Interview Coaching

If you have an interview scheduled with a potential employer, this is a great sign! Congrats! If you just starting your job search, you surely expect to be invited to some interviews shortly as well.

Don't sweat it! We are here to help you prepare so that you can perform as best you can when the day comes!

Typically, an interview implies that your resume got you through the first round, and that you fit the overall profile the employer is looking for. The interview is your opportunity to shine! This step often makes candidates nervous, especially if this not something that you do very often. If this rings true to you, rest assured that you are not alone feeling this way.

Our proposed approach is meant to break the ice with you. Our objective is to help you get your feet wet, get comfortable with the context of an interview, start preparing some key answers, coach you in articulating these well, and build your overall confidence towards the interview process. The best part? We are doing so in a non-judgemental environment, with the goal of providing you reinforcement and constructive feedback.

We believe in you, and we want to help you do the same before your next interview. Confidence goes a long way! Grab the bull by the horns!

Contact us today to discuss how we can help you.


We believe that a good coach goes beyond traditional certifications. In fact, we believe that experience and charisma play a big role in whether an interview coach can have a positive impact on your preparedness, confidence and skills.

InterViews is an online interview simulation tool, exclusive to Profilia.

Used on its own or combined to our interview coaching services, it allows candidates to practice answering custom interview questions from the comfort of their own home, before reviewing and submitting recordings of their performance for constructive feedback. All you need is a computer, a webcam, and the desire to improve your interview skills.

How it works

InterViews is a cognitive intelligence application that allows you to practice verbal and non-verbal communication exercises, with real-life settings. The online interview guide is configured for each candidate, according to defined target job requirements. Candidates then respond to the questions on screen via their webcam, with the possibility of watching their own performance and rerecording on multiple occasions, until satisfied with the result.

Once recordings are complete, results are analyzed directly by our platform and/or by an interview coach, precisely pointing out areas of improvement and providing personalized recommendations for future interview success. Communication performance analysis includes sentiment, volume, pronunciation, facial expression, word selection and message clarity.
