    Ben is a perfectionist. He helped me until I get my CV exactly right. I highly recommend him

  • 5/5

    Consulting Mock Interview

    Very detailed, extremely insightful, and incredibly engaging. My session with Ben was by far the best evisor session I had. From beginning to end, Ben was very comprehensive with his feedback- pointing out strengths and weaknesses, and recommending some "AMAZING" ways to stand out and shine during a case interview. Whether you are just beginning to practice for case interviews (or interviews in general) or you are honing your skills, Ben will be able to provide you with comments that you, other coaches, and other case partners were not able to notice. With that said, I'm looking forward to my next session with Ben.
