within you. As your coach, my role is to help pull those answers out of you, even when they seem unreachable.
  • Deep, moving questions are one of the most powerful tools available to help you get unstuck, own your fabulousness, and achieve what you never imagined was possible.
  • No two people are the same. You deserve a bespoke experience and deep insights that you cannot find anywhere else.
  • You are fabulous. The world deserves to know how fabulous you are and experience the gifts that only YOU have to offer.

Kyle was exactly what I needed when I needed it.

I had a goal to change jobs and I was having mediocre success at getting attention and landing interviews but it wasn’t for jobs that really interested me. Then I started working with Kyle and the opportunities just started rolling in. I left each session with him with action items and full of positivity. Following his methods I landed multiple interviews. I went from not really knowing what I wanted, to knowing exactly what I wanted and obtaining it. I highly recommend investing in yourself and working with him!”

—CHARLOTTE SHIMKO

How I partner with you to make the best first impression possible…

As you review the following interview coaching packages, remember that a great first impression can be the difference between landing a job you LOVE and getting rejected. I partner with you to make your first impression the best one possible.

While plenty of interview coaches offer mock interviews, I instead offer a bespoke coaching experience you cannot find anywhere else — I harness the power of coaching to help you own your fabulousness, rethink and recreate your career story, and confidently walk into interviews.

Additionally, I work with a very limited number of interview coaching clients at a time. My clients achieve the impossible because I am deeply committed to their success and their happiness. As a result, my coaching practice is application-only. I often have a waiting list for new interview coaching clients.

Note that my typical client makes six- or seven-figures and loses at least $3,750+ every week when they are unemployed; this does not include health insurance and other benefits.

When you take into account the $25,000 to $60,000+ salary increases my clients often receive with their new job offers, your package is a small investment that will pay for itself many times over. Also, many of my clients receive $10,000 to $100,000+ sign-on bonuses (plus stock options) with their new jobs.

And, if you are considering an interview coach you found online, I encourage you to read this article I wrote for Forbes on how to vet top interview coach lists and the interview coaches on them as well as this article on questions to ask when looking for an interview coach.

I had a fantastic experience partnering with Kyle.

I reached out to Kyle to specifically help me prepare for in-person interviews. I didn’t expect him to serve as a much-needed resource throughout the entire recruiting process! Kyle was easily accessible via text and e-mail at any time. Kyle gave me confidence and made me see my worth. There is no way I could have made it through the recruiting process with such a good offer on the table without him!”

Additional Coaching Session

I enjoyed working with Kyle. He was very helpful with my preparation for my interviews. He assisted me in crafting powerful stories so that I could stand out better as a candidate. He pushed me to identify what sets me apart from other candidates and how to show how fabulous I am. He encouraged me to demonstrate what I did, what was my impact, how I could add value to the organization, and to tie it back to the role. He was very responsive anytime I reached out with questions or needed some advice regarding my interviews, which I greatly appreciated it.

He brought a positive attitude, which was very welcome during a stressful job search process.”

I haven’t interviewed in 5, 10, 20+ years. Can you help me?

Absolutely! You’re in the right place. Many of my clients are senior managers and executives who have not interviewed in a decade or more.

My Zone of Genius is helping you rethink, reimagine, and recreate how you share your career stories. I partner with you to increase your confidence, eliminate your interview jitters, and get you more job offers.
