Meeting Clients in the Redwood Forest

November 23, 2012 Posted by Vijay Ingam

Elk outside Cabin in the Redwood Forest

There were 28 elk outside my cabin in the redwoods. They didn’t stop me from meeting a client over Skype.

I’m in a cabin in the Redwood Forest seven hours north of San Francisco. My family is out hiking so my only companions are the 28 elk grazing outside our cabin (I counted them). I have no cell phone coverage here, but I do have internet. Therefore, I was able to have a successful job interview coaching session with a new client this afternoon using Skype.

The versatility of Skype and Google Video Chat is amazing. I can really help a client anywhere in the world. You could be next!

About Vijay Ingam

Vijay is an experienced financial analyst, career coach and hiring manager, who was disappointed with the interview skills of many job applicants, even those from top-ranked business schools. In 2009, Vijay began offering personalized interview coaching, resume and cover letter writing services in Los Angeles. Vijay’s services were unique because insisted that clients participate actively in the writing and editing process to ensure that resumes and cover letters accurately reflected client’s experience, skills and strengths. He encouraged his clients to prepare and rehearse their answers to common job interview questions prior to any job interview. After helping a friend in China prepare for a job interview in 2010, Vijay realized that he could offer personalized job interview coaching services anywhere in the world using Skype and phone. He subsequently founded Interview SOS. While attending the UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles, Vijay was a career coach for the Parker Career Management Center (the school’s MBA-level career counseling service) who helped other students to prepare for job interviews, write resumes and draft cover letters. For four years prior to business school, Vijay acted as a Boston-area diversity recruiter and interviewer for the Sponsors for Educational Opportunity Career Program. Vijay has his undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Chicago and an MBA from the UCLA Anderson School of Management in Los Angeles, California. He is a National Merit Scholar and CFA charter holder. Vijay’s sister, Mindy Kaling, is the executive producer, writer and star of the Mindy Project on Fox Television.
