What people are saying

        With Priyanka's methodical approach to interview preparation, I went from not passing any phone screens to getting 2 competing offers (including a FAANG company) within one month.

        Priyanka's program has really been valuable. Her suggestion of not interviewing at my dream company was great because it helped me get over my interview jitters. I landed an amazing opportunity in my target domain area which has brought me closer to my career vision.
