'Alka facilitated a number of online sessions for us at Otis India. The finesse, passion and conviction with which she did so was incredible. I had employees writing back to me appreciating the content and most important her signature facilitation skills. I have been influenced by her and do try to emulate (whenever I get an opportunity to facilitate), but I am nowhere close as I guess not everyone can be an Alka.' Gaurav Malhotra 

'I engaged Alka to run career workshops for our Masters students. Her knowledge of the career space and understanding of the needs of young talent, make it easy for me to work with her on curating the workshop content. She is always lively and able to engage the audience well, coaxing the shy students to respond during the workshops. Her motivation and sincerity in helping these students are clearly demonstrated when she shared supplementary notes with them after each workshop. I enjoy working with Alka and love that burst of energy she brings into our conversations.' Hamidah Puteh 

"Thank you Alka, you're an amazing virtual trainer."  DBS Bank, May 2020

“Alka is one of a kind. There is no one better in Singapore or the region who truly understands recruiting and the important details required to find and get a job. I have taken two courses at CRCE under Alka's guidance and found both to be 'lifesaver' courses as I re-entered the paid workforce after a long absence. A true professional, Alka is extremely well connected, very knowledgable about the recruiting industry, and has the personality and drive to help others succeed. Approachable to a fault, I have no hesitation in recommending Alka to any organisation where attitude and determination matter most. Alka is an absolute pleasure to know and work with.”  Yvonne McNulty, Ph.D., Founder Expat Research 

"Ms. Alka Chandiramani has given talks to the Senior High School Students at Dunman High School for two consecutive years, together with her team of experienced trainers.  She has maintained high standards of professionalism, seeking to understand the needs of the school and students so as to better the training to suit the profile of the students.  Her dedication to the training is evident by her dropping by the school prior to the event to check out the physical infrastructure and run through her presentation in the designated venues.  She was clear in her delivery, provided pre- and post-working materials for the students.

On top of the mass sessions, Ms. Alka and Mr. Nigel Nolan conducted special coaching sessions for a select group of students.  Even though this additional series of workshop is conducted on a pro-bono basis, the trainers maintained high level of professionalism.  Workshops were well-prepared.  The trainers designed and made effective use of a set of  pre-activity work to give close coaching to individual students.  On site, the trainers interacted well with students who found them warm, approachable and knowledgeable.  Off site, the trainers were quick in responding to students' email queries.  They provided good feedback to students, helping them reflect and work towards improvement."  Subject Head, Economics, Humanities and Arts Academy at Dunman High School

"Alka provided invaluable support as she guided me through the necessary steps to attain professional self-awareness, and redirect my career.  She provided great insight into the local business culture and climate, and equipped me with the tools necessary for a successful negotiation.  I would highly recommend her services to anyone in Singapore considering a career shift.  From April 2015, I have a new Director position in the US. This is in a wonderful facility and a fantastic position and I couldn't be happier.  I am continually grateful to you for your guidance over the years and I know that you were a big part of making this possible. " Dr. Meredith Calvert, Head (Bioimaging & Biocomputing), Temasek Life Sciences Laboratory NUS

"I had the pleasure of working with Alka to coach our business undergraduates at one-on-one interview clinics.  So far, the students feedback is positive and we intend to continually engage Alka's services when the new semester starts in January 2011."  Executive, Career Services, National University of Singapore, Business School

"I just wanted to say thank you for your presentation today. You did a fantastic job of addressing the needs of all audience members; soon to retire, spouses seeking local employment and those soon to return to the work force in the US. Thank you for taking the time to research some of the unique issues not typical of your usual audience."  Family Services Office, Navy Region Singapore

"As for my search, I am delighted to report that I have finally accepted a position at Citibank in SG and have now been with them for one month.   I am indebted to you for all of your help and support during my search and I need you to know that this would not have been possible without your invaluable expertise and support."
