Why am I here? Why now?

I started my Career with “The Chopras” in year 2000 as a counsellor. I was introduced to the Senior counselling team for training and simply put I liked them and greatly respected their passion, drive, and intellect.
As an Admissions – National Head at Jamboree Education & The Princeton Review, I have been counselling students for past 18 years in the college admissions space and have realized there is something very troubled about this market. Nowhere else have I seen folks signalling such pain through anxiety and stress due to lack of Professionally trained counsellors who are supposed to guide students ethically without any interest. At a fundamental level, college admissions is a market with information asymmetry where sellers (the companies) hold huge advantages over the buyers (families) who are making a high stakes decision.
In my past 18 years I have trained more than 300 counsellor’s and editor’s on effective counselling and creative writing which have resulted in more than 10,000 Admits into ambitious universities.
I founded Career Weaver because I experienced the benefits of near-peer mentor ship in my own life and through Career Weaver, I hope to help many students discover the same life-changing mentor ship. And in the process, I hope to create stronger students, better higher ed outcomes, and ultimately more passionate contributors to society.

With quite a “less than average” experience required to crack top schools and with a comparatively lower GMAT score, I felt that my chances of cracking the top B schools are really low. But then, the idea is to unravel the “spark” you have and how to leverage the right strengths for the right schools. I got interview calls from CEIBS, TAMU and ISB and converted CEIBS and ISB (with 20% scholarship). With the passion to get into consulting and with a background in retail and sourcing, I have now worked with companies like Deloitte(Strategy and Operations) Consulting, Cognizant Business Consulting and now recently moved to a Global Pharma company, Novartis. Apart from work, I love mentoring students and helping them chart their career graph. I love singing, have been a mystery shopper, and continue to work for social causes!
