3. Who should use our On-Demand Advisory?

Our clients are mostly international students or professional immigrants. They use our advisory services when they need RELIABLE answers or solutions for their own situation. Our work experience and industry knowledge will save them time and money by providing valuable and practical advice.

4. Why is our On-Demand Advisory service different than Internet-based free advice and recommendation?

All advisors are industry professionals who have been working in the finance/accounting industry for years, some have CPA/CFA designation. We take a personal approach to study and really understand your own problems/questions. Our recommendations will be tailored to fit into your personal situation.There is no general answer.

For example: 

a/ To build a winning resume, we will show you how to present and personalize your resume with your own work experience , rather than copying and pasting sample sentences on the internet.

b/ To do career planning, with our years of experience and expertise, we will study your background, strengths and weaknesses to show you the most efficient and feasible way to achieve your career goals so that you can save both time and money.     

5. How are sessions scheduled?

When you sign up for the service, we will ask you to provide a few time slots at which you are available for your first coaching session. Our team will then match you with the best industry professional (advisor) available at the different times you suggested and introduce you to your advisor via email ahead of your session.

We have always managed to find convenient slots for clients so far. Customers typically book their coaching sessions with us 3 days or more in advance. If you would like to book a coaching session in less than 3 days we would recommend contacting our team first to make sure we have availability. You can send an email at jobs@trainandgethired.com .

6. What is included on the advisory session?

Your advisory session is tailored to you. Your advisor will work with you in advance of the session to decide what you will cover during the hour to make sure time is most effectively spent.

If you are preparing for an upcoming interview, this will be a one-on-one mock interview session followed by feedback and recommendations.

Some advisors also decide to use the session to make progress on specific areas (e.g. networking, resume/cover letter, personal situation etc.) If you are not sure where to start we encourage you to book a first session and send us your resume, our advisor will then advise you on what you should focus on.

7. What’s your cancellation, “no show” and rescheduling policy?

Advisory sessions can be cancelled and rescheduled for free by giving us more than 24h notice. In other words, if you decide you don’t need the session anymore and tell us more than 24h in advance it will be eligible for a refund. Or if you decided that you want to do the session at another time and tell us more than 24h in advance we will reschedule it for free.

If you fail to attend a advisory session (“no show”) without notifying us in the appropriate time frame you will lose that session with no refund.
