"I cannot begin to thank John for helping out with a Mock Interview session! He truly went above and beyond expectations. My situation was pretty extreme where I had less than 24 hours to prepare for an interview as I was pulled off the candidate Wait-list. He told me everything I needed to know and prepared me for the high yield questions that commonly appear in interviews. Overall, my interview went smoothly and I would have booked even more appointments if time allowed me to! I HIGHLY recommend their services. Great people with a wide range of experience!"

"Great simulation of the MMI. It is much more affordable compared to other services out there. The personalized summary report was received promptly and offered insightful details and feedback. The most valuable component for me was seeing how I performed in relation to other applicants."
