Overall Feedback : Good and Helpful What went well: 1) Evaluation was good exercise as it helped gained confidence for answers which i knew and guide me for topics which i need to prepare more 2) Resume feedback What could have been better: 1) Companies to target for jobs 2) career path/Job profile explanation - If i have some visual reference which can be used during the call will prevent loss of information/misunderstanding.


It was a very good experience speaking to Mr. Karthik via TapChief. He was able to give me guidance on the kind of roles I can take up given my professional background. He also gave me valuable inputs of altering my resume for such roles. I was really happy with the mentoring session on TapChief.
