Has anyone here worked with a voice coach to help with interviews? I spoke to an interview coach and she said my biggest issue is that I come across as timid because of my voice and that working with a voice coach would make a world of difference. On the fence about this.

It would help not just with interviews but also conversations with peers, colleagues, clients, audiences, and senior clients and stakeholders. You are investing in the development of your ability to communicate with presence. I would do it.

I agree, if this is something that you want to improve on, why not? Also a major component that comes to mind is presentations not just conversations and how much impact this could make on a decision.

Thanks all! I wasn't keen on spending the money but from the sounds of it it is worth the investment.

Thanks for this!

Have you tried video yourself for a mock interview? Or record an interview if possible? You can playback, and identify one area to practice for improvement, then record yourself again. I did that when I was preparing for a very important presentation and it really helped me to slow down and speak louder and clearer.

I did. Not working for me

Do you ever go through an interview totally prepared and you’re thinking “I am seriously nailing this!” And you leave it feeling super good, but you remember one thing you said that could have been misconstrued, or something you did that was maybe weird, and by the next day you just feel like you completely bombed it?

I'm in final rounds w a large tech company (interview already scheduled), but I saw that the company just removed the job posting I'm applying for on their website. Does this mean they already selected a candidate and I'm wasting my time? Or does it mean they have enough candidate selection for the final round to where if I have an offer, I'm less able to negotiate since the company has a lot of back up candidates. First time leaving consulting so all of this is new to me.
