Work With Us

As most of my students would know, I have been with IMS for more than a decade now.

But I started teaching for aptitude tests way back in the past, right after my graduation while preparing for the CAT a second time around.

At that time I felt that the teaching stint had a great role to play in my cracking the CAT; I felt the teaching made my thought process very clear when faced with a problem since one has to have utmost clarity of thought to explain a problem in such a way as many students understand the solution right away. Also one is always looking to find better, cleaner or to put it simply more elegant solutions to problems.

Over the past year, I have interacted with a lot of students across the country who are readers of the blog, so I was wondering if any you might be interested in working in the Learning Management Department along with Amit Sir, Parameshwar Sir, Shashank Prabhu Sir, and me (IMS students will be aware of the mentors I have mentioned from the webinars and Masterclasses we conducted over the year).

How to apply

If any of you are interested then drop in a mail to tony@imsindia.com with the following details before 28-Feb.

  1. A resume/CV and scorecards
  2. A short answer to the following question: Why do you feel you have the skill sets to take up this role? Feel free to include anything that you feel will let us know why you feel you have the potential to take up the role — exam/test scores (SimCAT scores, if you have a tendency to bomb on test day), reading habits, prior informal teaching, love for the section, communication skills — anything that you feel captures your suitability.

It goes without saying that the biggest perks of this job will be that you have direct everyday access to the best mentors in case you are taking another shot at the CAT.

This is what a couple of our past recruits have to say about working with us.

ROHIT SINGH

Background before joining IMS

I had worked for a year and a half in a leading IT company when I got the opportunity to join IMS. I had taken CAT twice before (with decent scores) but realized that I needed to work harder if I wanted to create a genuine chance for me to join one of the old IIMs.

Experience working with IMS

1) I had mentors all around. I could go to anyone and ask for guidance and all of them were among the best in the business. (when we used to go to office in pre-covid era). Most of them have experience of 15+ years in the field and are alumni of old IIMs.

2) I got to interact with some of the smartest people I had ever seen in my life. We had a lot of people from the top colleges in the office and personally for me, it was a huge confidence booster.

Interacting with them on a daily basis helped me a lot in transforming myself.

So, I became a better person and cracked CAT as well. In CAT 2020, I got 99.37 and 99.58 in VARC and QA respectively. 

What’s up with me these days

I am expecting interview calls from XLRI, FMS and some of the old IIMs.

Again, the presence of mentors all around is helping me getting that required confidence before the final stage. I am getting the right guidance and all this is helping me to prepare for GDPI more effectively.

Since, most people here are alumni of top business schools; every now and then, I get to know a clearer picture of the college life. This helps me know what to expect from MBA and to prepare myself in advance for the campus life. I believe this will help me make the most of my 2 years in MBA.

RUTUJA PATIL

Background before joining IMS

Before getting the opportunity to join IMS, I worked for 27 months in a manufacturing plant of an MNC. I had taken CAT before and scored decent percentile. However, that was not enough to get into the top B-Schools. I realized that a full-throttle shot at CAT along with the right mentorship was what was needed.

Experience working with IMS

The best part is you get guidance from the best mentors. And all of them are always ready to help you in achieving your goals. 

IMS is filled with people with great experience not just in teaching but in administration as well. I was surrounded by great minds and got to learn a lot of different things from them on a professional as well as personal front, which helped me grow as an individual.

What’s up with me these days

With excellent mentors, I was able to bring my weak areas in focus and work on them to score 97.88 percentile in CAT 2021. I have received calls from IIM L, I, K, XLRI, and SPJIMR to name a few and am currently giving my interviews.

The mentors themselves are from the top B-Schools and know in and out of the MBA admission process. I am grateful to have them by my side and guide me through the GDPI process to convert each opportunity into success. 

The learnings that I had from each and everyone in IMS is not just limited to getting into a B-School but, will help me throughout my career.

    • Hi Niraj,

      That was a mistake in the last part (we had a few openings for freshers last year).

      The dates are still open. If you feel that you have the knowledge & skills to take up any of the roles (despite not having the work-ex) feel free to throw in your hat.

      All the best!
