Sr. Director, Infosys
I have rarely met a recruitment team, which spends time to understand and explain the job; They shared the JD as well as gave colour behind the job to bring it alive for me. I knew i wanted the job, and was not exploring.
VP, Aditya Birla Group
The team NEXTLEAP - care for candidates and represent candidates; I was surprised, when they continued to be in touch with me, and help me 'think through' my decision w.r.t another opportunity vs what they had to offer.
I had spent number of hours & top dollar in refining my resume/ personal brand, but i was not happy. Team NEXTLEAP, understood my aspiration and brought in functional knowledge to hold my resume together- without telling a lie, it helped me position myself as a serious candidate. I felt more aware and confident of my skills after reading the resume they wrote for me!

She tends to take a realistic log term view and at my level, got me to question my values in life, before I took a decision. Nextleap team is positioned as a recruiter- but they behave as coaches, who are on your side
I was struggling to find a job which meets my financial and career goals. Kanika forced me to re-think my life goals and see where my Career fits. It just help me de-stress, improve my performance, and find a job, that was right for me, instead of the job that was out there.
