What Our Learners Say About The CE Experience

Shortly after attending the Career Edge Consulting Program, I was given the offer to join Bain & Company as a Senior Analyst.

My experience with Career Edge was great. The Fellowship started off with the basics and fundamentals and advanced as we moved forward. 

My biggest takeaway was the different case frameworks and case problems discussed in the sessions. Since it was being taken by consultants who work with McKinsey, Bain, BCG, and Dalberg, it gave me insights into how consulting interviews actually happen.

And as the recordings of the classes can be accessed anytime, it helped me to revise all the frameworks discussed. The 1:1 mentorship sessions and all the resources shared were also quite helpful for me to practise for my Bain CV and interviews.”

Shortly after my sessions with Career Edge, I was given the offer to join the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) as a Research Associate.

I would like to thank CE Consulting Fellowship and Sarthak for being supportive and giving candid feedback as and when required. 

My experience has been super good as I was exposed to the logical ways of answering guesstimates and case interviews. The live sessions were amazing and made me understand how to crack them with comfort. 

My journey was awesome as the material they provided is gold as the actual case interviews helped me understand what interviewers are looking for in a candidate and that helped me to improvise my approach towards them. 

Heartfelt gratitude towards CE and Sarthak!”

Soon after my sessions with the Career Edge consulting mentors, I was given the offer to join Dalberg as a Consultant.

They aligned me with mentors who are actually working as employees in the firm which really helped me in clarifying all my doubts.

I also scheduled detailed CV Review and mock case interview sessions with them to get more practice and put my best foot forward. 

Thanks to team CE for helping me with timely and credible help.”

I joined BCG as a Management Consultant and took the help of Career Edge for case practice and CV making sessions.

My experience was very good and I could quickly schedule multiple sessions with my mentors who were working with BCG & Dalberg.

They helped me understand the nuances of what is asked in a BCG interview, what consulting firms look for in the interviews and mistakes to avoid. 

I got to practise guesstimates and cases with them and got very concise and implementable feedback on how to improve which helped me in my actual interviews.”

I will be joining Bain & Company as an Associate Consultant and the Career Edge Consulting program really helped me a lot.

Thanks for organising the CV making and roadmapping sessions with Mukund who was my CE mentor working with Bain & Company. It was really helpful and Mukund gave me no-nonsense feedback and helped me with a detailed CV review and case practice.”

Thanks to the Career Edge Consulting Fellowship, it was really helpful.

The live mentorships sessions really helped me in rebuilding my CV. The mock case practice sessions and the practical feedback given by the mentors for everything from guesstimates to cases to cover letter writing were amazing.”

The fellowship was ripe with information and guidance. The mentors from McKinsey, Bain, BCG, and Dalberg were extremely helpful. It’s perfect for those who want to start their consulting careers but don’t know where to begin.  

As part of the live mentorship and placement support provided by the team, the most important learning for me was understanding the importance of structure, be it in your CV or the way you answer questions in an interview. Everything makes sense and seems easier when your approach is methodical.”

“Shortly after my sessions with Career Edge, I joined Samagra as an Associate.

My whole experience was very good. Shivam who was my CE mentor helped me in every step of the way. He was always available and cleared all my doubts. The cases that we discussed in our sessions were very enlightening and helpful. 

He reviewed my performance with extreme detail and preciseness and gave me excellent feedback which ultimately helped in improving my overall performance.”

I attended the Career Edge Consulting Fellowship during college and will be joining ZS Associates post graduation, bagging one of the highest packages on campus.

Thanks for organising the sessions with Shrey who was my CE mentor working with ZS Associates. It was really helpful and Shrey cleared all my doubts and helped me with a detailed CV review and case practice.”

“After my sessions with Career Edge, I have joined Samagra as an Associate Consultant.

I booked mock case practice sessions with Shivam who was my mentor from Samagra. He helped me in mock case sessions as I was completely new to them. 

My whole experience was augmented by the 1:1 touch from the CE team right before my Samagra interviews.”

It was an enriching journey. It was very well managed and all the mentors shared first-hand experiences and learnings.

The Case Interview and Guesstimate resources and skills taught during the live sessions were exhaustive and super useful.

The Fellowship had diverse members and even the mentors came from very diverse backgrounds.”

“I was part of the 1st CE Consulting Fellowship (back then it was called Consulting Cohort), in May 2021. It was honestly an amazing experience. I got guided on every aspect related to consulting – from CV drafting to case solving in the most practical and easiest manner & got 1:1 mentorship guidance from a consultant at McKinsey, which helped me in my EY interviews later.

I am super grateful for the CE team for all the support, guidance and mentorship.”

“I took Career Edge’s help to prepare for my ISB interviews and got an admit from ISB.

My Career Edge mentor gave me a very detailed idea of the ISB interview, directions to prepare for it, and helped to solve all the doubts I had. Many questions we discussed were actually asked in my interview”

“I took 1:1 MBA mentorship sessions with Career Edge and got an admit from the Indian School of Business.

My journey with CE has been great. My mentors have been so invested in my journey, the entire experience was very personalised and revolved around using my strengths correctly and areas to work on before the application/interview. 

It helped me identify and fill a lot of potential gaps in the interview preparation. I think the feedback given was the most valuable resource and it helped me a lot to get a sense of direction for my actual interview.”

“The fellowship gave complete exposure of consulting interviews and paid attention to all the small details one needs to take into account while preparing for the consulting interviews, which has really helped me in my own professional career track.

The CE team was very quick with any doubts and nudged you to think what do you truly want to achieve out of your career.

My most important take away was that I could realise what I truly liked. My connect with the CE mentor was very helpful. He matched my profile and guided me in the right direction.”

I took 1:1 mentorship with Career Edge to prepare for my ISB YLP (Young Leaders Programme) application and got an admit.

The sessions helped me in multiple ways. I was able to gain clarity on the interview process, what is asked and how to answer it. It also pushed me to structure and connect my answers to my larger goals. Since I had barely 3 days to prepare for the interview, this guidance really changed the game for me. 

Most importantly, it helped me understand my story and goals better. This clarity helped me keep calm through my interview, which was unconventional in nature.”

Recently I was able to get into Technology Consulting at EY, thanks to Career Edge.

My experience with the CE Consulting Fellowship was a great learning opportunity I am surely looking forward to putting Career Edge as my star recommendation for my peers interested to achieve professional goals in management consulting.

My biggest takeaway is not only limited to finite learnings and the Consulting curriculum provided by the CE team, but it actually gave me the confidence to vouch for my capabilities in any interview process. One of my greatest experiences was interacting with industry experts from Big 3 & Big 4 and their feedback was very helpful.”

I took 1:1 mentorship and guidance with Career Edge to prepare for my ISB EEO (Early Entry Option) application and got an admit with the school.

The guidance was really insightful which helped me understand what are the key areas I should focus on and provided me with great clarity about the process. I am really thankful to the team for all the support and timely guidance.”

The experience was really good. The way the sessions were conducted helped us to have a deep insight into the world of Consulting. 

What stood out for me was the approaches and frameworks for case interviews and the mentorship from top industry professionals.

As part of this Fellowship, I could get a closeup from Consulting professionals into their journey and best practices on Guesstimates solving, CV building, and case rounds and we also solved a live project with them.

I took help from Career Edge for my ISB applications and was able to bag an admit from the school.

I’ve known Sarthak Verma even before thinking to apply to ISB and when I decided to apply, I reached out to him on the last day of the deadline to review my essays and that session was very fruitful and he reviewed my essays into the final cut. My second interaction with CE was when I received an interview call and then again I reached out to Sarthak to help me out.

I was assigned Taru Dashoriya who is also an ISB alum with whom I had 2 mock interviews and she really helped me introspect through my entire profile and helped me with structured answers.”

I joined the CE Consulting Fellowship because I was at a point where I was finishing college but didn’t know from where and how to start preparing for a corporate career.

They invited mentors from companies like McKinsey, Bain, BCG, and Dalberg who pointed me in the right direction to start my preparation and strengthened my basics of consulting.

I learned about the easiest way to approach Guesstimates and Cases in an organised manner along with live case solving. The sessions were really interactive, unlike typical Google meet/Zoom sessions.

They also provided me with resources so now I have all the ingredients to learn and embark on my preparation and corporate journey. Thank you, CE!”

Thanks to Career Edge, I was able to bag an admit with ISB. 

The mentors at Career Edge over time and connects helped me in several ways: First: Much before the interview shortlists, they helped me better picture what exactly is the PGP program at ISB and how might it align with my short term and long term goals.

Second: They emphasised certain skill sets that are required in any ISB or MBA cohort, and then helped me chalk down the action plan on how I could try to achieve such skill sets.

Third: During my interview mentorship sessions, they helped me structure my communication and thought process so that I could effectively deliver my ideas before the panellists. Additionally, they helped me figure out the unique elements in my profile that I can potentially use in future to make a difference/value add in the cohort. 

As always, CE has been a great platform to interact with professionals and alumni from prestigious institutions and organisations, helping to clearly picture different kinds of roles/opportunities out there and figuring out ways to ace them.”

“The CE Consulting Fellowship was an incredible opportunity to develop my skills in management consulting, business case studies and strategic problem-solving.

The team was very supportive and collaborative, which allowed me to contribute meaningfully to the mentorship sessions and the live case project and network with MBB & Big 4 mentors for employee referrals. I’m grateful for the experience and excited to leverage my newfound skills in my future career, applying them to complex business challenges with confidence and creativity.”

I got an admit with both Rotman and ISB and took help from Career Edge for my applications. 

Thanks to Sugandha (my CE mentor) and the entire Career Edge team for your valuable insights and guidance on my Rotman and ISB application journey. It is because of your help that I was able to confidently tackle my interviews and get admits to both schools.”

It was a great experience with Career Edge. I got to know a lot about Consulting as a career option. Further, it helps me learn how to solve various types of Guesstimates and Case studies. 

The live CV-making session was super helpful in redrafting my CV and aligning it with Consulting roles. And last but not least, the 1:1 mentor session was the icing on the cake, as it allowed me to clear any personal doubts related to Consulting/career advice. 

After completing the 5-week course and the practice I did with my peers, I am much more confident in solving Guesstimates/Case studies and am ready for my final placements, especially in Management Consulting.”

I got an admit with ISB and took help from Career Edge for essay writing and interview preparation.

“Thank you to the team for your patience and end-to-end guidance for my applications. The way you helped me with essay writing from scratch, helped me form a narrative, and then helped me with mock interviews was immensely helpful. You guys were as invested as me in my journey.”

“I took help from Career Edge with MBA admissions counselling and ISB interview preparation. 

I connected with Sarthak (my mentor and ISB alumnus) on multiple occasions. He guided me on ISB’s admission process and we had detailed discussions of which questions to expect in the interview based on my profile, followed by mock interview sessions and feedback on my performance. The sessions really helped in polishing my answers, body language, and confidence for the real interview.”

“ I took help from Career Edge with ISB essay writing and ISB interview preparation and got an admit.

Career Edge provided me with very helpful notes on what experiences to highlight in my essays. Sarthak who was my mentor and is also an alum of ISB helped me streamline and focus on the right things, while still maintaining my voice in my writing. The mock interviews also let me know what to expect in the real thing, and helped me prepare my answers and ease my nerves.”

“ I took help from Career Edge for ISB interview preparation and got an admit.

After wasting a lot of my money on another admissions consulting firm which didn’t help me at all in my essays. Sarthak from CE was very helpful in hand holding all my queries, explaining his own ISB interview journey, the questions I can expect, and how to best answer them. Most of the questions that we did were also asked in my actual interview and I thank CE for their support in my admit.”

I took help and mentorship from Sarthak from Career Edge for my Rotman MBA applications and got an admit.

The way in which the 1:1 mentorship sessions was conducted was genuinely unique and helpful for me to write my essays with the CE team and also prepare for the interviews. 

Thank you CE”

“Thanks to the Career Edge team, I got a shift to a product management role at Housing. 

After attending live sessions on PM case interviews, live case demonstrations, tools to be used, and many other topics covered across sessions, I got a fair understanding of what it takes to be a successful PM and what steps one can take to become a successful PM. 

Apart from that, the community is super interactive and helpful. Live resume edits help you understand how to make a resume for a PM role to increase your chances of shortlisting for PM roles.”

“The CE PM cohort is definitely one the best cohort-based courses present around. The sessions were informative and aligned with how actual PM interviews are set up. 

Really exciting & engaging sessions for 6 weeks & the project made me dive deeper into the world of Product Management! Every cohort these days will help you with resources but my biggest gain was I found a person (Sarthak) to whom I can reach out anytime. I pinged him at 2 AM in the morning when I had a doubt and he replied :)”

“The things I got to know today are those you can never ever get through YouTube videos or articles. 

I am definitely going to buy the mentorship sessions with all the other mentors you have one by one each weekend to get different perspectives & would share your initiative in my friend circle as well.”

“The mentor had a very clear structure as to how to go about the session, answered all my questions really well, helped me on additional points that were not mentioned by me before. 

In addition to that my mentor answered all my questions very calmly and suggested some excellent points to be worked upon.”

“Career Edge is the one-stop solution for your job and mba applications! 

The mentors are really helpful and go the extra mile to provide the best services! I must say that they helped me in writing my essays, brainstorming on the story to present, and helped me gain confidence.”

“Career Edge delivered the best services an MBA Consulting firm can provide. Very very helpful and thanks a ton for your patience and dedication to my MBA applications. Definitely going to recommend CE to others.”

The CE Social Impact Cohort brought together a pool of like-minded people. The best part of the Cohort was the information shared by people working in top Impact Consulting firms. 

From the monetary benefits to the exit strategies, from Impact Consulting to Impact Investing, I loved how the Cohort didn’t just focus on a general understanding of the Sector but provided a clear sneak peek into every aspect of the industry”

Great program and very economically priced as compared to other programs in the market. Extreme value for money. 

The guidance and sessions on Consulting and the support given on a 1:1 basis were standout factors of the Consulting Fellowship for me. “

The Consulting Fellowship was super insightful. It helped me get end-to-end visibility and exposure to how to make a shortlist-worthy resume, solve guesstimates and case studies with mentors from MBBs and understand the consulting domain over 2.5 months.

The CE team helped me answer individualised doubts as well through open-house sessions on Saturdays and gave me very specific feedback to get my CV revamped.”

“My best experience was the 1:1 mentorship session where I had a chance to interact with my mentor Sugandha who is an INSEAD alumna and is currently at McKinsey; she helped me a lot with getting clarity about my career path.

My experience in the CE Consulting Fellowship was really energising, being exposed to all the learning modules on CV making, Guesstimates practice and mock case interviews and learning with others who were very excited about consulting and everything that came with it – it was really helpful.” 

“Without the CE Consulting Fellowship, it would have been really difficult to get an offer from Bain.

The CE team took care of me by reviewing my CV, and we had awesome interactive sessions about case interviews, and guesstimates. I am from an engineering college and when I was interviewed, I felt like I had a serious advantage over other candidates just because I had been doing cases every week as told in the cohort. “

“I partnered with Career Edge for my ISB YLP application and interviews and got an admit from ISB.

Since I had never given an MBA interview before, I needed guidance on where to begin with. Sarthak helped me a lot in identifying the unique points in my profile and showcasing them.

He also helped me with probable questions that could be asked in the interview. We had multiple mock interview sessions so that I could get comfortable and be prepared for the actual interview. In just a few days, I felt much more confident and could ace my actual interview.

The in-depth review of the profile and helping me find out the strong and unique points about myself really helped me in the interview conversation.”

“The CE Consulting Fellowship provided me with a really enriching experience of how to apply for and tackle consulting interviews.

Each step of the process right from careers in consulting to CV making to guesstimates to case interviews to job referrals were explained meticulously by the CE mentors, who themselves are currently working with firms like McKinsey, Bain, and BCG. 

What stood out for me was the 1:1 mentorship session with my mentor, Nikita Jawa, who provided me with the much needed clarity on opportunities in social impact and governance consulting, since that is the domain I want to venture into.”

ISSHITA MEHTA, EY

The Consulting Fellowship sessions were bang on and really helped me in my own professional journey. 

What I liked the most was the 1:1 feedback and query resolution on CV making, guesstimates and case interviews, in addition to the live weekend training sessions by mentors who are current employees at the Big 3 and Big 4 Consulting firms. Really appreciate the effort put in by the team. 

I can reach out to them for help even now.”

I worked with Sarthak & team Career Edge on the ISB application and interview preparation and got a PGP admit from the school.

Sarthak has a lot of clarity of the application process. His approach was very structured and he knew exactly how to highlight my strengths and create a strong application in terms of the essays I submitted. The mock interview sessions really helped me to improve my answers as well as my confidence.

It was a great experience working with CE. The support I got made the entire process very smooth.”

 

 

“The cohort was amazing and had a great experience with your team.

I really loved how you took out time for answering any and every query through the founder hours on Saturdays while we had the live learning checkpoints on Sundays with other mentors from McKinsey, BCG, and Bain. The 1:1 CV feedback and Guesstimate practise on the fellowship group were standout components for me.”

“The experience was really amazing and filled with loads of learnings. Being an MBA student with science background, all the sessions were really very impactful as this was something too new for me and very important from consulting point of view.

The sessions starting with myth Busters then CV making, followed by Guesstimates and Live cases all were super interesting and helped me gain a lot of knowledge.”

“I took 1:1 mentorship with Sarthak from team Career Edge for my ISB applications and got an MBA admit from the school. 

In the initial sessions, he helped me write my essays and ascertain what I should focus on, to stand out. When I received an interview invite, he initially helped me understand what sort of questions can be asked. Then we finalised the content for the questions and scheduled mock interviews. He gave me pin-pointed feedback on what to improve, and that really worked for me in the actual interviews.”

” I signed up with Career Edge to write my application for Masters’ Union. Sarthak from team CE was my mentor. I got an admit from the school with a 25% scholarship. 

We scheduled 1:1 sessions almost everyday and brainstormed on what to portray in my application for me to stand out. Then we got to writing the essays, and reiterated them. We kept on reworking on the drafts till they were perfectly in line with what I wanted to convey to the school. 

For interviews, he helped me understand what all questions I would be asked and the best ways to tackle them.”

“I worked with Sarthak & team Career Edge for my ISB application/interview preparation and got an MBA admit from the school. 

He was very proactive in doing the 1:1 sessions and always went the extra mile to contextualise the content in my application and interview answers. This really helped me in getting a lot more confident before the D-day.”

“I have joined J-PAL in their South East Asia office as a Research Associate, after attending the CE Consulting Fellowship.

I’m honestly amazed by how much work Sarthak puts into each person’s growth. I’ll definitely recommend this fellowship to people in my network.

There are great mentors to learn from, and the resources prepared by the team are quite helpful for the actual interviews.

The Fellowship helped me build a muscle to solve cases and guesstimates.

Live sessions were particularly the most helpful for me in getting a nuanced view of what works in impact consulting interviews.”

“My experience with the CE Consulting fellowship was truly great.

The networking opportunities and mentorship provided through the fellowship have been invaluable in shaping my career trajectory and guiding me towards success in the consulting field.

My biggest takeaway from the Fellowship was learning how to solve case studies and guesstimate problems and actually use them in the interviews. Through engaging discussions, real-world simulations, and 1:1 feedback, I realised that I often tended to overcomplicate solutions, whereas a simpler approach could have sufficed”

“I took the help of the Career Edge team to prepare for my application with Masters’ Union and got into MU with close to a 20% scholarship. 

Akshat and Aditya, both helped me throughout the process and were of great assistance.

A big shoutout to the team!”

“I took the help of team Career Edge & Sarthak for my ISB MBA interviews and got an admit in Class of 2024.

He was very proactive in scheduling the live sessions with me as I reached out at the last moment and gave me deep, and honest feedback in mock interviews. 

That helped me in the actual conversations and I bagged an admit.”

“I partnered with Sarthak from Career Edge for my Masters’ Union MBA applications. 

Initially, he helped me in refining my essay and making it coherent as it had to be 150 words long. Then we scheduled mock interviews and finalised answers for all possible questions post I got an interview invite. The mock interviews and his feedback helped me a lot on the interview day.”

I took help from Career Edge and Sarthak for writing my Masters’ Union application and also giving my interview. Sarthak helped me in brainstorming what to present in the video essay, we did multiple iterations on the script and the content delivery and submitted the application. 

Then when I got an interview invite, we did 2-3 mock interviews where he gave me no-nonsense feedback on where to improve. The journey from the first mock to the actual interview was tangentially different and helped me bag an admit”

“The insights gained from the live sessions have been transformative and I am thrilled to express my gratitude.

I genuinely resonated with the Consulting Fellowship CV making & Guesstimates preparation sessions, as they provided practical guidance and shed light on the critical elements of a consulting job application. I’m incredibly grateful to Sarthak for organizing these insightful sessions!”

“Shortly after attending the Career Edge Consulting Cohort, I joined KPMG in their Management Consulting team. 

The live mentorship sessions and the cohort definitely helped me for CV making as well as interview preparation and case rounds. 

I have had an amazing experience.”

“Soon after attending the CE Consulting Fellowship, I got an offer from Accenture in their Government & Public Sector Consulting team. 

The online live lectures helped me in understanding how to clear case interviews without getting overwhelmed and the constant guidance throughout the process from MBB & Accenture mentors made a critical difference. Each session was engaging and informative, contributing significantly to my learning experience throughout the fellowship. Sarthak provided extensive support, promptly addressing my queries and offering valuable resources.

I want to express my gratitude.”

“Soon after attending the CE Consulting Fellowship, I joined PwC as a Management Consultant.

The CV Making and Case Interview sessions were definitely helpful. The sharp insights on how to tackle abstract business problems, how to answer fit questions, and how to approach guesstimates was immensely beneficial.

Thank you to team CE”

“I took mentorship from team CE for preparing for my interviews as part of the IIM-K EPGP application process.

I reached out to Sarthak for interview prep during my MBA admission process with only 2 weeks to spare. Our discussions on improving my answers and identifying response gaps were incredibly helpful. He followed up with a series of mock interviews to ensure my readiness for the actual interview. Always just a message away, he provided insightful guidance on structuring responses and handling potential curveballs. Overall, it was a fantastic experience.”

“The fellowship provided an immersive dive into the world of consulting interviews, leaving no stone unturned in its meticulous approach to preparation. Beyond just equipping me with interview skills, it profoundly shaped my career path.

The support from the mentorship team was exceptional; they were always there to address my concerns promptly and encouraged me to reflect deeply on my career goals.

One of the most significant takeaways for me was the opportunity to uncover my true passions and strengths. The CE team played a crucial role in this journey, offering personalized guidance that resonated with my background and aspirations, ultimately helping me find clarity in navigating my career path.”

“Shortly after my sessions with Career Edge, I got an offer to intern with EY as a Technology Consultant. 

The Fellowship was really helpful in understanding the minute aspects of consulting guesstimates and cases. It helped in understanding life in consulting with the help of insightful discussions from people working in big consulting firms.

Along with it, the CV preparation and resources provided were very helpful.”

“Shortly after completing the CE Consulting Fellowship, I joined EY as an intern in their Strategy Consulting team. 

The CV making session was very insightful and the case interview basics session taken by the mentor from Bain really helped me brush up my basics as it’s difficult for a college student to catchup otherwise.

The guesstimates solving on the WhatsApp group helped me build a muscle of problem solving, which has helped me in my interviews too.”

“After completing the CE Consulting Fellowship, I joined Deloitte as a Management Consultant.

The fellowship aided me a lot in understanding how to solve case interviews and guesstimates as we had mentors from the Big 3 and Big 4 to solve guesstimates with us.

They also enacted the role of an interviewee to help us understand what mistakes to avoid and how to structure our thought process in a case conversation.”

“My experience was excellent with the CE fellowship and Sarthak. 

The way in which we were given 1:1 feedback on our CVs, even beyond the fellowship, was impeccable. Also, the mentors were really kind and helpful and taught us how to think like a consultant and how to dissect abstract problem statements on the spot in a case or a guesstimate interview.”

“The amount of clarity and the direction that I have received in terms of consulting frameworks is unparalleled. 

The live tutorials provided by CE helped me develop a structured thought process, something which required a lot of hand-holding.

The fellowship has helped me in multiple cases and has helped plug the gaps in my strategy toolkit. 

We were also given daily guesstimates to solve and Sarthak gave feedback to everyone on their approach and shared his solution, which helped immensely.”

“Soon after completing the CE Consulting Fellowship, I landed a consulting role with PwC.

The fellowship provided comprehensive support, from crafting an impressive CV to rigorous interview preparation sessions whether it was guesstimates or case interviews, as well as 1:1 feedback.

Thanks to their assistance, I successfully navigated the interview process and secured a role at PwC. I want to express my sincere appreciation to Sarthak  the MBB mentors for their invaluable support in guiding me towards my career goals.”

“It is only because of the Career Edge Consulting Fellowship that I was able to take this pivot into the world of impact consulting and join Teach For India.

Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful experience. I’ll definitely continue to rely on Career Edge for all my future endeavors. Do consider me a dedicated lifelong supporter!”

Pranit will be joining Infosys Management Consulting as a Senior Consultant soon after completing his executive MBA. 

“Thanks to Sarthak and team Career Edge for all your help. I didn’t have any background or knowledge of Consulting and interviews prior to the fellowship.”

Urvija will be joining Deloitte Consulting after completing her bachelors from Ashoka University. 

“Hi Sarthak. Just wanted to express my genuine gratitude for your Consulting Fellowship and all the accommodations that you made for me. I think it really allowed me to get the right head start mentally before sitting for placements in such a competitive environment and prepare from end to end for cases and guesstimates. Thank you so so much!”

Shiladitya joined Deloitte after completing the CE Consulting Fellowship. 

“Hi Sarthak. Your case interview basics, and guesstimate practice sessions helped to crack the interview process. I got this offer because I believe there were certain nuances that someone who isn’t well prepared and hasn’t talked to industry professionals from Big 3 and Big 4 wouldn’t know about. That really stood out for me from the fellowship. Thank you so much!”

“I liked literally everything about the fellowship – the way it is structured, the way it is spaced about with enough time for practice and revisions, one-on-one feedback and group learning.

I particularly liked the personalised feedback aspect of the fellowship. This is, for me, the USP of the programme. One can measure his/her progress and can improve after receiving the constructive feedback given by Sarthak.”

It was a great journey and it really helped me to learn about Consulting. Sarthak is a great mentor, always there to help us and get our queries resolved as soon as possible. The program is very well structured and easy to grasp. I am really grateful that I was able to become a part of this fellowship program. Sarthak even helped me with the fees seeing and understanding about my financial condition.”

“I thoroughly enjoyed the entire cohort. Prior to this, I didn’t solve any cases or guesstimates, and my resume wasn’t what was expected. CE gave a great chance for me to learn all of these skills at one go and know what to expect. Sarthak has always been extremely helpful every time I’ve messaged for any doubt and I can’t thank you enough for that!

What stood out for me was the individual feedback/response we got. Usually people give a very generalised feedback when attending to a large number of candidates and that doesn’t help. Having personalised feedback really helped me in understanding where I could improve and work on.”

 

“The Fellowship program was extremely detailed and helped me understand how the consulting world works and how problems are approached in a systematic manner. I think every little thing was broken down into finer details by mentors during classes and high engagement with mentors during classes and doubt solving by mentors is the best part of the program. “

“It was an enriching experience and an upward learning curve. Sarthak made sure that course could remain as customised as possible. Availability and Accessibility of Sarthak was major determining factor behind the success of this course. And the diversity and rich background of peers stood out for me. “

“The effort that Sarthak and team has put in building the content, creating a network of mentors from various backgrounds, giving one-one feedbacks all are extremely helpful.

Thank you from the bottom of my for showing the light and giving us a direction. What stood out for me was Sarthak and his guidance. Everything else follows. Hands down.

“I learned step by step process to crack consulting interview. The fellowship as a whole was a great learning. I liked 2 things the most. 1. Extremely carefully designed curriculum. Liked the sequence and pace of introducing each checkpoint to ensure things are digested and we are not overwhelmed. 2. 24 by 7 support provided by CE team and specially by Sarthak.”

“The fellowship program is very well structured. I loved the concept of learning and growing together through Live practice on group. The resource material and session content is awesome. It helped me understand a lot of things about consulting and how to get a job in the domain.

The personal moderation of Sarthak Of the official group and being part of all the unofficial groups stood out for me.”

What stood out for me was the consistent, personalised guesstimate and case solving exercise during the Fellowship.

That coupled with the quality of the McKinsey, Bain, BCG, Big4 mentors teaching us on the weekends solidified our conceptual understanding of each and every concept.”

“I had reached out to Sarthak during my ISB deferred MBA (YLP) application. I can’t thank him enough for exhorting me to think critically about “Why MBA” and how specifically, ISB could help me meet my career objectives. It was a period of deep introspection and I believe that authenticity carried through into my interview as well.

The mocks I had with Sarthak were very well rounded with feedback that helped me refine my responses and upped my confidence to ace my actual interview. I would endorse Sarthak’s mentorship whole-heartedly.”

“The fellowship was exactly what I needed for consulting preparation – 1:1 CV feedback, followed by concept building and daily practice for guesstimate questions and case interviews by Sarthak. The weekend learning sessions introduced us to new concepts and case frameworks, while the weekdays were for practically applying what we had learned in a collaborative learning environment.

“I got an offer to join Accenture Strategy soon after completing the CE Consulting Fellowship. 

Joining this cohort was hands down the best decision ever! Nothing beats the vibe at Career Edge, and seriously, there’s no mentor out there like Sarthak. Career Edge is an absolute game-changer, and having Sarthak as a mentor is like hitting the jackpot. Even with 6 years of work experience under my belt, the learnings went way beyond just snagging a strategy consulting gig. CE is the absolute best!”

“The fellowship was very helpful in learning about how to make a CV, solve case studies and guesstimates. Every session had a step by step explanation which helped in making understanding easier. Very informative and helpful.

What stood out for me was the daily guesstimates/case practice with Sarthak. I enjoyed them the most as they really helped in understanding consulting interviews and how to think like a Consultant.”

“I got into a Social Impact role with the Chief Minister’s Good Governance Associates Programme – Haryana. Thanks so much to Sarthak for the Social Impact Bootcamp and also the Consulting Fellowship. The sessions and the material you provided really helped me a lot for the interviews and CV shortlisting!”

PARUL RANA, ROTMAN MBA ADMIT

“I got an MBA admit from Rotman, thanks to Sarthak and team Career Edge. The quality of mentorship was phenomenal.

He helped me write my Spike essay for Rotman, formed my narrative in the essay, wrote it on his own, and helped me crack the admissions process.”

“I got an admit from ISB for their flagship MBA (PGP) program, and took Sarthak’s help from Career Edge for drafting my application. As I navigated through the intricate process of applying to the Indian School of Business (ISB), Sarthak’s expertise proved to be indispensable.His insightful advice not only shed light on the best strategies for approaching the application process but also delved deep into crafting a compelling narrative that truly reflected my aspirations and strengths. Sarthak’s personalised approach ensured that I understood the nuances of the ISB MBA process, allowing me to focus on the key areas that would elevate my application.

I am immensely grateful to the Career Edge team for helping me take the crucial step towards a brighter future.”

“I got a PGPM admit from SP Jain, and took Sarthak’s mentorship for preparing my essays, application, and interviews.

Thanks Sarthak and team, for the wonderful support. I really enjoyed the application process as Sarthak asked the right questions and brought the best out of me to portray in my B-school applications, by writing my essays with me and for me. Would highly recommend Career Edge team for those looking for a definite B-school admit.”

“I secured an offer from Avant as a Business Analyst shortly after completing the CE Consulting Fellowship.

The Career Edge Consulting Fellowship not only honed my consulting and analytical skills but also played a pivotal role in refining my CV and preparing me for interviews. The comprehensive support and guidance proved invaluable in shaping my career trajectory. Highly recommend this program for anyone looking to get a head start in the field of consulting.”

“I had a wonderful experience with Career Edge. The curriculum was designed to cover base for professionals from even non business backgrounds as myself.

From learning basic case frameworks to guesstimates to having exposure to mentors working around big 4s, the fellowship is must for someone looking to transition into the Consulting space. Must mention – Sarthak was always a text away for any personalised query or feedback.”

“The fellowship had been very meticulously designed and curated to meet all of our learner’s needs. It build up right from the foundation to solving a guesstimate to have a structured approach to solving the different types of cases. The best part was how approachable the CE team has been throughout the fellowship.

One-on-one guidance and in-person doubt clearing during Founder hours was the best.”

“As someone who is not great with numbers, the end-end guidance given during the CE Consulting Fellowship on strategy for guesstimates and cases, enabled me to sharpen my logic, and use that to tactically select numbers for solutioning in my interviews.

Career Edge is the place for learning this craft, and you needn’t look further.”
