Is that you?

How many times have you come out of a mock interview thinking, “If I am already doing great, why don’t I have a job yet?"

    First, research shows that most people are just as afraid of providing honest feedback as they are of receiving it. Feedback is sandwiched between lots of praise, only praise, or nothing at all.

    Second, there's too much emphasis on following a cookie-cutter approach to interviewing. You are frequently advised to conform to standardized (read: outdated) recruiting practices rather than bringing your whole self to the interview room. In short, sounding scripted is preferred over sounding authentic.

FOMO makes it worse. In pushing you to pursue short-term gains, career advisors give the same patented advice that has been given to every student on the planet - 'stand out from the crowd'. But do they empower you to deviate from the norm? The result is that we begin to look more like our competition.

So how do you stand out?

You do so by your social presence, confidence and authenticity!

  • Did you genuinely engage with the recruiter in the networking session the night before?
  • Did you have the mindset to believe that you were the right fit for the job?

Interviews are not won by crisp pitches alone. They are won by being a likeable personality in the room. Interviewers want to recruit people with high emotional intelligence and social presence. After all, the recruiter is first a human and then an interviewer. For instance, if you train your mind to see the recruiter as an acquaintance introduced to you by your friend, you will be your true self and will “talk” to the recruiter rather than “interview” with them.

This is exactly what I love doing over and over again. I provide direct, specific and actionable feedback to individuals so they identify their unique strengths, refrain from being "robotic", and bring their authentic selves to interviews. This requires a mindset change, and that is my underlying approach. My goal is to provide you with continuous feedback that you can use to reflect and recognize your latent self.

If this resonates with you, let's chat! I will throw you a raft and get you out of the raging unidirectional flow. You were not born to flow with the tide, you were born to carve out your unique journey!

Who am I?

Engineer (GE Healthcare) | Homemaker | Marketer (Dell) | Impactopreneur (GOTR)
  • 8 years ago, I refuted barriers by earning my dream job that society repeatedly said was far-fetched!
  • you can either find me in the company of my best friend a.k.a my husband
  • 2 years later, I broke stereotypes by quitting that same job to embrace the life of a homemaker in a brand new country called the United States of America
  • or off the beaten path trying to explore the rugged beauty of America
  • Today, I defy norms by leaving behind two 6-figure MBA job offers to start #GOTR
  • ...or last but not the least debating and challenging the status quo with my friends.
  • ...and this is all because I am happy when I am in charge of my life!
  • #GOTR was born out of that same conviction that I have held all my life.
