Client Love

I stumbled on Pinkcareers thorough LinkedIn. And I am glad I did. I have had the opportunity to interact twice with Richa. The first time when I had dropped in my details for an introduction session and a second time for a mentoring session. Both times Richa was refreshingly frank, easy to talk to, she was insightful and advised me to look at perspectives in a way that not only was positive but also relatable and insightful. I know and understand first hand the challenges faced by women at work specifically early on in their careers and I also know I will always go back to Richa and Team Pinkcareers for advice and resources in the near future. Recommend them highly.

I am beyond grateful to have had the opportunity to have a mentor session with Richa Bansal. The session went really well! She is a very charismatic, intelligent and open-minded individual. She provided me with both insightful and beneficial information on how to handle my current employment status as well as, future interviews. I highly recommend that young professionals who are looking for advice in our ever-evolving oil and gas industry to book a session with her or participate in one of her mentorship programs.
Cassandra Dewan, Process Engineer

I found my mentoring session with Richa very refreshing and a productive. I had been juggling a lot of activities and she helped bring clarity to my thoughts. Richa was very knowledgeable and she provided many insights into future career paths I had been deliberating, allowing me to visualize what each path practically entailed. Her soothing voice was a plus!
Miriam Randolph-Akushie, Area Inventory Coordinator

I admire Richa's assertive nature, and passion for encouraging young professionals to develop their leadership skills. I would recommend Pinkcareers to women looking to take the next step in their careers.
