Reviews for this mentor

June 16, 2021

This mentor provided excellent career guidance and provided me with tailored advice based on my unique background and professional experiences. I plan on booking more time with him in the near future and would highly recommend him to others.

I want to submit a review of my mock interview experience in November 2020.

I am no stranger to WSO's mock interview service-My mentor is my third mock interviewer. Thus, I believe that I am well-positioned to review his handling of the mock interview.

What he did differently is that he replicated an actual interview situation: leaving the interviewee uncertain about the interview questions, alternating between behavioral and technical questions, and providing feedback only after the interview. What is important to me is to be put on the stop. It is impossible to recreate this feeling if the interviewee is in charge of the direction of the mock interview and pre-selects specific interview questions. He veritably knew which levers to pull to challenge me and leave me with a steep learning curve. In addition, his calm demeanor proved crucial in getting across the feedback, and it gave me a confidence boost for succeeding interviews. Most importantly, he has shown continued interest in my interview processes, which is indicative of his genuine engagement with his mock interviewees and a great character.

I am very thankful for the mock interview with my mentor, and I plan on referring him for my future interview preparation.

The mentor is an extremely friendly and experienced professional; he was very sincere and helpful in his approach. Within the call, I gained his expertise in useful succinct interview approaches and techniques. I look forward to future mentoring sessions.

Was extremely pleased with the Mentor's service! 

He put in lots of effort in helping me prepare for a modeling test and provided many useful insights that can only be known to someone with years of practical experience.

I honestly wouldn't have done as well as I did without his help.

He is extremely experienced and showed a genuine interest in my success and progress.

I definitely plan on working with him again!

I am very happy with the service provided by my resume reviewer. He was diligent in understanding my background to accentuate the experiences I had whilst making the resume more concise, which I would not have been able to do on my own. They provided insight behind each adjustment made and responded promptly. The whole process was efficient as they knew exactly what recruiters and decision makers look for in M&A roles.

My mentor has helped me a lot in strengthening my resume. He was extremely communicative throughout the process: in just three days we exchanged more than a dozen emails and managed to completely rebuild my resume. He was able to drastically improve my working experience descriptions by making them precise and compact. 

His financial background and knowledge of what recruiters look for is very apparent. I would and I will recommend WSO and him specifically to others, as I am extremely thankful for his help.

I could not have been any happier with the services provided by my reviewer.

He did an outstanding job at asking the right questions, making the necessary adjustments, and upgrading my CV. I have landed interviews at multiple Elite Boutiques, which I probably would have never landed without his outstanding service.

I am already looking forward to working together with him on some interview preparations in the mentorship programme.

I am writing to commend the efforts of my mentor in your mentor's program.  Frankly, my prep with my mentor was superior to the prep that I received at school.  He ran numerous preparatory sessions with me and helped me earn an offer at an Elite Boutique for an MBA Summer Associate position.  

His knowledge and guidance throughout the interview process was invaluable.  I used several techniques that he recommended, which I can affirmatively say were well received by my future employer.  Further, he always had numerous iterations of questions which I wanted to drill for my technical interviews.  I was never able to exhaust his question supply.  

I offer him my sincerest thanks and my highest recommendation for other candidates.  When I have friends in the recruiting pipeline, I intend to recommend WSO, and my mentor specifically.  You should do the same.

I submitted a rush request, and my reviewer was quick to respond.  He worked with me to put together the first draft of my resume within the 48 hours window after I submitted my request.  He and I worked through several iterations of changes, and he tailored my resume for investment banking applications.

I am happy with the final result of my resume, and I would recommend him and WSO services.

He helped me out with my resume/CV for jobs in London. He has the right experience to give reputable and effective advice. He responds quickly, answers any questions, and is easy to work with. All in all, I would recommend him to others.
