Fun facts:

I love competitive sports. Soccer and squash have been constants for me from a young age. I have played both to a high level.

I am a car nut. My teachers used to ask me "don't you have anything else to write about?" in my journals when I was young.

I love fixing things. Why throw it out if it can be repaired?

"I connected with Will to seek advice from him regarding job search and interview preparation. Never did I ever realize that his simple advice would help me crack an interview, and that too for a position that I had once thought was impossible to get into. A simple thanks would not suffice. I shall be grateful to Will, forever!"

He is always willing to share his knowledge and experiences and spend the time and effort to help me with specific questions I had. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for engineering career advice - especially from a manager's perspective!".
