Anyone here applied for an MBA program that was different from their role at the time? I'm curious as to how you managed the conversation with your surpervisor, particularly when it came to asking for his/her recommendation?

I got a call for a Java position. I told them I do not develop in Java. I do JavaScript with React. He says “oh yes, that is what the client wants”. So I sent my resume. When he sent the confirmation email it stated Angular/Java. I told him that I don’t have much Java skills. He then sent this (pic) as a response. 🤔🤔🤔
When I spoke to the client she had no idea why the recruiter added angular react as it was just a Java developer position, Completely wasted so much time

Would that be something that is looked down upon from the admission officers point of view since I would technically be unemployed when I’m applying or is it fine if I talk about traveling and the international experience etc?
