1:1 Long-term Mentorship Success Roadmap at Preplaced

This is the Preplaced Mentorship journey - from job preparation to cracking interviews. Let's go through Yashika's prep journey with her Google mentor Harshit.



Welcome to the Preplaced Mentorship Experience!

Preplaced mentorship is one of a kind; it's designed differently than most upskill and job preparation solutions out there. It's 1:1, personalised, long-term, and goal-driven. 

Let me take you through the entire mentorship experience, roadmap and its success journey.

With Preplaced’s 1:1 long-term mentorship, you get guidance from experts who have been in your shoes and have already climbed the success ladder. Through this program, you get customised and long-term mentorship from real-life interviewers at MAANG and top tech companies.

To make you understand this experience better, I'm going to take you through Yashika's job and interview preparation journey. 👉🏽

One of our mentees Yashika is aiming to get placed in Google as a Software Engineer. She puts some filters and looks for a mentor who is working at her target company.


She found a couple of mentors who suit her requirements. She likes Harshit's profile as the best suitable for her use case. 


To get started, Yashika books a trial session with Harshit who matches her requirements perfectly.

⭐️ Stage 1: Trial session with Google Mentor Harshit Gupta

Yashika books a trial session with her selected mentor Harshit Gupta to dip her toes in the water and see what interview preparation with a mentor looks like before committing to the long-term mentorship relationship.

In the session, Yashika gets to know the mentor and discusses her career goals and pain points.

During the session, Harshit resolves her queries regarding applying at Google. He answers some of her pressing questions regarding starting her preparation and resume building. 

After the discussion of about 40 minutes, Yashika understands what her preparation level is according to mentor Harshit. She gets a list of improvement areas, a high-level plan of action and an ideal timeline to meet her goals.

⭐️ Stage 2: Getting Started with the long-term mentorship program

Yashika is happy with the trial session, as she feels that her mentor was able to guide her in the right direction. She has gained clarity about her aspirations and feels motivated after talking to Harshit.

She decides to begin her interview preparation journey with Harshit by purchasing a 1:1 long-term, personalised mentorship with him.

She is certain that she will become interview-ready for Google in the next few months with an expert's end-to-end guidance and evaluation.

⭐️ Stage 3: Building a solid masterplan and a strategy to execute it

Yashika is all set to begin her mentor-led interview preparation journey.

In the first session of the long-term mentorship, which is the planning session, Harshit discusses her current preparedness level.

All the following components are listed in Yashika's Planner Doc which she can easily access and can refer to whenever she wants.

✅ Mentor Evaluation Score: A rating on a scale of 1 to 10 showing her current preparedness level.


Then Harshit explains to her the areas she needs to improve in to be able to reach her goals.

✅ Areas of Improvement: Skills that she needs to work on.


In the first session, Yashika understands the elaborate list of action items she needs to focus on.

✅ Plan of action: This includes steps that the mentor will take to prepare her.


The most essential part of Yashika's plan is this timeline that she needs to follow. This gives her plan a time-bound aspect which makes her want to complete her action items and tasks on time.

✅ Timeline: The ideal time duration for her to become interview-ready.

⭐️ Stage 4: Executing the plan: One task and resource at a time

Now that the perfect interview preparation plan for Yashika has been created, she moves forward with the execution part.

During this stage, she receives a list of tasks and resources from the mentor for preparation that can be accessed in her planner doc. 


She starts working toward the plan as per her already defined SMART goals.

Whenever she gets stuck on a problem, has a conceptual doubt or even on days when she is feeling a lack of motivation, she connects with Harshit by using the Chat feature on her mentee dashboard.

Harshit, being a Preplaced mentor, is available on Chat where he can constantly be in touch with his mentee to provide hand-holding support whenever she needs it.

They schedule their weekly sync-up sessions as per their mutual availability and discuss Yashika's progress. Harshit also conducts mock interviews for her so that she gets the real-life interview simulation from an expert who is a seasoned SDE professional and an interviewer at his company.

In one of the sync-up sessions, Harshit also reviews Yashika's resume and gives her tips to improve it. He also asks her to practise her communication and behavioural skills.

⭐️ Stage 5: Continuous Evaluation and Feedback

Harshit starts evaluating her progress more thoroughly month by month through assessments and mock interviews.

Yashika needs to get better at DSA round 2 and HLD and LLD to apply for the Senior Developer role. She gets assessments for DSA and system designs from Harshit.

He provides feedback on the areas she still needs improvement in and further defines the skill gaps that are stopping her from becoming absolutely interview-ready.

He keeps motivating and helping Yashika each step of the way to help her cross all her hurdles.

⭐️ Stage 6: Final revision

Yashika becomes ready to appear for interviews at Google.

She receives additional support and guidance from Harshit in terms of her portfolio, LinkedIn profile, additional projects and revisions that she needs.

Since Harshit is impressed with her overall performance throughout the program, she gets a referral from him and also gets invited to join his professional network.

⭐️ Stage 7: Cracking the interview

Yashika cracks a Google interview with the help of her mentor after 4 months of preparation. 🎉

It was a lot of hard work - not just from Yashika's side but also from her mentor Harshit's part. He really made sure that Yashika gets placed in her dream company.

Had Yashika not been placed after four months, Harshit would have carried on with the preparation program with her. Because with Preplaced, it's all about helping a mentee meet their goal - till they get placed.

Here, your mentors take full responsibility of your interview preparation success and leave no stone unturned. 🔥

Now that you've gone through the entire mentorship success roadmap, I hope you understand what the journey of a Preplaced mentee looks like.

So now you can also walk on the path to success with a personalised mentorship where the mentor will take complete responsibility for your preparation to help you crack your dream interview. 

And get placed with the help of REAL mentorship which is 1:1 personalised, long-term and goal-driven Preplaced mentorship.
