As a recent college grad, I was surprised how much I had to learn about the interview process. The expert advice and training from Interview Savvy saved me hours of interview prep. I am now a more knowledgeable and confident interviewee.

This is the best interview prep workshop I have attended… I have attended at least eight.

– Lydia G., University of Chicago '14

Walking into the seminar, I had very little confidence in my ability to give a solid interview. After the seminar, I’m feeling super-confident and excited at the prospect of my next interview!

– Clarissa M., University of Chicago '15

As a recruiter, I would say that the material is right on! An Interview Savvy candidate will be leaps and bounds ahead of the competition!

I'm confident Interview Savvy will give me an edge above others because I have never heard of any of my friends doing something like this. It was extremely helpful.

I would encourage anyone who is in the market or who will be in the market again for a job to take this class.
