What if you knew you’d get the job?

What if I told you that you could walk into any job interview knowing exactly what to say, how to expertly sell yourself, and get the salary you’re worth?

Hi, I’m Pamela Skillings, Interview Coach, Career Counselor, and Co-Founder of Big Interview.

I started on my journey into career coaching to help people get jobs–and I have. I’ve helped thousands of clients from all walks of life land their dream jobs, regardless of their circumstances.

As much as I love my work as a career coach, I realized that not everyone has the resources to hire a private career counselor.

That’s why I created Big Interview, an affordable, comprehensive job interview training software that offers the exact same knowledge and preparation I offer my elite private coaching clients for a fraction of the price.

The Truth Is, Most People Fail Their Interviews

Here are some sobering statistics to consider about job interviews:

47% of candidates fail the interview because they don’t know enough about the company they applied to.

67% of interviewees struggle to make eye contact.

39% of candidates get rejected due to body language that displays a lack of confidence.

10% of candidates get rejected for bad handshakes.

76% of resume rejections are the result of unprofessional email addresses or online presence.

Advice like:

  • Turn a weakness into a positive when they ask you about areas to improve.
  • Ask if they have any concerns about your resume at the end of the interview.
  • Hold your questions until the end of the interview.
  • Just be yourself.

All of this sounds very reasonable, but there are many reasons why it just doesn’t work.

With so much on the line, no preparation, and bad advice, it really isn’t that surprising that these statistics are so high.

This is why I created Big Interview.

Big Interview is a simple software that prepares any job seeker from any walk of life for their next interview.

No matter your industry.

No matter your experience level.

No matter how many job interviews have gone up in flames behind you.

I designed Big Interview specifically for any job seeker who struggles with all of the common pitfalls of job interviewing.

I’ve seen thousands of clients go from completely tanking their interviews to winning dream jobs at Fortune 500 Companies.

And I want this for you too. Because I’ve seen it’s possible.

Even if the position you want is ultra-competitive

Even if you can’t win an initial phone interview

Even if you only have 1 day to prepare

My DREAM COMPANY hired me!

“I was interviewed by Amazon 3 times and I prepared for the interviews with Big Interview. I must say you have done a great job, you taught me a simple yet a solid framework! I NEVER email companies like this, but this time I forced myself to email you as I got the job at Amazon with an amazing offer.”

The Part That No One Talks About

Clearly preparing for your interview is really important to be successful at getting a job. Yet very little (if any) time is spent on it by the average job seeker.

Isn’t it funny how much time and effort we put into getting an education, joining clubs, working internships, volunteering, all to get a perfect resume, yet no time is spent on learning the skills that will make the biggest difference?

You could have been the best student, the best intern, the most productive at your former job, the first one to show up on Monday and the last one to leave on Friday, but if you can’t interview well, none of that will matter.

  • You may be a skilled project manager with creative and innovative ideas, but if you can’t sell yourself, how will your interviewer know?
  • You may have always been valued as an excellent communicator on your work teams, but if you can’t keep your interview answers concise, the hiring manager will believe you’re a rambler.
  • You may be dedicated to career development and self-improvement, but if you tank interview questions about your weaknesses, your interviewer will think you’ve got something to hide.

Simply having all of the skills and qualifications isn’t enough–you’ve got to learn to sell them.

And in order to learn to sell them, you’ve got to practice.

“Why Would I Practice for a Job Interview? Isn’t That Weird?”

It may sound strange to you because you likely don’t know anyone who practices their interview skills. Even more likely, you’ve probably never been taught that it’s even a thing.

People who practice interviewing see results.

Specifically, people who have practiced with Big Interview have:

  • Shaved months off of their job searches
  • Never been caught off guard by an interview question
  • Gained confidence in their abilities
  • Landed their dream jobs

We’re often too quick to label ourselves. We think of ourselves as “an introvert” a “tech nerd,” or “socially awkward.”

These labels you give yourself are holding you back from getting all that you can out of your career.

The truth is, anyone can be amazing at interviewing. No matter the label you’ve given yourself. Nothing is standing in the way of you and all of your dreams except your beliefs about yourself.

In my time as a career coach, I’ve encountered 3 beliefs that tend to hold candidates back.

Belief #1: Some people naturally have “it” and some people don’t

The Truth: It’s true that being talkative and extroverted may come more naturally to some people than others, but being extroverted is only one type of social strength. You can learn to use your own gifts and personality to sell yourself confidently even if you aren’t naturally “salesy” or “showy.” The bottom line is you don’t have to be–you can be fully yourself and win jobs, you just have to learn how to show off your particular strengths.

Belief #2: Interviewing is easy for most people

The Truth: This is a belief that can make job seekers who are struggling with the interview process feel a lot of shame about themselves. The truth is this is not easy for anyone. The job interview is one of the weirdest conversations you’ll ever have in your life and you are in no way a loser or somehow behind the crowd if you’ve been finding it difficult

Belief #3: My failure is my fault

The Truth: No one taught you how to do this. How can not knowing something you were never taught be your fault? What is in your control is where you go from here. It’s not your fault that you’re struggling with interviews, but it is your responsibility to do something about it.

Picture this…

Situation A

You start your day already wired from a restless night of sleep and make a quick “Job interview today- wish me luck!” post on social media. The radio is turned off during the commute — instead, you’re totally tuned in to all the nervous self-talk in your head (“What if they ask about that gap in my resume? Are there going to be other people there waiting to interview for the same job? Awkward!”). Before leaving the car, you pause for a couple of deep breaths… but the momentary sense of calm is probably gone as soon as you’ve set foot into this new, unfamiliar building.

Once you’re finally called in for the interview, you smile through the nerves, but are only half present — busily analyzing everything you say and noticing small details in the room while speaking. Maybe at some point you’re caught off-guard by an unexpected question and stumble over your words while searching for an answer. Or you totally forget to mention how you spearheaded an incredible project that tripled sales at your last company.

Your nerves disappear as you leave, but you also have no idea how that interview went! The feeling is markedly better than the potentially dangerous heart rate you had an hour ago, but you don’t necessarily feel any closer to your dream job or the new career you were looking forward to.

Situation B

You wake up with all the confidence of an army general who not only just read “The Art of War”, but also saw the enemy’s entire battle plan. You know exactly how the day ahead of you is going to go — you’ve planned and prepared for this thoroughly. The email you got last night from Big Interview with a “Pre-Interview Checklist” and last-minute resources gave you an easy night’s sleep. Today, you take a huge stride towards reaching your full potential.

The confidence doesn’t come from just knowing exactly what questions the interviewers will ask, and the best ways to answer each — you’ve also discovered exactly what makes you a star candidate. You know the unique skills and traits you have that will get hiring managers dying to hire you. You feel like a million bucks.

The interview itself goes smoothly. After all, you’ve prepared, practiced, and refined these answers. You even put yourself through much more stressful situations and difficult questions while practicing. At this point, it all feels easy.

You head home with full confidence that the interview went incredibly well and you did everything within your power to prepare and show off your strengths. You are operating at the top of your game.

You can take complete control of your interview experience and give yourself the best possible chance of success.

I have included everything you will need to know inside Big Interview to be absolutely 100% prepared on interview day.

All that’s left is for you to think about what kind of interview experience you want to have.

I’ll be honest, it will take some effort on your part. It will take the desire to invest in yourself and sit down for 15-20 minutes a day to learn this new skill.

Big Interview probably IS NOT for you if:

  • You are looking for a magic quick-fix to transform your interview skills with no effort
  •  You are looking to mislead hiring managers and lie during your job interview
  •  You have no intention of actually implementing the knowledge I share with you (sorry, I can only do so much–you’ll have to put the time in)
  • You are not determined to get a job (if you are doing this because somebody expects it of you, sorry but we are not the perfect match)

Big Interview will 100% WORK for you if:

  • You are ready to admit to yourself that your previous interviews failed because you weren’t prepared, and you need to change that if you want to get the job of your dreams (or any job, frankly).
  • You feel like you’ve gotten as far as you can on your own and are ready for help to take you the rest of the way to success.
  • You are ready to devote at least 10 minutes a day to improving your interview skills, starting from today.
  • You are ready to study the art behind successful job interviews and willing to practice your ass off until you feel confident with your skills.
  • You are focused on achieving a long-term goal (getting a job!) that will change your life, and you understand there will always be ups and downs, but you can make HUGE gains by taking the right step.
  • You’ve tried a bunch of different approaches to interviewing successfully and haven’t found one that works for YOU yet
