Yes. Someone of my 2+2 peers had lacking work experience and it affected them in recruitment here though.

Yes, but you should be sure you want to go to b-school. It’s more competitive than the regular round and if you’re lucky enough to get in, you’ll be paying an annual deposit. Meant to attract people in operating roles like SEs and other STEM folk.

Regardless of if you think you’ll get it, if you want to get an MBA eventually I would recommend going through the process. I didn’t get in (no shock, given competitiveness), but going through the introspective application process and trying to figure out my career goals really set me up well to start full time and know what I want out of my career (so far)

Thanks a lot, your comment kind of concluded my decision to go for it :)

I just got an email from a recruiter about a PMM role with a tech company. The interesting part is I got what seems to be forward between to employees and I can see exchanged messages. I can see the salary (how much wiggle room, who applied, and interview questions. The role doesn't fit me, but if someone has mobile app experience and works in product marketing, I can slide the information over to you and notifying the recruiter.
