MBA Applicants

Any good samples on how to represent project experience on your resume? Also, how much information did you divulge i.e. if I say my client was a $260B technology company, is that fine?

Do you think it’s overkill to send a sample of my work product (wiped of client info) to my interviewer? I interviewed last Friday and sent a thank you. It’s been 10 days, they’re still interviewing..

I love my client. They have been invaluable partners and have spoiled me, giving me prompt info, insight, timely decisions and kindness. Rolling off this week. It’s like saying good-bye to friends. 😢

I feel like some SMs are brainwashed by the client. One I am working with doesn't like people leaving or wfh or going to the home office. Dude I gotta go catch up on my PD work.

Why is it assumed PMs are responsible for scheduling all meetings and taking notes? When did this happen? I was responsible for providing a recap of meetings in the sense of next steps, not in depth notes on the conversation. As for scheduling meetings, I was responsible for scheduling the milestone meetings (kick offs, internal reviews, post mortems, status meetings that I led), I did not schedule the team reviews (CD reviews with ADs/CWs), client meetings, etc. Comments?

I did Keto before I even knew it was Keto. I was on a weird project, alone on-site with the whole team scattered, so I skipped dinner every day and worked out for two hours, woke up and had a giant carb-free breakfast and a spinach salad for lunch. I lost 40lbs before I rolled off... I remember my sweat smelling like ammonia all the time. I'm gonna get into a similar schedule... hopefully it melts off this time again - 10 years later!

I have five years big 4. Always did well bonus and promotion wise. In between I left for IT sales to make more money but being in Boston I would of had to move for better opportunities. Now I’m back in consulting and miss the freedom of sales. Anyone in my position? I felt this way before quarantine too. The SM on my project almost got divorced so she worked so much, then she said I realized it just my life. It’s just too unhealthy. Thoughts bowlers?
