Atul helped me in my interview preparation for one of the top companies. His sessions really gave me a good insight into how I could better answer the behavioral/situational questions with the art of story telling. I was really impressed by the way he takes notes during the sessions and gives a very specific feedback pin-pointing the flaws in the approach. He puts himself into your shoes and gives examples on how the stories can be improvised. He was always willing to spend extra time and effort during and after the sessions answering questions. He introduced me to one of the Product Managers in the same company I was going to be interviewed. It gave me a great insight into what the company actually looks for in the prospective candidates during the interviews. He also gave me valuable tips on how better to approach people in the companies. Atul's mock interview session helped me in general to handle job interviews better and gave me a confidence boost. It was definitely a great experience working with Atul and I look forward to more interactions with him in future :)Umesh

Atul has tremendously influenced my professional career and is continuing to do so through his guidance and coaching. Before my professional career began and before my interaction with Atul, I was always under the impression that I am a confident person and a decent communicator and thought I would do well by myself in my career. Following my interaction with Atul, which happened after I was three months into my first full-time internship opportunity, I was able to evaluate my strengths and weaknesses thoroughly. My coaching interactions with him were enlightening as it shed light on the areas of improvement in me. He helped me navigate my career in the right direction by guiding me on how to harness the power of my strengths. Not only does Atul help you discover your strengths, but he also enables you to uncover your weaknesses and provides you solutions to overcome them. As a result of his guidance, coaching, and constant engagement, I was able to develop excellent communication, networking, and interviewing skills, and that helped me land my first ever full-time job. These skills continue to help me excel in my present role and stand out from my peers. Atul, owing to his substantial corporate experience, is also capable of guiding you through the salary negotiation process. I found his salary guidance to be crucial for someone at the entry-level of their career. Atul's most prominent quality is that he can change your outlook as a professional, and the way you perceive your career. With Atul's coaching, my perception of a dream job has changed from "A job that pays you well" to "A job that allows you to do the things you love, employs your strengths, and at the same time pays you well." Atul's passion for coaching, empathy towards students, eternally optimistic mindset, and his immense knowledge of the industry is what makes him an outstanding coach.Rajat Bhagat
I had Atul Kalia as my university professor. He continuously went above and beyond to help myself and fellow students get the most out of our "Entrepreneurship" class. Up until today, I reach out to him and seek advice. I highly recommend working with Atul as he has always shown strong knowledge and provided clear, specified guidance!Jan Horstkoetter
