Hi Peggy,

Last month I downloaded your app on my iPad because I was going on my first interview [in over a year]...I was feeling nervous about what to say in my interview. I know things change in the professional world when you're not in it and I didn't know what to expect. So thanks to your practice questions I nailed my interview!! And I got a job at the Walt Disney World Resort!! Keep up the great work Peggy, you are amazing at what you do and you gave me the knowledge and confidence to receive an offer from a place I've always wanted to work!

Best regards,

Shawne Dunn

‘The 30-60-90-Day Plan Got Me 3 Job Offers On the Same Day!’

fireworks- anthonyIf you are getting interviews but no offers, you need to pay attention to this story.

Anthony was getting interviews, but never made it past the first one.

He improved his answers to interview questions (with my Job Interview Question and Answers App), but what really made the difference was a 30-60-90-day plan.  Job seekers can be hesitant about trying something new in job interviews, like a 90-day plan, but Anthony is a great example of why you must have a 30-60-90-day plan.

With a 30/60/90-Day Plan, Anthony:

  • got 3 job offers in the same day (for all 3 jobs he used it for),
  • was offered a more senior position than the one he applied for
  • ended up with 30K in additional salary from that more senior role

This is the power of the plan--powerful interviews, more job offers, better job offers, and more money!  Read Anthony's story:
