Amazon Job Interview Prep Success Stories

Sanjeev B.

"I had a nice interview, had a good discussion with the recruiter manager, cracked the principle questions very well with better fluent English. Thanks to you. But unfortunately, I was not selected for next interview as they want the expert level in coding and SQL queries developer which I honestly said that I can not do since it is not what I am expecting from the job responsibilities. 
I thank you once again and meanwhile, please feel free to reach out if you happen to be in Columbus city. I and my wife would love to meet you personally. Best wishes to you continued teaching passion. God bless. :)

"I worked with Jennifer for 5 sessions. We practiced regular questions and behavioral questions, and she also explained to me how small talk works in America in interviews. She also told me I had to start reading the paper in case someone asked me about current events at dinner or at the interview. Our preparation clearly worked because I got accepted to the Cleveland Clinic, which was my first choice."

"Jennifer helped me write my resume. She showed me how to describe my jobs using numbers – amount of sales per year, for example – and I think that was very helpful because I am in sales and the numbers are important. I put my resume on LinkedIn and I got called by a recruiter the next day and had an interview the next week. Jennifer gave me tips on how to talk about myself in the interview. My English is not perfect but I did well and got a new job making more than my old boss!

Wenyu Jiao

"Jennifer helped me prepare for my interviews. I was applying to colleges in the US as a transfer student. I go to an English language school in China now and so my English is good and I did well on the TOEFL but when I worked with Jennifer I didn't know how to answer the questions quickly. I think I am good at English but I never speak with native speakers so I had to practice before my interviews. I also didn't understand some of the questions that she gave me. She explained them to me and I practiced them for homework. She also told me I needed to research the schools more before I went to the interviews. I applied to 5 schools and I had Skype interviews with all 5. I did much better in my interviews than I thought I would. I wasn't perfect, but I got into American University! Thank you for your help Jennifer."
