What mentees are saying about Soudamini S

Soudamini's knowledge of ML systems is incredible and she ensures that a candidate is well prepared with their basics for the ML Engineering role. Her approach to interviewing is also a way of teaching the candidate of how to approach complicated systems and come up with a solution during the interview in a systematic manner. I would recommend any candidate to take up multiple sessions with her in-order to learn variety and help in preparation.
