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.
