Hi Logo Cropped Sized 685w


Hit Interview delivers more than 20 years of recruiting expertise, with a full range of results-focused products and services, for businesses and professionals. Hit Interview’s Founder, Carol Sosalla, studied thousands of outcomes in competitive hiring and high-volume recruiting, as applicants navigated an ocean of open positions. Recruiting provided Ms. Sosalla a front row seat to all the train wrecks, big wins, and everything in-between.

As an agency recruiter, I was surprised when candidates had paid for the typical professional resume makeover. These resumes looked great at five feet (sometimes) but would rarely deliver results when submitted – I always had to start over.”

Everything had to be questioned, nothing was off limits or “good enough”, and no matter what was accomplished, there is always a way to make it even better. By paying close attention, clear patterns emerged and difficult problems faded away. With time, Carol developed the repeatable methods, situational calls, and results-based expertise that formed the foundation for Hit Interview.


Today, Carol Sosalla serves: C-Level Clients, Executive Leaders, VPs, Directors, Board Members, Company Founders, Independent Contractors, and Executive Candidates, from across the U.S. and internationally. With hard work and a straightforward process, she is able to deliver proven strategies and consistent results.


What Hit Interview clients can expect:

With the advent of LinkedIn and the dominance of social media, the hiring landscape has changed dramatically. As a result, casually approaching your career search like you did, even five years ago, can be a frustrating experience. As you advance in your career it is even less forgiving- the pool of viable opportunities is smaller, making every interaction that much more important.

I talk to a lot of clients that had gone with a cost-focused resume service or just “toughed it out” on their own, and they have a pretty consistent story to tell… In hiring, there is no feedback loop, so making the wrong moves or not presenting your story correctly can create months, or even years of searching in a vacuum. Situations like these are crushing to hear about. These clients said they weren’t getting the calls on application, and they really didn’t generate inquiries from their LinkedIn profiles.”

It is becoming increasingly apparent to professionals: success during a search or advancing within your organization depends on your ability to create a winning online profile and leverage a solid social media presence. Because this space is still evolving, those that take steps immediately can capitalize on a huge opportunity to stand out within their companies and in their fields.


A major component to the value Hit Interview provides is through increased efficiency and time saved. With the right tools and materials, there is no question: “Is my stuff correct?” Instead, you can focus 100% on the process, with the freedom to to simply network and communicate. At the end of the day, you will be better positioned to capture the high quality, choice opportunities.


Getting the right job without plodding endlessly to get there- or more important, a better paying job, makes an investment in this area comparatively insignificant to what you stand to gain. After you’re hired, the benefits continue- your profile will support you professionally, within your organization. In addition, the ability to build and leverage a large professional network will continue to serve you throughout your career.
