Why we do what we do

Our Mission

Interviewing for a job is a draining experience for many candidates. The sixty minutes that an average employment interview lasts determine whether an applicant gets an offer or not. Having convincing answers to interview questions and being confident is crucial for getting the offer.

The problem is: The interview preparation process can be time-consuming and frustrating. There are thousands of resources like books, videos, blogs, articles and lists with potential interview questions. Identifying what is relevant takes time, and often candidates are left with a lot of theory and well-intended general advice, but without any concrete outcomes they can use in their upcoming interview.

Because of this, many applicants don’t get the job they want. They simply don’t convince the hiring manager during the interview – even though they are qualified for the job.

At Interview Preparation Simplified, our mission is to help candidates – ensuring they can prepare for their interview in a better way so that they are ready to ace the interview.
