— Q & A —
How many interview training sessions should I take to prepare for my first interview?
If there is enough time, candidates generally take at least 3 sessions before their first interview with the following schedule:
Session 1: Preparation Questions with general feedback and advice on strategies
Session 2: Standard Questions with general feedback and reinforcement of strategies
Session 3: Additional Questions with focused feedback
Additional sessions are useful to build confidence, brush up skills before interviews with more schools
and practice for presentations or other expanded requirements.
Do you also review and edit resumes, essays and other application documents?
Yes. I can also support you with written materials. Just attach your documents
and let me know you would like to discuss them in our session.
How can I prepare for your sessions for essay editing?
I recommend creating draft documents and interview answers as close to the final version as possible.
The more prepared you are, the sooner we can work on more detailed and strategic content.
What is the most common advice or feedback do you give to improve interviews?
I recommend ending answers in a clear and confident manner.
Often candidates will stop their answer in the body section and leave out a persuasive closing argument
to achieve the desired result: Acceptance into the MBA program.
