Reviews for this mentor

My mentor had a great impact on me, successfully getting a private equity associate job at a leading middle-market fund. She helped me stay grounded and focused in what can become a very chaotic and stressful recruiting process, and even though we had a handful of sessions together, I think those were very efficient and productive since the tactics and advice she shared were targeted to the specific interviews I had and the specific areas I needed to get better at. I think she's able to draw diverse perspectives thanks to the background she has, and she is always up to speed on the industry and different funds given her network and her own recruiting experiences.

I highly recommend working with this mentor, our sessions have been the best investment I’ve made into my career this year. She gives very detailed and actionable advice, which immediately improved my traction with recruiters and employers, and ultimately led me to secure my dream role.

One of the best investments I had. She is super sharp and very experienced. She can point out where you can work on right way, but in a very nice way. I enjoyed talking with her. That is why I booked my second mock right away. You know a good mock partner when you meet one. Definitely, she should be on your list.

I highly recommend working with this mentor for anyone anyone interviewing for PE opportunities. She was very thorough and extremely helpful in my preparation, providing very detailed feedback and concrete means by which to improve. Her prep style really helps you develop, as she provides specific, live feedback to your interview answer, giving you an opportunity to revise in an iterative setting. I would definitely use her again (indeed I follow up with her periodically as a refresher) and would recommend her to anyone looking for PE interview prep.

The best piece of advice I can give to anyone who is looking for that extra help when it comes to transitioning into investment banking/private equity, needing general career advice, or preparing for interviews is to sign up with her as soon as you can. I registered for a resume review and a 5-hour session, which, overall, is not an insignificant amount of money. But I wholeheartedly believe that I got every dollar's worth from having her as my mentor. She will provide comments and advice without all the dressing and help you each step of the process to get you to where you want to be. In my experience, my mentor turned my resume around a full 360 degrees and is helping me prepare for my interviews.

 I recommend you are proactive with what she tells you to do as if it was coming from a doctor because you will profusely thank her by the end. My only regret is that I didn’t sign up quicker!

Working with my mentor was a pleasure and extremely helpful from the start of the consulting engagement. In the middle of my Private Equity recruiting process, I hit a rough patch and she was able to encourage and help me set my mentality properly for the task ahead. Apart from just helping me shift my attitude, she gave me actionable recruiting advice and a great format for practicing interview questions. I also utilized her help for interview practice and she asked extremely applicable and specific questions which I later crushed in my interviews and ultimately landed me in my dream private equity role. I rate her a 10/10 and would recommend her to anyone looking to break into the buyside. Thank you. 

We started working together at the beginning of October. She has been absolutely amazing. She has been mentoring me on different career paths and also has been incredibly helpful during my unexpected job search. She is very personable and responds very quickly which I really appreciate especially as my job search has sped up. She has incredible insights / resources and is always upfront with me with regard to feedback / potential opportunities I am looking at. I would 10/10 recommend her to someone!

It has been an invaluable experience for me. I'm currently interviewing with a Private Equity firm, and I have had four mentor sessions with her before my interviews. She provided me with excellent guidance and constructive and honest feedback, which has helped me identify my current strengths and weaknesses and learn to improve. 

In addition, she asks me questions more often than simply telling me what to do, and the curiosity makes her relate to me from my perspective. My mentor has a strong background in finance and industry knowledge and is open to sharing her expertise. She is an outstanding mentor, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional development.
