I was advised by a friend to schedule a coaching session prior to my interview to get prepared. As I always I was focusing on studying the content of my interview rather than on preparing myself mentally. However, as Ashraf reminded me of it during the coaching session, the impression we make during an interview is mostly based on the energy we diffuse, on the way we move and talk and on the intensity of our motivation. In only one hour, Ashraf made me practice talking about non-technical topics to let me express my enthusiasm, to show my confidence and to develop my assertiveness. I know for sure that it had a major impact on my mindset going into the interview. Thanks to this powerful coaching session, I kept fighting during this extremely challenging interview… And got the job offer months later!
