Reviews for this mentor

It is such a pleasure working with my mentor. He provides actionable and honest feedback on how I can improve my interview response and form my stories. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who is looking for career advice in the finance field.

Right on the money with assessment and career recommendations. Extremely helpful.

I just wanted to write to note how helpful my mock interview session. My tutor was extremely supportive and instructive, not only in helping me to prepare for my interview but by providing me insights on his own career, and guiding me to consider career options based on my own personal interests and background. I would highly recommend him to friends or colleagues of mine, and I hope to be able to connect with him again in the very near future. It was a great start to the program!

My reviewer's CV and Cover letter services have been extremely helpful. His experience and thorough knowledge in investment banking came in very handy and he first tried understanding my goals and the roles that I am targeting. He then designed my resume highlighting my past experience and achievements, making both my resume and cover letter more pertinent and succinct. I am now more confident about my job application and better informed about what a recruiter looks at while screening the applications. The CV and cover letter template differ across countries and therefore I highly recommend WSO's review services by my reviewer to international students like me. He has also been very kind and supportive to take some time out from his busy schedule to understand my questions regarding the UK job environment and how I should approach the graduate roles.

Down to earth and honest. Understood where I was coming from and where I wanted to be - offered advice that was very helpful while also clarifying some truths I needed to hear.

Cannot recommend enough.

I received my final Resume draft and I am extremely satisfied with the finished product! My mentor has covered all the points I had asked him to, and the service was great, as he always replied to me promptly. 

I will definitely recommend your service! Again, many thanks.

I am writing to appreciate the wonderful experience I have had with the WSO Resume and Cover Letter Service. My writer was very approachable, honest, and really cared about helping me craft these tools that were individualized for me personally with the non-traditional background I have. I really think my new resume and cover letter will help me land more interviews.

I just completed my session with the Mentor and simply put, he is fantastic! He understood my rationale and approach to apply for IB roles very quickly and helped dispel concerns I had about myself as an applicant. He highlighted my strengths and advised how to improve areas that need attention.

It is one thing to have relevant skills for the job, it is a completely different thing to CONVINCE the recruiting manager that you are a strong candidate in comparison to the 1000s of applicants that contest for each seat in IBD. I regret not speaking to him sooner and I am looking forward to booking more sessions with him immediately. I strongly recommend this mentor!

Thank you for taking the time to work on my resume and cover letter. I love the final products, they illustrate more of me / my hardships and, in a way, my resiliency. You did a phenomenal work at conveying my latest experiences and relating my courses with the job opportunity I'm hoping to land. This experience taught me to open up more about my experiences and to own each one of them with pride.

Thank you for the job hunting and interview tips. Stay safe.

I want to let you know that the mentor that you paired me with worked out incredibly well. He successfully made a move from IB to S&T late in his career and gave me valuable insight into how he did it. I'm so glad that I followed his advice and reached out to some of my front office contacts to network. I was pleasantly surprised by how willing a lot of these folks (most of them senior) were willing to take the time to chat with me. My only regret is that I wish I had reached out to a mentor earlier. Had I not reached out to this mentor, I might still be stuck following the same unfruitful game plan. I feel like this mentor really opened my eyes and I am hopeful of the future with this new approach that I am taking.
