How does career coaching work?2021-11-04T21:01:04+01:00

Our process is a hybrid of coaching and mentorship. As advisors we give you advice using a tried and tested process. We also provide you with tools and insights that help you achieve your goals. Learn more about our approach here.

Why can’t I figure this out myself?2021-11-04T21:01:04+01:00

If you are like most of our clients, job / internship search or university admissions is something you do, perhaps, a few time in your lifetime. However, we are in the business of admissions and career advisory. We have helped several hundreds of clients like yourself and helped them avoid making the same mistakes that you might be making. In other words, we have gathered a lot of experience from our successes and failures. You don’t need a career advisor or admissions consultant to land a job or get an admit at a university. Nevertheless, having a support system, an experienced team, and trusted partners like INTRVU by your side will help you reach your goals much, much faster and avoid a lot of frustrations and mistakes along the way.

How long does an engagement last?2022-08-15T23:43:03+02:00

Typically, we strive to complete each client engagement within 6 weeks, so that you can focus on applying to opportunities, instead of waiting for our deliverables. However, this duration also depends on your timelines, goals, financial situation, and the package you purchased. We coach you as a person, not drag you through a process. This means, we adapt our engagement process to meet your constraints. Likewise, we also expect your time and commitment in the process.

Do you do coaching in person or virtually?2022-08-15T23:53:18+02:00

Both. We primarily coach virtually via Skype / Google Hangouts. We also offer in person coaching and advisory sessions in certain locations where our advisors and coaches reside.

Can you guarantee that I will land a job?2022-08-15T23:50:43+02:00

We do not offer any guarantee or promise that you will secure a job without appraising your candidature and the overall job market. However, we can assure you a high quality of service, process and artefacts. The job application process is complex and deterministic process that depends on macro- and micro-economic aspects, such as labor market sensitivity, trending skills, business cycle, personnel demand, a company’s hiring plans, immigration policies, etc. Many of these aspects are beyond our sphere of influence. Hence, we commit only to the engagement aspects that we can confidently and reliably deliver.

Can I pay for your services after I get a job / internship?2021-11-04T21:01:04+01:00

What is the minimum required class size?2021-11-04T21:01:04+01:00

Generally, anywhere between 30 and 90 students participate in our workshops. Each advisor can handle 30 – 50 participants in a workshop. For class sizes exceeding 30 participants, we bring in another advisor to manage the workload during workshop. To deliver more personalised attention to the participants and to deliver the most impact to your participants, we recommend that a class size does not exceed 30.

Our presence workshops are usually conducted at the institutions that engage us to deliver our workshops. Correspondingly, we align with the institution’s registration approach. If our client wants to organise the workshop as an open event, we will plan our workshop accordingly. On the other hand, if the client wants us to deliver our workshop to select audience, we can do that as well. Each advisor delivering the workshop can handle 30-50 participants. Correspondingly, our prices and workshop structures differ depending on the number of participants, workshop focus, and focus areas. Please get in touch with us to discuss the workshop you have in mind.

How can I organize this workshop at my university / company / institution?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

No, we don’t offer translation services in-house. However, we collaborate with authorized translation partners that offer translation services of high quality. Please get in touch to explore your translation requirements.

Why should I engage you?2022-08-15T23:36:57+02:00

We bring deep insights based on current and historical admissions data, several proprietary and job market insights that benefit you. Furthermore, we offer complete transparency in our engagement and focus on client outcomes. Our individual services, tools, insights and data, frameworks and methodology are all designed and delivered to maximize your application throughput and odds of your achieving the desired outcome.

Can you promise me an admit?2022-08-15T23:32:38+02:00

No, we do not promise our clients that we will secure an admit for them. In our view, promising our clients that we can secure them an admit is highly unethical. Most German universities independently make admit / reject decisions. German public universities are funded by the German tax-payers and they do not partner with private admissions consultants. In other words, no private sector market player (as we are) can influence universities’ decisions. However, we do leverage our experience, software tools and data, market insights, and network to help clients maximize their admissions chances. So far, 99.99% of our clients have achieved their objectives of securing admits to European academic institutions. In short, we do not promise that we will secure an admit. However, we do promise an excellent quality of service, application documents and individual attention that you deserve.

What makes your different from other admissions consultants?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

We incredibly obsess over our clients. Our clients approach us with their career aspirations. In other words, our clients TRUST us with their careers. We take this very seriously. We do not trifle with our clients’ careers to win short-term business. Instead, we take on a long-term career view of our clients’ careers and work backwards. We fully understand that any decision or recommendation we make has a long term impact on our clients’ careers. To achieve this, we have installed mechanisms to ensure that we adhere to our core principles. For example, we always start each engagement with a Discovery Call, during which we dive deep into our clients’ real career motivations to both, architect an application strategy and advise them on the appropriate overall career strategy. To provide an example, we have recognized strong business acumen with some of our clients and recommended them to pursue business courses instead of engineering programs. Those clients went on to graduate with highest scholarships and land full-time opportunities at global organizations as HSBC, Amazon, Novartis, Microsoft, etc. We look around the corner and provide career advise based on both, our clients’ passions / strengths and European job market demands. Many local consultancies lack the insights we possess to provide higher education aspirants with the advise that we could offer due to our geographical advantage. In addition, we leverage data and technology to closely monitor market developments, such as emerging skills needs, staff capabilities, etc. These differentiators enable us to provide the kind of holistic service to our clients.

Should I purchase your package before starting an engagement?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

Yes. Our services are high touch. In other words, our Advisors will personally work with and guide you through the entire application process, start-to-end. We do not want to let the financials disrupt the flow of our engagements. Instead, we resolve all financial matters upfront, so we can focus and dedicate our energies on deliver the superior outcomes that our clients expect us to deliver. Hence, an upfront purchase is mandatory before commencing an engagement.

What is an ‘engagement’?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

Engagement is the term we use for our client projects. Our clients in the center of everything we do. We chose the term Engagement to signify the long-term nature of relationships we nurture with our clients. As most of our clients aspire to study in Europe, we adopt a long-term posture to these relationships. We proffer advise and recommendations to our clients during their Internship and / or Job search as well. With local admissions consultants, the relationship ends when you secure an admit / get a reject from a European academic institution. But, to us, this is just the beginning of a relationship. Once you’re in Europe, we’ll invite you to our career seminars and workshops to enhance your career chances. We view ourselves as your extended family in Europe. Hence, the term Engagement.

Do you offer group discounts?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

Yes. Due to synergies that we can leverage across clients with similar profiles, we offer discounts on packages purchased as a group. We require a group size of at least 5 to offer this discount. Please contact us for the discount that we can offer to your group.

Will you decrease your fees in the future?2021-11-04T21:01:03+01:00

Since 2015, our fees have gone down from € 1759 (in 2015) to € 849 (in 2021) over 5 price cuts. We have made several innovations in our engagement process and tools that have resulted in substantial costs and efficiency improvements. We pass on these savings to our clients by decreasing our prices. As a current / prospective client, you benefit from the learning and innovations we gathered from our previous engagements.

Should I apply despite my poor grades?2022-08-15T23:29:15+02:00

Though grades comprise an important selection criteria, admissions committee consider the overall applicant profile when shortlisting candidates. Approximately 2/3rd of our clients have relatively weak academic grades. Weak academic grades should not discourage you from applying. During the engagement, we will evaluate your grades and overall candidate profile to showcase your strengths in a compelling manner through your Cover Letter, Curriculum Vitae, Statement of Purpose, Application Essays, etc. During the university selection process, we identify the appropriate courses, programs and universities based on our historical admissions data. We also advise you on additional courses or activities you could undertake to compile a strong candidate profile. Throughout the engagement, we will iterate and refine your application, make it stand out and improve your odds of securing an admit.
