For those who got into HSW, how explicit were you in stating your post MBA career interests? I’m an ex-consultant now at G, looking to pivot back into healthcare. (Continued in post.)

I think it’s somewhere in between your two examples. Be specific about the type of impact you wish to have, whether it’s transforming clinical care vs. pharmaceutical side vs. a healthcare tech start-up, etc.

And what’s super important is tying that specific impact to prior examples that show you can do it.

Got it - so in this case, outlining how X experience in consulting or Y project at Google taught me Z skill which will be critical for “being the lead strategist at a heath tech startup”, etc.?

How defined do I have to be in stating what I want to do in healthcare? As in, do I need to spell out “after HSW, I want to join a midsized consumer health startup focused on improving the patient experience in the rural US” or “after HSW, leading J&J’s ... would be my dream”?

Or, can it be more high-level “given my past focus on healthcare as a consultant and XYZ additional factors, I want to now return to the healthcare industry, etc...”

I am a registered sales assistant which means I have my series 7. I also have the 63 and my Life & Health license.

I have a gut feeling that I’m not being paid market value but it’s tough to find comparable salaries. Do you think $15.38/hr is a fair wage in this case?

If you find out a place was willing to offer you more than you originally asked and you’re still in the interview process - is it a bad look to change your answer further in the process?
Example:

90-95k.
- great we’re looking at 100k so that’s perfect.
