Vineet Joglekar

Software Development Manager

“Interview Kickstart offers a comprehensive program to succeed in technical interviews. It helps you build a problem solving mindset, offers very rich foundational material (arguably even better than what you learned in college), introduces typical interview problems, offers technical and behavioral coaching sessions and mock interviews from industry experts. The structured curriculum helps you create a plan, rather than just randomly solving leetcode problems.”

Software Development Manager

“Interview Kickstart's program is wonderful. I found the classes as well as the materials provided by Interview Kickstart very helpful. Omkar was my favorite instructor and his sessions did help me a lot to understand the concepts in a well-structured manner. The way he applied concepts in solving problems as well as the general structure of his approach was fantastic. In the mock interview sessions, I was able to clear my concerns on a 1-on-1 basis. It was helpful for me and played a huge role in my transition from Messie to Amazon. Interview Kickstart, keep on doing what you are doing and helping people transition into FAANG companies.”
