"After being invited to a first stage interview with a US firm, I was very fortunate to have found Paula on LinkedIn to help me prepare.
The preparation tasks she sent over before the coaching session were very useful as all the questions helped me to start thinking about ME and MY skills and what I can bring to the table. I started drawing out my experiences in a subtle manner.
The coaching session was the most valuable experience I have had.
During the coaching session, Paula helped me streamline my responses to potential interview questions. I was actually focusing on answering the questions instead of waffling!
As I don’t have a conventional background and with law being a second career, Paula was brilliant in helping me identify how my previous career consists of strengths which interviewing partners would see as an asset.
I was told by so many that moving from in-house to private practice was impossible as I did not have the right skill set, Paula helped me explain how having trained and qualified in-house would be useful in transitioning into private practice.
Paula shifted my focus and instilled confidence in me and as a result of her advice and guidance I secured a role in an international law firm!
Thank you Paula for your guidance - I will definitely be coming back to you in 12 months when I am looking to make my next move."
