Are there any coaches that can provide referrals for the UK offices and help in interview preparation for the same?

Thank you

Hi there,

No coaches should be offering referrals as part of their services.

Referrals come from contacts you've made who think you'd be a good fit for the company! they're not products to be sold.

That being said, most coaches (including myself) provide coaching in regards to how to obtain referrals, network, interview succesfully etc.

Always happy to talk!

Ian has the absolute correct answer here. Coaches should not be providing referrals that has to come from your own network for it to be meaningful and helpful to land a job.

A lot of us here have the experience to tell you how to leverage your network to obtain a referral and would be more than happy to help

Best,
