“After being out of work for six months I was stressed and eager to do well in my interview. I was pleasantly surprised that Emma Barnett showed me how to relax and how to switch my brain into thinking mode. I think it really helped me. I felt prepared for anything. Also doing an interview role play the night before my interview, I had all my answers fresh in my head. The interviewers were very impressed with me and I was offered the job”!
