An IT professional Aeshna wanted more and was feeling stuck in a monotonous job despite working for a reputed Tech MNC. Aeshna felt stuck and did not feel she could get out of the vicious circle she was stuck in. With not much clarity, she was referred to us y one of her friends who we had earlier helped make a career transition.
Time was of the essence in her case, her GRE score was low and deadlines were fast approaching. We knew we could not have worked on her scores any more but realizing the amount of work she had done our mentors decided that it should serve basis of her application. The mentors and her profile coach went TECH TECH TECH with her profile. The first thing to do was to narrow down on universities which were running projects or professors from these universities who needed the specific skills Aeshna had. We then sat down and helped her write to these universities individually with a letter of introduction. This strategy of targeting individual skills and presenting them as a key asset for individual universities and the networking we brought in play paid rich dividends.
Despite a score most would have thought it is not possible to even get an admit Aeshna worked very hard to highlight her skills and align them with 3 universities which gave her admit. She finally chose to go to Rutgers.
