Interview Immersion

Are you ready to get excited when you have an interview?

Instead of figuring out how to interview again by bombing the first handful, prepare in a way that gets you better results right away while teaching you an approach you can use for a lifetime.

Like most people, I found interviews confusing

Ever feel like an interview went well, but then not get moved on to the next round? Or more rarely, feel like you bombed it and gotten the job? What's happening?!? Is it a mystery? Are they flipping a coin?

Or could there be some sort of method to the madness?

Cristin Downs from Work and Worth Coach here. I'm here to tell you that interviews can make sense! There's a general system you can follow that allows you to show yourself off well, not make any major missteps, and get enough information from the company to see if you even want to work there.

I discovered this system through working over 40 jobs in my over 40 years while also serving in every hiring capacity you can imagine.

Common reasons people have trouble interviewing

They don't know how to talk about their work

Beyond bar or coffee shop tirades, most people don't know how to talk about their work. What's important and what's not? What would make the most sense to tell this particular interviewer, for this job, at this company? Since most people don't know, they include irrelevant points, and don't include what would really move the needle.

They aren't sure what an interviewer is getting at with certain questions

Why do interviewers ask you for your greatest weakness? Do they expect you to tell the truth (No, they don't!). How are you supposed to answer "Tell me about yourself." Is it one of life's greatest mysteries? Some questions seem like a trick; others seem like it would be great to answer well and matter, but how do you do that, exactly?

They don't know how to get information they need from the interviewer without asking directly

Everyone wants to know what a company's culture is, what the work/life balance is like, how do folks like working there, and more. So how do you find out? Just ask them? Do the interviewers tell the truth? That seems somewhat unlikely if the culture is bad, doesn't it? How else are you supposed to find out? Glassdoor?

So, I was hesitant to have an executive coach from the get-go and thought I had all the answers. I was getting interviews left and right, but after 14 years of not having been the interviewee, there was a skillset I needed to dust off. Well, my wife decided to sign me up for Cristin’s services, it was decided that I’d give it a go! I never do anything less than 100% effort, and this wouldn’t be any different. I had four interviews within two and a half weeks – so its time to polish off my interview techniques and get back to that grindstone. Well, Cristin immediately impressed me with her knowledge, responsiveness, openness and dedication to me as a client. Her insight into what I was doing correctly, and what I could improve was key. I loved working with Cristin and would highly recommend her to anyone having issues from deciding what path they want from life all the way to polishing off those squeaky interview responses.

Everything with Cristin was natural; it flowed like we’d been friends for years. The feedback I was getting was critical and within a short period of time proved to be more beneficial than I can express. She was a stranger. Now, she’s my go-to. If there’s anyone on the fence – take my advice – make that leap. Sign up!

This course will teach you the exact system *I* used myself for interviews that I have now walked 300+ clients through

This system has walked hundreds of clients through over a thousand interviews, from recruiters to hiring managers, from projects to panels. Many of my clients haven't interviewed in over 10 years, and so they need not just interview preparation but also an introduction to modern interview formatting and remote interviewing.

Weaving together traditional interview advice and my personal approach, I include what to cover and what to avoid, ways to respond to common interview questions, how to use the STAR method on behavioral questions, and how to prepare for the interview you just got!

So... how will Interview Immersion impact you?

Before you complete this course:

You're having a hard time talking about your work, let alone framing it in a way that makes you sound like the kind of candidate a company wants to hire
You don't know what to ask the interviewer, either to sound interesting but also to get enough information to know if you even want to work here
You're not moving on to the next interview round, and you're not sure what's happening

Jennifer Irwin's Headshot

After I started working with Cristin, the interview requests came rolling in. And even though I hadn’t been on an interview in 10 years, I felt confident and prepared on interviews, thanks to Cristin. While job hunting is rarely considered fun, Cristin makes the whole process exciting and enjoyable. Working with Cristin is like working with an expert, coach, friend, and cheerleader all in one.

In the end, I accepted a fully-remote position, above my target salary range, doing work that I enjoy and wanted to do more of – all the major points I had hoped for but didn’t think would be possible.

Hear from more folks just like you

From teachers to performers to nurses to marketers and more, I have worked with 300+ folks on their job search and can't wait for the next 300. Hear what a small section of folks had to say about my work here.

Thanks to Cristin, the process was quick and actually fun.

After owning my own business for the last 5 years, I made the decision to re-enter the corporate world. I had a lot of work to get ready for this process…or so I thought. Cristin held my hand through the interview process and acted as my cheerleader the whole time. Had I not decided to work with Cristin, I would probably still be putting in multiple applications and hoping for a callback. Thanks to her, the process was quick and actually fun. I landed the perfect job for my skill set. Both I and my family are very grateful for Cristin.

My personal 15-day no questions asked refund policy


Buying anything like this feels so risky. What if I am a charlatan?

Or maybe you aren't 100% confident that you personally are going to do the work.

Or maybe you do the work and you're just not vibing on my approach to the work.

All are possible, and that's why I give a no questions asked refund within 15 days of purchase. Just email me at support@workandworthcoach.com and let me know you want a refund, and I'll process it within 48 hours. It can then take 7-10 business days to appear on your bank account (banks 🤷🏼 amirite?).

I always appreciate that you tested out my small business, even if it didn't work out.

I created this course for YOU!

This is PERFECT for you:

If you haven't interviewed in a long time and want to get back into the game in a big way.
If you don't know where to begin in how to get started with preparing for interviews.
If you are interviewing for multiple types of jobs and don't know how to prepare adjustable responses based on the role and company.
If you aren't happy with the results of your last few interviews and know you could be doing better.

This is NOT for you:

If you have your own preferred approach to interviewing – definitely understand, I do too!
If you believe every interview question is real and don't want to consider the performative nature of many of the questions.
If you aren't interested in practicing your responses and prefer to go in and work off the cuff.
If you would prefer not to figure it out for yourself; DIY isn't your thing (100% understand this!).

TL;DR

Don't read these pages myself – you're in good company! This is a course designed to help you improve your interviewing skills so you increase your chances of getting an offer.

Why isn't there a live component to this?

Not having a live component helps keep the cost down, and my goal is for as many people to get to take the course as possible! But this program does have a live one-to-one coaching version. You can start a free strategy session with me about it here.

Do you have any free interview resources?

I don't have anything right now, but I am working on it! You can keep up to date with my DIY offers here and my blog and podcast here. This is where those resources will be when they're ready.

What if I prefer more one to one support?

How long will it take me to work through this content?

It really depends on you. You can get through the content in a weekend and implement in a week or vice versa. Or it might take longer if your time is not your own.

Everything is in small increments so you can pop in and out as you have time.

Is this program accessible?

Every piece of content is broken down into the smallest bit possible. Each section has a summary notes provided. There are videos with captions, speed control, and video quality control. There are transcripts.

I am always working to make my content more accessible so please feel free to email me at support@workandworthcoach.com for your specific need.

Will this really be able to help me have better interviews?

Absolutely! I once had someone only finish 2/3 of the program before their interview, and they said they had the best interview of their life! And of course got moved on to the next round and got to finish the last 1/3 of the program.

Who are you? How did I get here?

Great questions!

I'm Cristin Downs, an Executive Coach at Work & Worth.

I’m a possibilitarian. Also an executive coach, a theatrical thinker, a producer, and a lot of formers – too many to list! I help fed up folks and determined do-gooders pivot from jobs they despise into a life they love because we deserve better.

How you got here – most likely you signed up for one of my free offers OR a friend sent you here. Two most common options. Glad you're here, either way.
