"Behavioral questions are challenging for me as individual interviewers might have less than an hour to decide about my personality fitment. Without practice, my answers wouldn’t be coherent on an interview day. Monika did mock interviews with me regarding various topics I provided, additional topics based on her experience that might have come up during an interview. She gave me feedback about what more details I could provide and how to re-articulate in an effective way. She also provided zoom recordings of mock interviews so that I can watch my facial expressions. This mock interview and positive reinforcement helped me." - Krishna, Apple
"Monika gave me very specific recommendations on how to improve my résumé and interview strategies. The analyses that she made felt like someone turning on the lights in a dark room-- I knew I needed improvement in some areas beforehand but could not see where before she helped me." - Michael C.
