Interview Coaching Program™
<< back

When you are looking for a job, applying for a promotion, or just launching your career, you know how important it is to communicate your credentials compellingly. This is especially true if you are a candidate for a top position—such as CEO or General Manager—where the stakes are high and the competition keen.

Through our Interview Coaching Program™, we help you get ready for every aspect of the search process—from redesigning your resume, to simulating the interview, to preparing strategic answers to tough questions. You will have three confidential 3-hour sessions with your career advancement as our total focus. Your consultants, Drs. Janet and Neal Larsen Palmer, the founders of CEI, are nationally recognized experts in communication, with a specialization in nonverbal communication. The Palmers can show you how to harness the power of good body language to "sell" yourself skillfully in job interviews.

In three 3-hour sessions, you will:

  • Examine your short- and long-range career plans and develop strategies to achieve them.
  • Redesign your resume for maximum impact.
  • Learn the principles of a persuasive cover letter.
  • Assess your interviewing style through the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator™.
  • Draft a compelling statement to open your interview.
  • Build your personal credibility and charisma in the interview through coaching on your verbal and nonverbal communication, using videotape.
  • Ensure that you will give every opportunity your absolutely best effort!

In the three intensive sessions at our Institute in Southern California, we get to know you as a person and as a professional — your talents, your experience, and your goals. Together we design a program of action to help you meet the challenges of the search. You are also eligible to receive three months of phone and email support from the Palmers, beyond the completion of your Interview Coaching Program™, to refine your resume and other documents and strategize for upcoming job opportunities and interviews.

The fee for the Interview Coaching Program™ is $2,950, which includes three months' job search support by phone and email. Additional coaching and consulting is $350 per hour. For more information, please call the Institute at (800) 410-4CEI (4234) or e-mail us at

What do our clients say about CEI's Interview Coaching Program™?

Thought that you folks should know that I am one of your success stories. The first person I shared my resume with after I visited with the two of you offered me a job. I wasn’t even talking to him about a job, just wanted his opinion on the resume.

Well he offered, and I accepted, a six-figure position as vice president with an international security firm. What can I say, you gave outstanding counsel.

Thanks for the help. It was very much appreciated. A wise investment on my part!

I genuinely appreciated my session with you. I know that I went into that interview with a lot more ease, self-confidence, and poise after my mock interview with you. I really felt very comfortable about the hour that I spent with the interviewer.

Hi Jan and Neal,

I want to thank you for your contribution to my successful promotion to Regional Manager! I appreciate all you did for me. I often recall topics we discussed to help me make a better impression with others in promotional interviews. I use the ideas you taught me daily.

Thank you, Janet. The communications session I had with you and Neal were a big help during my interviews. They were invaluable, and I’ve been talking up CEI whenever appropriate.
