Hiring Process

Interviewing for a new job and negotiating a contract can both be confusing and nerve-racking experiences.

 

Meeting a bunch of strangers (online) who ask you a million questions while holding the cards to decide if you get the job you want and need. You have to make sure to leave a good impression and to show you are the right candidate for the position. Even after the decision is made to hire you there is still the question: “How much should we pay you?” without a satisfying answer. Sounds familiar? ​

 

After a number of rejections and bad deals we begin to doubt ourselves and start to get unsure if we are even good enough for the position and should be paid this amount. We fall prey to our own judgement and lose confidence.

 

No worries about the negotiation tiger - he's just moaning!

 

Personal Review

& strategy

Together we look into your interview and negotiation style to find the parts that make you unique and isolate the ones that are holding you back to assure you shine the right light on your experiences, skills and personality. At the same time we boost your confidence so you can express what you really mean, enjoy the process and arrive at your professional and financial goals.

Practice Makes perfect

Online interviews and negotiations make sure you can practice these skills and receive feedback where you stand and how you can improve. This builds confidence for your next interview and negotiation.

 

The sessions will also be recorded so you can see your own performance and learn from it.

Great Interviews and Negotiation made my career!

I didn't always work in mid to big sized studios. I used to work in the IT department of a small Animation Studio. They even declined my first application but then hired me anyway since they needed someone quickly. After that it became a guessing game of how I performed in a particular interview. They weren’t bad but also far from great. The same applied for the offers I got: I never seem to know what to do when it came to the actual negotiation part - if there was even one.

 

What could you do?

 

I decided to learn anything there was to learn about the interview and negotiation process and to apply my newly learned knowledge to future hirings; and slowly I saw success. First my interviews went much smoother, there was less anxiety, more laughter and more offers afterwards. Next I was starting to negotiate my contracts and see more possibilities. Until I got to a level where my last 3 leads told me later that the company paid me as much as them. That was a shock to me since I was just practising what I’ve learned.

 

In the last few years I managed to have successful interviews and negotiations with Weta Digital, Framestore, Mackevision, ArtFx, CGMA and many more. Which led me to a path of sharing what I’ve learned so others ​can benefit and get back what they deserve.

 

Let us move forward together!

    With Alex's assistance, I was able to transform my Résumé/CV as well as gain crucial feedback on my Cover Letter to enhance my job application. Everything Alex suggested was backed up with compelling justification and as a graduate I look forward to seeing the results from the edge I have gained from his mentorship.

    Alexander has provided invaluable info on how to find the right landing spot into the film industry. He is part strategist, part thought provoker, honest and straightforward. His knowledge about the industry indicates when and how to invoke the various skills are needed to bring out a clarity of purpose and desire that is often hard to pinpoint on your own. He has a way of make questioning about your own thoughts, he is able to focus them in a way that adds meaningful direction.
