I got an opportunity to have a session with Viraj for my resume review and mock interview for one of my aspiring job roles. Viraj offered me very relevant and focused suggestions customized for my aspirational job based on my past experiences. Mock interview was really an eye opener which made me realize some of the key points I lacked. Viraj not only rectified my shortcomings but also gave his personal suggestions on structuring the right answers while interviews. I highly recommend this service.

Depending on the type of service, you will receive follow up materials from the coach post meeting. See below service specific FAQs for details.

Start with your goals and then map them to coach attributes to figure out the right coach for you. For example, if your goal is to get a Google Data Scientist offer, see if you can find a coach who is currently in that role or was in that role.
