Why choose Qalista to prepare for your job interview?

96% of the candidates we have interviewed over the years suffer from issues regarding two main points:

Self-introduction and Question-handling

Therefore, they have difficulties standing out from others candidates and providing their interviewers with relevant information, leading to more stress and lower success rate - despite their actual skills for the job.



Boost your impact and confidence by learning and practicing the right content, structure and delivery with our exclusive SBP technique (Skills Based Pitch).


Reduce your stress by knowing you can correctly treat most of questions and interruptions from your interviewer.

Interviewers' expectations

Improve your chances of success by knowing in advance what your interviewer truly wants to hear from you.


Take control of your recruitment process by understanding the big picture and by correctly treating the flow of information.

October 2018. I got the job! Thanks to your training the interviewer was visibly impressed with my skills and this good confirmation when I got the offer for the job I really wanted. I’m super happy especially as this one seemed out of my league, thank you!

October 2018. A successful career change thanks to Qalista. For a long time I had wanted to change sectors while staying in engineering, but going in automotive had been more difficult than expected. Then the Qalista training allowed me to really understand what the interviewer needed from me and how to give it to hime.

September 2018. I was so anxious about standing out. I had no idea how interviews were supposed to be carried out, I just kind of thought if you were good the interviewer would naturally see it. So I just focused on my studies. Thanks to your training I made a lot of progress and I got the position that all my classmates wanted!

September 2018. I originally doubted the efficiency of such trainings. After all, I could find a lot of information on internet. But after training, I realised that I was doing many things wrong that could only be corrected by someone pointing them out

Our Story

One day,

After starting my 8th interview of the day to find engineers who would be willing to come on board ASAP (we had an urgent client project to take care of), I was starting to lose confidence in my ability to do so. It seemed difficult to differentiate all the candidates I had interviewed that day and I was nowhere closer to getting a qualified engineer onboard.


This last interview felt like a breath of fresh air. No matter that I was the last one in the office, no matter that I thought I could not bear anymore, this candidate got to me and presented his skills so clearly and with so much energy that I actually wanted to stay longer and talk to him some more.

That’s when it hit me. Recruiters like me were all around the country struggling to find the right employees and people all around the country were struggling to get their points across, seeing job interviews as painful necessities instead of seeing them as productive exchanges between two people.

And that is what we are, in the end: people. It is therefore at this point that we decided to start Qalista and make this exchange between two people - a job interview - an experience to look forward to, with the right kind of preparation. Increased success rates, more opportunities, improved negotiation… Everybody wins.


we have helped more than 150 professionals and graduates improve their job interview skills, cumulating a growing 850 hours of coaching in 3 locations around the world!

So welcome to Qalista, where together we will transform your future job interviews into exciting offers.
