As a CELL is the basic structural unit of LIFE similarly CAREER LAUNCHER was the basic building block of MY JOURNEY to one of the top B-schools of our country. This journey had two stages: one was cracking CAT and the other was cracking the interview process. For the first step the CL mocks and analysis helped me immensely in understanding where I stood after each and every mock, what my strong and weak areas were, and my potential for improvement. Various tools like CL's MBA Profilizer tool gave me a very real picture of what calls I might get given my profile. Then there were mocks which were solved online by CL gurus, which helped me a lot in understanding how to approach questions in VARC section (my weakest section).
Regarding the second step, more than concentrating on the interview itself, the CL PDP program revolves around the process which leads to the interview. Beginning with the online classes about knowing oneself, shedding light on what MBA actually is and more so shedding light on what I feel is the most complicated question that is: WHY MBA?, the PDP program was of monumental help to me during the interview process.
My first mock interview with GP sir was of a great help because it gave me a true picture that I won't stand a chance if I don't start taking things very seriously given my average profile. My subsequent mock interviews with Gopi sir gave me the strength to move on, look beyond my initial rejections and face future interviews with a new zeal. Apart from the mock interviews, the online video classes by Mehekka mam on the various facets of Indian and international economy gave me great content to for the group discussions and certain interview questions.
Throughout the journey, I had enormous support from my parents and my friends. But CL truly had a colossal influence on my journey!
