I would just like to provide you with some feedback on the interview coaching session I had with John.
I thought it was practical and useful, particularly for someone like me who is quite introverted and struggles in an interview setting.
I received lots of good tips, things that I had not considered before. And I am sure that having this session helped me in the interview I had the following week, as I have been offered the job!
Thank you so much for all your help and to John for sharing his knowledge with me."
