What Our Mentees Say About Us
ALANKRITI SINGH, ISB YLP ADMIT
"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."
Akanksha Bajpayee, ISB PGP Admit
"I took Career Edge's help to prepare for my ISB interview after wasting a lot of my money on another admissions consulting firm which didn't help me at all in my essays. Sarthak was very helpful in handholding 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"
Rishabh Jain, ISB PGP Admit
"The mentors at Career Edge over time and connects helped me in several ways. 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. They emphasized 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. They helped me figure out the unique elements in my profile that I can potentially use in the future to make a difference/value add to the cohort."
Diva Kandpal, ISB PGP Admit
"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."
Uday Sampath, ISB PGP 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."
Nishtha Kapoor, ISB & Rotman Admit
"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."
Manasvi Jaiswal, ISB EEO Admit
"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."
Arushi Arora, ISB YLP Admit
"Through Career Edge, I was able to gain 100% clarity on the ISB 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."
Yogesh Aggarwal, ISB PGP Admit
“My Career Edge mentor gave me a very detailed idea of the MBA 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.”
Vikas Pilla, ISB PGP Admit
“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 that session was very fruitful and he reviewed my essays into the final cut.”
Anjali Giria, ISB PGP Admit
“My journey with CE has been great. My mentors have been so invested in my journey, the entire experience was very personalized and revolved around using my strengths correctly and areas to work on before the application/interview.”
Shriya Pati, ISB PGP Admit
“The guidance has been really insightful and has helped me understand what are the key areas I should focus on and provided me with great clarity about the ISB MBA process. I am really thankful to the CE team for all the support and timely mentorship.”
UNNATPREET KAUR, ROTMAN MBA 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”
SEERAT KAUR, ISB PGP ADMIT
"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."
NISHA SRINIVAS, ISB PGP ADMIT
"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."
NAVEEN BALAJI, MASTERS’ UNION
" 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."

GMAT Coaching Program In Detail
Live, zoom-based coaching program which runs for 2.5 months (~80 days). Live classes will happen on Tuesdays (8-10pm IST), Thursdays (8-10pm IST), and Saturdays (5-7pm IST). We cap the batch strength to 10-15 students.
All sections of the GMAT – Verbal Ability (VA), Quantitative Aptitude (QA), Integrated Reasoning (IR), and Analytical Writing (AWA) are covered. Verbal and Quant sections are the determinants of your overall score so the primary intent is to finish them thoroughly first. IR & AWA are covered in the second half of the curriculum.
Our faculty have scored a 760+ on the GMAT multiple times and have been teaching students since the last 10 years. Mr. Paramjit Das Sir is the Verbal head and faculty. He has scored a 770 on the exam (V44). Mr Gaurav Jain Sir is the Quant head and faculty. He has scored a 760 on the exam (Q51).
Intent is to cover everything from scratch. We divide the course curriculum for both verbal and quant into subtopics. You are given a pre-read (in the form of a pdf or a video) before every live class which introduces you to the subtopic (for instance – Coordinate Geometry in Quant).
In the first half of the live class, the faculty do a thorough deep-dive of all the properties, concepts, and theory for the subtopic. In the second half of the live class, they practise questions with you on that subtopic. Post the class, they give you more questions to practise on that subtopic along with solutions and their approach.
All study collateral in the form of GMAT Official Guides, 5000+ practice questions, concept notes, and 6 mocks are provided to you in a soft copy format. You don’t need to buy anything or hunt for any resources beyond the program.
We create a WhatsApp group amongst the learners and the faculty where you can take their help with any concepts that you are not able to understand and questions that you are not able to solve. You can ask doubts on the WhatsApp group, or in the next live session, or in the next doubt solving session.
If you miss a live class, we help you with the zoom recordings because we record live sessions on the go. You have access to the recordings of the live sessions up to 1 year from the date of enrolment.
1:1 MBA/MIM Admissions Mentorship Program In Detail
1:1, unlimited zoom-based mentorship sessions and offline feedback on WhatsApp & Email by an alumnus of your target school to help you complete each and every component of your application from scratch.
Everything from writing your business school essays with you and for you from scratch to completing work experience pointers, awards, achievements, hobbies, CV writing and LOR guidance is covered in this mentorship.
We also help you with interview preparation for which we schedule mock interviews with your aligned mentor and they also help you in understanding what questions you can be asked in the interviews and how best to tackle them.
We align you with a mentor from your target school (let’s say it’s ISB). The ISB alumni mentor firstly schedules sessions with you to map your strengths and weaknesses. Then they start discussing essays with you and brainstorm what to write (which work stories/life episodes to mention). Then they write the essays for you and with you in the zoom sessions.
Once the essay drafts are edited and finalised, they get them reviewed from a couple of other alumni of the same school. Then they help you in writing and completing other sections of the application like – LOR, Work Experience, Awards & Achievements, CV and Hobbies.
Once you get an interview call from the target school, the aligned alumni mentor firstly helps you in understanding what all questions you can be asked in the conversation basis your unique context and aspirations. Then they help you in finalising the content of each and every question.
Then they schedule 2-3 mock interviews with you to give you feedback on the delivery of the content and ensure that you are ready to crack it.
