According to Akbar, “Some years back, I had to talk my way into a job, as I was about to lose my visa status. To survive, I developed strategies for influencing people who were in a position to hire me despite my limited qualifications. I used these strategies—which eventually formed the basis of Interview AikidoTM—to climb the corporate ladder and start three businesses. Today I am passionate about helping others find and excel in careers that light them up; I recommend both orthodox and unorthodox strategies.  To successfully compete in today’s bear job market, my clients need to be armed with the most intelligent strategies and best practices in job search and career management.”
