""Bill is highly skilled in his profession and is very quick and thorough with assessing weaknesses and providing solid solutions. Within only a few sessions, he was able to provide me incredible feedback which ultimately helped me shift my interview strategy and tactics and helped me land a dream role with a very reputable firm. Bill is an essential resource...I highly recommend him for anyone seeking mentorship, interview and career coaching."
Amir Zekrya

"One of the things I found most helpful from Bill was his helping me to identify which work stories I was going to use to answer a range of questions that asked me to describe my successes in behavioral type questions. Bill also helped me develop a strong solid message to say at the very end of the interview instead of asking the usual 'what's the next step' type of questions. He is direct, articulate, and phrases his comments in a way that encourages you to try harder. There is an art to giving feedback without people getting defensive and Bill has this down pat!"

Specialized Interview Coaching For Engineering Jobs

We offer specialized, expert interview coaching for engineering jobs. We help you polish your resume and curriculum vitae (CV), answer difficult and tricky questions, tell compelling stories that showcase your strengths, and help you handle any situation that can arise in an interview. We give you feedback and guidance on your vocal skills, eye contact and body language.

If you experience interview anxiety or stage fright we have a state of the art interview psychology training program to teach you mental toughness, poise, and calmness and focus skills so you'll go into your interviews feeling confident.

If you tend to freeze up and go blank, or forget what you wanted to say, we teach you advanced communication techniques that help you gracefully and diplomatically "stall for time" and gain more data while you can think of what to say.

We teach you the art and science of rapport building so you can reduce your discomfort with small talk and have the interviewer like you.

Our collaborative, professional relationship supports, guides and advises you across the full range of the interview process.

We'll show you how to come across to engineering job interviewers as a candidate who will be highly desirable and successful at their organization.

The interview coaching will be conducted by Bill Cole, MS, MA, who is a thought leader in peak performance, coaching, and the mental game. Bill has authored 16 books on interview skills, and is a national media personality on how to put your best foot forward in interviews. Bill's degrees include an MA in counseling psychology, and his memberships include the American College of Sports Medicine and Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology.

When you hire us we become your coach and consultant to help you get the engineering job of your dreams. Bill Cole, MS, MA regularly helps people excel in engineering interviews.

Once you begin coaching with us, we also have numerous specialized engineering interview questions we help you answer in dozens of topic areas.

Frequently Asked Questions About Engineering Interview Coaching

Question: How many hours does this engineering interview coaching take?

Answer: Many other engineering interview coaching programs we have seen require a very large time commitment, upwards of 10-25 hours. However we have found that we work so efficiently that most of our clients need only 4-6 hours with us. Of course we can support you through your entire interview process, at any level of coaching you desire.

Question: I see other coaches charging packages of $2000 to $4000 for engineering interview coaching. Why is it so expensive?

Answer: Interviewing for engineering jobs is expensive in and of itself. The coaching you receive is a very small investment in view of not only the overall value you will receive, but also in comparison to the income you will earn in engineering. Our fees are based only on the coaching you actually receive. You never pay for hours you don't use. Over the course of your coaching time with us, your investment would range from $300-$600 or so.

Question: What aspects of the engineering interview process do you help me with?

Answer: We become your guide for whatever you may need in this process. Some of our services, as part of the coaching and consultation:

  • Resume and CV review and editing
  • Help you improve your profile on LinkedIn
  • Help you craft answers to difficult and sensitive questions
  • Help you improve cover letters
  • Mock interviews
  • Stress management and stage fright control

Installment Or Variable Payments

Note: Normally payments are made using the Credit Card or PayPal buttons in the blue boxes above. However, coaching services payments may be made in installments, by special arrangement. Please contact us for details. To make an installment payment or to make any other payment to William B. Cole Consultants, go to the page for making payments of any amount.

Additional Services

There is no additional charge for reading and responding to reasonable length emails. For emails or attached documents that are longer, any time spent with these activities will be counted as hours in the package you purchased. If the hours exceed the package hours, they will be invoiced weekly.

We can assist you in many other ways in addition to coaching. This is a menu of how you can utilize our expertise to create a robust program of improvement.

  • Reading, reacting to and editing documents.

  • Reviewing videos.

  • Reviewing audios.

  • Creating customized audios.

  • Creating and editing documents.

  • Writing and editing speeches and training materials.

  • Creating and conducting surveys and questionnaires.

  • Creating and conducting 360 degree reviews.

  • Speaking to people you designate, as part of your coaching program.

  • Having us conduct web research, or other research on your behalf.

  • Attending your performances or workplaces, or in the field, observing and debriefing you.

  • Speaking by phone or Skype to debrief you after your performances, while you are still on site, or soon thereafter.

These additional services can be paid for in two ways, which we will ask you to designate before beginning them. They could be counted as part of your existing package hours, or charged as additional services beyond the package, at the hourly rate within the package you purchased. If these services exceed the hours in your package, they will be invoiced the week they are delivered, with payment due at that time.

Travel Expenses For Coaching And Consulting

We handle travel differently for speaking and training versus coaching and consulting. For speaking engagements we can build the travel, hotel and per diem and other expenses into a custom-quoted all-inclusive fee, or itemize these expenses separate from the speaking fee. For this type of engagement, there is no separate per-hour travel fee in addition to the actual travel expenses incurred. You simply cover our actual travel expenses.

For consulting and coaching engagements, we have two tiers of travel fees. When we drive our company car to such an engagement, our hourly travel fee is $100/hour. We charge that because our time is valuable, and while we are driving we are unable to do work or engage in client coaching or consulting. In addition, there is wear and tear and an increase in mileage on the vehicle, and gas and oil expenses. If we travel by air, train or boat, our hourly travel fee is reduced to $50/hour, since we do not incur expenses to our company car.

Travel From Palo Alto, California

Travel time begins when we leave our offices in Palo Alto, California, and ends when we arrive at your door or the door of the place you designate. Travel expenses include: Taxi, shuttle, ferry, subway, train, or any other conveyance, and tolls and parking fees. We fly out of any of three nearby Bay area airports: San Francisco International Airport (SFO), San Jose International Airport (SJC) and Oakland International Airport (OAK).

Travel time is not computed only by distance via an online map service for driving. It's based on time, since once we get near your office we may be searching and waiting for a parking spot, taking another conveyance and walking to your offices. We also may be held up by heavy traffic, road work, detours or traffic accidents. All this time counts towards the total travel time. Travel time is also counted the same way when we return from your office.

Travel, Other Fees And Expenses And Time Frames

Travel, hotel and per diem expenses and fees can be handled in any of these ways: You can book and pay for our travel expenses, we can invoice you, or we can take these expenses and fees off any coaching package you purchase.

We serve our clients far beyond normal 9-5pm Monday-Friday working hours, because our clients work across the US and the globe, and because we often travel to observe and coach our clients as they perform, compete and work. We often work early in the morning, late at night, and on Saturday and Sunday to best meet their needs. Travel fees are due anytime we drive our company car to you or an event for you. When we travel to you or to an event for you by plane, and the plane leaves after 8pm and arrives prior to 6am, there are no travel fees assessed, since we could not be serving other clients at those times. Travel fees are waived if any daily coaching / consulting contract exceeds $4,000.

Our Coaching Sessions Are Guaranteed

I guarantee the quality of our coaching sessions. I guarantee to you that each coaching session will be of the highest quality, and will give you the best cutting-edge content and success strategies. However, I cannot predict, know, monitor or guarantee what you will do with the lessons, insights and content learned in these sessions. Therefore, when you use our coaching, materials and products you are not guaranteed to improve learning, performance, income, health, fitness or specific earnings. No one can guarantee such outcomes because your results will depend on variables and factors outside our control including, but not limited to: your motivation, your diligence and discipline, your capabilities, your creativity, your health and fitness, your compliance with our recommendations and suggestions, and other factors which neither party has control over.

I will ask you, many times in each coaching session, if things make sense, and if you know how to practice and actually use what we discuss, and what I teach you. At the end of each coaching session, I will ask if that session met your expectations. If you say yes, we will consider that session successful. If you say no, I will spend additional time with you, at no additional charge, at that time, or at a mutually convenient time, to resolve your concerns. If I cannot resolve your concerns at that time, I will refund all your monies paid for that particular coaching session in question. If this coaching session in question was part of a package, when you receive a refund for that session, we will also refund the rest of your unused coaching package monies. This will be prorated per the package you purchased, not at the full non-package hourly rate. Whenever you make the next coaching package payment that is due or make a pay as you go payment, this indicates that you are satisfied with the coaching up to that point, and that you wish to continue the coaching program.

Our Coaching Is Confidential

Trust forms the core of the coaching relationship. We respect what you say, and will not repeat your material to anyone or to any entity. We maintain your confidentiality and privacy in all communications and we maintain safe and secure written records of your account. We do not disclose that you are a client if you do not want that known.
