About the mentor
Reviews for this mentor
I don't even know from where to begin to thank you for all the great advice, help, support, and of course stitching together what I can only describe as being outstanding work. I'm quite certain I wouldn't have been able to synthesize so much information in one page without your help and guidance.
I was very lucky with this mentor. His approach to the session was clear and structured. I really liked that he understood my situation from the beginning and set the goals I should reach in an organized way. Regarding the feedback, he gave me the answers I was looking for and we agreed to work on future sessions. Something that I liked very much was that he was direct with the answers and after reviewing my CV he told me what my weaknesses were and what my strengths were and how to exploit them in the recruitment processes. I would always recommend this mentor as his answers are clear and straightforward.
Thank you for the final version. I am very happy with both the cover letter and the CV. I like the structure and the wording.
