She was very beneficial in my job search as I navigated the stressful obstacles of recruiting. I had two interview processes that I worked through with her, one that was essentially won, but a hiring freeze was implemented, and the other that resulted in a full offer. She helped me navigate from the first call with HR, through preparing for case studies, to the super day, and through final negotiations. I was able to turn to her for insight for every step of the way, and she was able to provide advice through her own experience and leverage her experience on the other side of recruiting. She always made herself available on short notice, was very thorough, and went above and beyond. As an example of going the extra mile, she reached out to someone in her network that formerly worked at the firm I was interviewing to better tailor interview strategies. Her support was invaluable, and I believe it truly led me to get the job I wanted in short order.

She was instrumental to me landing an offer during the full-time recruiting process. Her approach begins by making a diagnosis of the resume and behavioral & technical questions. From the diagnosis, she tailored our sessions to target specific weak points and improved all aspects of my interviewing skills. She is extremely knowledgeable, dedicated, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of advice and guidance.

I have worked with this mentor over the past 2 years to prepare my resume each recruiting season and have been successful in securing my desired internship each time. Most recently, I also worked with this mentor as part of the mentorship program to prepare for my upcoming interviews and was extremely fortunate to have their help and guidance throughout the process.
My mentor was able to quickly understand where I was in the process and worked with me through the steps of my interview preparation having already updated my resume and helped me secure several interviews. We then were able to sift through the different interview behaviorals and technicals to decide which areas I could use the most assistance on and narrowed down it down to a few specific types of questions. From there, the mentor offered several great tips for answering the different questions and which specific areas the interviewer may dig deeper and more than adequately prepared me for all questions they ended up asking. After the end of our calls, the areas I was once most worried about became my strong suits and ultimately helped me secure my desired internship for this coming fall. I cannot thank this mentor enough for all of their help and the time they have put into preparing me for my recruiting period. I will definitely be recommending my friends to the service as they go through the recruiting process this summer.

Incredibly responsive, thorough and helpful. Talking with them on a regular basis really helped with my move from Big 4 Consulting to the Investment world. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for resume help, interview prep or general finance career advice.

I wanted to take the time to thank you for the time you took in helping me rework my resume, I sincerely appreciate it. I was very impressed with the outcome and was of great value in landing my second PE internship. I was very impressed with your work and diligence with my background, and would be highly interested in working with you again.

It was a really good experience and I definitely learned a lot from her.

She is incredibly knowledgeable, extremely accommodating, and an absolute pleasure to work with. I work full-time and interview for lateral analyst roles whenever I am able. Given the informal nature of the lateral hiring process, I've often received 11th hour interview requests and she has always gone out of her way to schedule time for us to speak beforehand (often times with only a few hours' notice). Furthermore, I have yet to experience an interview or attend a superday where I'm asked a technical question that she has not covered with me. She has been instrumental in helping me develop a job search strategy and continues to help me execute the goals we have outlined together. All in all, I highly recommend her to any and all job seekers in this field.

I want to thank you for the mock interview, it was extremely helpful. My mentor couldn't have been better, I really thought I could use some tightening up on my answers / responses and my mentor gave great input on how to synthesize key points and draw conversation in the interview. The service was immensely helpful!

After we get your detailed questionnaire and match you to one of our mentors, he or she will schedule a time for your initial 1 hour session to help gain clarification and start the process ($50 off first session). If you think the mentor is a good match, then you can purchase more time (73% of our clients buy more hours).
48-72 Hour Rush Service Available
The standard mentor session takes approximately between ~3-7 days to schedule, however, upon checkout, there are options to expedite the service for an additional fee (+$100) in order to get matches and scheduled within 48-72hrs after submitting your questionnaire and resume. While this is not ideal (we encourage clients to sign up before a rush is needed), we realize sometimes tight deadlines and interviews are unexpected/unavoidable.
