Three percent - that’s the percentage of CAT test takers who actually make it to the top IIMs, IITs, and other business schools. It’s safe to say that the exam is the Nemean lion of competitive entrance exams, and not everyone can crack it in the first, second, or even the third attempt. But what if, for one entire year till CAT 2020, you had special access to resources no other CAT aspirant does? What if your job didn’t just give you enough time to prepare for CAT but was CAT preparation itself? Interested? Read more here.
I first took CAT in the year 2017, without a single mock test or even a smattering of what to expect in the exam. The result was unsurprisingly abysmal but now, I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve. I was, however, skeptical of being able to cope with CAT preparation and a job and had friends working at IT companies who hadn’t fared too well in CAT while working. I then came across a job opening at InsideIIM, and it was the perfect mix of everything I wanted - working with a startup, being in close contact with the massive world of CAT, and a content creation role. Little did I know that it would only get better!
Within the first week itself, I began to understand that the ‘IIM’ in InsideIIM meant a lot more to the team than anyone could possibly imagine. It will not be an exaggeration to say that the entire team lives and breathes CAT and works every single day to help MBA aspirants achieve their dream of making it to a business school. Being a startup, things were very fast-paced and learning opportunities were immense! In my time here, I have had the opportunity to experience and immerse myself in the basics of business while staying focused on my ultimate goal - belling the CAT; a goal the team at InsideIIM has actively helped me seek!
Now, as our MBA community expands and we head into the new year, InsideIIM has begun the hunt for someone as obsessed with the world of CAT as we aspirants are, and invites all CAT 2020 and CAT 2021 aspirants to join our team!

What’s In It For You
So, you want to join a business school. But how well do you really know how a business works? How well versed are you with ambiguity, tight deadlines, leadership, and customer delight? Is your business acumen developed enough for a B-school classroom?
As a team member at InsideIIM, you will be taken right down to the basics of business. You will be working in a startup as a mini-entrepreneur and will learn more about business every day on the shop floor than you will in a B-school classroom. You will learn to shoulder responsibility, lead teams, and learn the cross-functional processes of a small business. By the time you appear for your first B-school interview, you will know more about business and business schools than most of your peers, putting you way ahead of the curve and giving you a serious advantage over everyone else in the waiting lounge. But that’s not all.
Once you join InsideIIM as a Content Creator, you will be working closely with IIM students, ex-CAT toppers, CAT experts from across the country and massive brands recruiting at elite business schools. To top it off, you will be exposed to thousands of CAT aspirants just like yourself, which will be an opportunity for you to prepare with some of the sharpest minds in the country.
The icing on the cake? Along with me, our team at InsideIIM already has numerous CAT aspirants and previous CAT test-takers within its ranks, all with the same dream as yourself - making it to an elite management institute.
