I had a hard time gaining any job offers or even getting interviews due to my weak CV (limited work experience or extra-curriculars) and low grades. I took advice and career coaching from my university and some external coaching, still I was struggling to get my career progressing where I had wanted it to. I came across JKCoach in my search and spoke with Javed directly to see whether he can help with his career coaching experience and tackle my situation.
His coaching and guidance included a proper chalked out plan including focusing on getting unpaid work experience initially. This was followed with helping me secure interviews and being successful at them through interview coaching and guidance. Within a few months, I got a job offer from Standard Chartered and of course I accepted it. I am grateful to JKCoach for their coaching and feel my money was well spent (would have been more than happy to pay more).

I would give Javed 9 out of 10 for his amazing support and as a career coach. I think Javed has helped me to go through the questions I had quite thoroughly. He is definitely one of the best coaches I have come across who treats students professionally, knows his stuff but also genuinely put himself in our shoes and think about how he can help the most!
The point for improvement is: Push me a little further to think on my feet.
You have come across as a very nice and encouraging coach / interviewer. This might be your style (which I think is really nice and I've enjoyed these sessions very much compared to many others) but on the other hand, I wasn't put under much pressure.
Overall I think you were greatly helpful. Thanks Javed

JK Coach has helped me secure a job at 'British Gas'. I was struggling to make sense of how to go about finding a job, let alone finding the right job for me. Alongside this, failing my first year at University didn't help my application or my confidence. Fortunately working with JK Coach, I got the guidance, the support and the mentorship I needed to succeed. Thank you.
Update (2013): I have recently joined a smaller petroleum company. I am earning significantly higher than any of my mates from LSE (even the ones who topped all their exams). I believe this is due to my hard work, dedication and enjoying my work from day one. But I also believe your help and coaching back in 2007 has played a significant role in where I am today. Thank you again for all your amazing work, guidance and coaching.

I found your knowledge about pensions helpful for my understanding of the industry in general. The advice you gave while interview coaching regarding giving a brief introduction before answering each question and also asking lots of questions to the interviewer was also really handy too. Also, it was interesting to hear about your own personal interview and coaching experience.
Thanks again for your help and coaching!
