Hi I'm Dr Nidhi and I got selected in UPSC medical officer exam.. This was made possible only because of the guidance of Sanjeev sir... Attending the classes and giving mock interviews with sir was a great boost in my confidence ... In an interview the things u do are as important as things u don't do and nobody can teach them better than sir... Over the course of few days you will realise the tiny mistakes u have been making so far which didn't even seem important...I didn't even think that in just a week I can make such drastic improvement. Joining career quest was the best decision and I'll recommend it to everyone going for any sort of interview... Thank you again sir.. It was made possible because of you.

Hi I am Amol Patil, CAPF 2018 AIR 39. I have been allotted 102 marks out of 150 by the UPSC board. I took guidance for the interview preparation only from Kabeer Sir in Career Quest. Career Quest was suggested to my by friend who is already an Assistant Commandant.
I think interview preparation is very wide and subjective. It depends on individual and the preparation varies according to the person. But Kabeer Sir has mastered the art of coaching when it comes to interview preparation and he has strategy to make guidance according to the need of each and every Candidate. His vast experience helps him to share important points during the classes which helped me alot.
Just after interview I made call to Kabeer Sir and gave him overview of my interview. At that time he predicted my interview score, to my surprise is was 100% correct.
For each and every personality test related guidance Kabeer Sir's Career Quest will remain my first and foremost suggestion to everyone. Thank you Career Quest Team.

My name is Neetu Bhatia,i joined career quest for kvs prt interview preparation.As i scored less in the written paper,my chances of clearing this exam were quite dim but when i met Sanjeev kabeer sir my dream of clearing this prestigious exam turned into reality.He is a wonderful person who knows how to realise your best potential ,always motivates you,someone who is always there to clear your doubts and confusions regarding interview .I remember how everytime he encouraged me when i was negative about clearing this exam and how well he conducted mock interviews and kept polishing my skills and made me use them during the actual interview.
Right from choosing the perfect attire for the interview to body language to how to respond and not just reply(as he says in his classes)kabeer sir is one person whom you can count on for any interview preparation and the best part is he never takes credit for his efforts,is a humble soul and a gem of a person.
Thank you so much kabeer sir,thank you so much career quest .The whole credit of my success goes to you sir,thank you once again for helping me to get 52/60 in Interview .
