"Paddy coached me to land my current role. We worked on interview preparation and role-played various interview scenarios and potential questions. He also introduced me to a number of highly effective techniques for building my interview confidence. I had failed previously in landing a new role and decided to go to Paddy for advice. This advice changed how I see and approach job interviews. I would highly recommend his career coaching services."
