Namrata Singh

A career comeback after a long gap and a sales/marketing background, meant I had to start from scratch. I thought I would be a square peg in a round hole, but it’s been quite the opposite. I love everything about search, starting from the excitement when you begin the work, all the way to the pangs of nervousness during the closure process.

Vibhuti Kohli

What I love most about being in the search industry is that it gives me the opportunity to learn about a variety of industries and get to know different kinds of people. I have learned to trust my instinct and developed a keen sense of interest and joy in seeing a candidate well-placed and in building a successful partnership with the clients.

Chhaya Arora

The thing I love most about being in the search industry is that it gives me the opportunity to learn about a variety of industries and get to know different kinds of people. I am passionate about digging deep to get into the skin of the role and using my understanding of the industry to solve the search.

Preeti Sharma

Learning from Industry leaders and my colleagues, becoming better at what I do by harnessing my business acumen, communication and leadership skills is what I love about the search industry. At Ishwa, my game has really hit the next level. Working with demanding clients and extremely talented candidates is thrilling to say the least.

Rashmi Lamba

I love the thrill of the chase. Being a recruiter, I get a sense of accomplishment when I see the achievements of people I hire, knowing that I played a small part in making it happen. Client and candidate needs constantly change, you never stop learning and growing, so your job never gets boring.

Manpreet Kaur

I am delighted to be pursuing my dream career of being an executive search consultant at Ishwa Consulting. I have learned to trust my instinct and developed a keen sense of interest and joy in seeing a candidate well-placed and in building a successful partnership with the clients.

Shambhav Sinha

Executive Search has built my strategic thinking abilities. I feel passionate about search. I’ve have been able to deliver the impossible to a number of search clients who really needed my help. The more unique the circumstances, the greater the challenge.

Varsha Karthik

I believe there are no limitations to my success and the secret to this perhaps is because I have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best talent in the world with supreme passion.

I bet on headhunting through extensive research, raise my networking and rapport-building bar, take up new challenges, and be a digital recruitment warrior maintaining timely deliverables.
