Can somebody provide examples of strong ECs? Is involvement in a local small business accelerator a good example? How to find time to participate if I work 60 hours/week on average? Or does a hobby like a youtube channel count as well? I need a top tier MBA degree for better job opportunities, and I don’t care about community impact. Gonna fake it if I have to. Help.

YouTube channel could definitely be a differentiator. Show them that you’re creative and passionate about sharing a topic with an audience. Demonstrating speaking skills doesn’t hurt either. Especially if this channel is you as an 8 year old kid unboxing toys, or providing unsolicited health advice while lacking credentials, or curstknf your favorite tik toks in various playlists

Hi all, has anyone in supply chain taken one of the certification exams? (CPSM, CPSD, CSCP) Does it help in any way besides refreshing contents about supply chain? I was thinking might be a good way to strengthen my resume (most of my career in investment analysis) but not really sure if it really brings that much value. Any insights appreciated. #supplychain #cpsm #cpsd #cscp #education #certifications

Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
