After only a few short sessions working with Bill and Diane at Winnerviewer, my confidence to represent myself well in an interview increased tenfold as well as launching my job search once again in a strategic direction. I gained invaluable interviewing skills and the ability to market and leverage my strengths, which are tools I will use for a lifetime. I am truly grateful for consulting with them!
I highly recommend Bill Markham as a career coach. I specifically hired him to prepare me for some high stakes interviews. Bill coached me to perform at a much higher level. I really like his method of creating a ‘real interviewing environment’ to practice. Bill has conducted thousands of interviews and worked as a Sales Professional and Manager in his entire career. His experience really shows up in his coaching. I landed a great position and I know I showed up strong in the interview because of Bill's coaching. He has a no-nonsense approach that will get results. If you want someone to help you get to the next level spend some money with Bill. You will interview better without question."
I’ve always believed there is no “I” in team so I wanted to reach out and say thanks for helping me have the best interview I’ve had “search to date”. Yes, I studied and took 10 hours to prepare for a one hour phone interview so I did my part but you were on my shoulder.
Specifically, one of the keys today was being prepared with 6 personal stories that were in SAR (Situation, Action, and Result) format. I was asked 3 questions that specifically allowed me to use 3 of the SAR stories and I was thrilled. I was asked one question that I hadn’t prepared a story for and I winged it and my answer was not nearly as effective. I now have experienced the confidence and positive attitude brings in that kind of preparation. Thank you Bill for your presentation to ACT and your coaching to our group!
Dynamic, motivated, upbeat, honest. Bill is all of these. He lives in the solution. His enthusiasm is contagious. His wealth of knowledge and experience coupled with his built-in passion for helping others makes him a valuable asset to any organization and to anyone he comes in contact with. I recommend you Go Bill!”
I didn't know what I was getting into by signing up with a job coach and I was cautiously optimistic. In fact, I was skeptical and did not know if I could afford the service. To my surprise, it was affordable and I was very comfortable speaking to him over the phone and working 'hand in hand' (so to speak) with Bill even though I was over 1,800 miles away in Ohio and he was based in Arizona.
His knowledge on what an interviewer looks for in a resume and cover letters coupled with speaking to a well written resume type of skills I had to develop plus preparation for an interview using the S.T.A.R.B. method; along with his optimistic attitude provided me the insight to put my life and then a job opportunity into perspective. Whew... yes, all of these attributes plus a lot of hard work on my part helped me land an interview. I was a better person working with him and proud to say (with tears in my eyes) that God brought Bill to me and my family for that I am grateful. He strengthened both my professional and spiritual lives and I will remember him in my thoughts and prayers. I highly recommend job seekers like myself to get in touch with Bill and with an open mind (and heart) let him help and provide the knowledge of what 'works' in the industry to land an interview and eventually a new job.

I want to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication which you provided throughout my recent job search. If it weren't for your daily calls, emails, follow-ups, and encouragement I would not have landed my new job. I appreciate all the steps that you walked me through in order for me to become a more confident and successful job seeker. The daily tasks you encouraged me to follow, including goal setting, resume and cover letter editing, and interview preparation were truly helpful.
Once again, thank you for sharing your experience and expertise, your skills resulted in a dream position for me!
Bill is an "authentic" leader. Bill has often volunteered his great talents to coach my students in the skill of interviewing. When Bill comes into my University Marketing classes, students are on the edge of their desk chairs! Bill knows talent, and how to recruit "the best" for pharmaceutical and biotech companies."
