I joined breakspace as an online student . I was little sceptical first as to whether, the learning online would be as good as then live classes. But then as the sessions started all my worries were safely taken care of. Our mentors, Shahrukh Sir, Srinath Sir and Partha Sir make sure that needs of every student is attended to .
The online students were involved in all the class discussions. There were separate GD/ Case discussions for the online students which made sure we did not miss out on anything. The sessions were very well designed . They covered areas like how to approach different topics and cases, practise for WAT and then there were knowledge sessions . The best thing about these sessions are that they help us develop on our thinking ; to think differently on various topics and to structure those thoughts properly so that we are able to communicate better, is one of my biggest takeaway from these sessions . Also, the various knowledge sessions were really insightful and covering all the relevant topics which we were required to know for the actual interviews.
As far as the mock interviews are concerned, Breakspace gives us the option to take as many as mock sessions as we require. This very thing allows us to get well versed with various possible interview situations before we go for our actual interviews. Shahrukh Sir and Srinath Sir conduct mock interviews in such a manner that a student’s weak areas get refined . For me the weakest spot was my tendency to get nervous. So, they took many stress interviews for me, to help me overcome this weakness .
Also , on the Facebook group daily discussions were held on various topics and feedbacks were given by the mentors. Plus transcripts of mock interviews of other students were uploaded on it, which further helped in preparing for interview questions.
All in all my Breakspace journey was a beautiful one. It helped me develop on various aspects of my personality and the lessons I learned there are helping me even now , when I am part of a b-school. I believe the mentors are the whole and soul of any educational program . And Breakspace has such amazing mentors, who go out of their way to help each student, so the learning experience eventually has to turn out to be a great one
