Feedback from other students:
"I really enjoyed having a mock interview with you. The points you
told me are what I would never know without your help. For example, I
should have listened to your questions more carefully." -GSAS, '15
"My interview went very well. I took you advice and incorporated a
bit more of myself into the interview and smiled a bit more which I
think really helped. My interviewer invited me back for the second
round of interviews in their office in late October." -CC '13
"Just wanted to let you know that I got it!! Thank you so much for
your help with the mock interview. It definitely made me more
comfortable." -SOA, '15
"Thank you so much for your help with preparing me for the interview
the other day. I am happy to inform you that I got the job and signed a
contract today with the company. I wasn't so happy about the salary and
I negotiated with them and got them to raise it a bit but I think it
will be a good start especially under the economical situation that we
are going through. Thank you again." -GS, '11
