Used one and got an interview. Also had a Wharton alum edit my essays - I’d say the latter was more helpful. And free.

Used one, got an interview, and got in. She helped me craft everything, so it was well worth it

They are truly invested in your success and you have unlimited access to them. I started working with them last December! They also have a great team and have the right people to help you with individual aspects (e.g., someone specializing in the HBS essays, interview coaches, etc)

Hi!! Any tips/stories on actively interviewing while ✨pregnant pregnant✨. (27 weeks) All potential positions are fully remote, and they are all Mkting Manager/Senior Mkting Manager roles. I have three 2nd interviews coming up, and I am struggling with when to disclose! Two of the companies seem very mom-inclusive so far, so part of me wants to be upfront/honest to build a positive rapport as well as potentially negotiate maternity leave that I would otherwise not qualify for this far along!

Starting Friday (early morning) with a Google rejection saying the interview is cancelled less than 2 days after its scheduling. Got rejected from Apple too this week. On the bright side, I recently got promoted and have been receiving great PPMD & SM feedback for a few weeks & genuinely felt proud of my work+feats - I think that is equally, if not, more important than getting praise. Gotta take life with the good & the bad. Gonna keep trying for FAANG & MBB still! We all gotta keep swimming!
