Luke Canning

Compliance Operations Analyst | Novi (cw) at Facebook (Meta)

"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."

Eddy Mehmedovic

Business Dev Lead | Amazon Web Services (AWS)

"Paddy's coaching was a key reason I got my current job at Amazon Web Services. He is an exceptional communicator and has a very professional approach when it comes to coaching, tailoring CVs and conducting interview preparation sessions. Paddy added immense value to my job search. Along with his positive attitude, he went above and beyond his call of duty to help me get the job I wanted at Amazon. I would definitely recommend Paddy and his coaching services."

Danilo Dusoswa

Senior Account Director - Talent Solutions | LinkedIn

"What can I say? Paddy is the real deal. He understands what will get your CV into the hands of hiring managers. His formula is designed to ensure that the company that you are applying for can quickly make a decision to qualify you in or out. He teaches you to remove the fluff and write truthful CV copy that is designed to get you that role that you are looking for. Not only that, but he will teach you how to perform well in interviews. You can be the best person in the world at your job, but if you aren't good at interviews it will be your Achilles heel. Paddy, thank you for all you have done to help me."

Rose McCauley

Permit Coordinator | MSD Ireland / Merck & Co.

"Paddy helped me so much go from my first job to a much more senior position. With Paddy's career services, I landed so many interviews and even had my choice of offers presented to me. Paddy really helped me get ahead in life and I am so grateful. He was always there for me as I progressed into second-stage interviews. He answered all my questions when I really needed help. Thanks so much, I am forever grateful."

Jonathan Hynes

Product Business Partner | TikTok

"I availed of almost every Paddy Jobsman offer. From CV writing service, interview tips and tricks to salary negotiation. I'd also DM'd a couple of times with questions. When I say that I would not be starting my new job on Monday without all of his resources I am not exaggerating. I am going into a job that has almost doubled my salary and benefits. I could not be more thankful and could not recommend Paddy Jobsman more!"
