Suhas: IT and Software -> HEC Paris

Working with Karthik feels like doing a smart and a critical introspective. He has put in a great effort to understand my profile, to the minute detail, question every tall claim I made and made sure I had substantial information to back my achievements.

If I have to make a list of people who had a significant impact on me and who contributed the most in my life, Karthik my counselor from August Academy would be one amongst them. Coming from a highly represented pool of typical Indian IT guys with GMAT above 700, I was facing a huge competition and was totally clueless on my application essays. I had interacted with many service providers and I can confidently say my admission into HEC Paris wouldn’t have been possible had it not been with Karthik and August Academy’s help.

Every aspect of the services provided by August academy make one understand one’s profiles at a deeper level. By just working on my starter files my idea of my strengths changed drastically and at the same time, they made me pinpoint the exact reasons why MBA and how could it help me reach my goals. Working with Karthik feels like doing a smart and a critical introspective. He has put in a great effort to understand my profile, to the minute detail, question every tall claim I made and made sure I had substantial information to back my achievements. Their approach to resume preparation using the STAR methodology brought a stunning resume that highlighted my best aspects in a way comprehensible to the adcoms who can be from diverse backgrounds. I was very bad during my mock interviews and on one occasion during my ISB interview prep, Karthik worked with me late nights back to back, taking mock interviews, giving feedback and grooming me to the best level. The mocks were so helpful that I use the same lines to pitch my experience with almost everyone. In short, I strongly recommend August Academy not just for application essays but to have a deeper change in the way one approaches to promoting oneself at any level.
