"I just want to drop you a quick email to let you know that I have been offered the Retail Marketing job at JD Sports, that my interview was for last Thursday, which I am delighted about! Your help was invaluable and made such a difference to the way I interviewed. Thanks again James, and hopefully we will cross paths again in the near future"

Cliona McDonnellBrand Manager – McDonalds - 2020

“The information given to me and the preparation with James for my interview was invaluable. He taught me skills and pointed out weaknesses that I otherwise would not have recognized myself. I was able to use these skills and techniques during my interview for an internship with a law firm in Ireland and I am certain that I will retain and continue to use these skills throughout my career. His experience prepared me and was most certainly the reason for my success.”

Rachel PereiraAssociate - Clifford Chance - 2020

“I leave on Tuesday 31st August to commence my International Exchange at the University of Minnesota, School of Law. It has been a very rewarding summer made all the more successful by the advice and coaching skills received from you. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for all your help. Making contact with you at the very early stage of the process was the key. Your input into the presentation and content of my CV was invaluable and with a strong application I secured an interview. Again, in preparing for the interview you were always encouraging, positive and empowering. The ultimate success in being awarded the internship can be attributed to your coaching techniques and the careful planning process you guided me through. For all of us who embark on the process of applying and competing for positions for the first time, it can be a daunting task. With your help and guidance, I feel that I have acquired the skills to succeed in obtaining interviews and participating in them in a professional, confident and sincere manner. I have recommended you to a number of my friends as I feel they will benefit from your coaching skills just as I have. Again James, my sincere thanks."

Patrick BrophyAssociate Vice President, Legal at ORIX Aviation 2020

“I contacted James when I was looking for a change in career. In a structured series of meetings, we discussed areas as wide ranging as personal branding, energy, motivations, dealing with recruiters from agents to entrepreneurs, the image we project, the future as well as the taste of great coffee! Through the process James was intuitive, straight talking, incisive and, importantly for me, flexible in his approach when needed. Following the process I was far more assured of the next steps I wanted in my career, and as a result I was able to follow this through with a more focused and confident approach.”

Paul Geoghegan

“I can definitely say I would recommend James Fitzsimons for interview preparation and advice. James’ simplistic yet effective approach regarding the structure and content of a vast range of interview questions allowed me to best prepare for upcoming interviews. It was an extremely beneficial experience and would encourage anyone seeking graduate recruitment in the near future to avail of his services”.

“Good news thankfully – got a traineeship with William Fry. Very happy.”
