It does not. Depends on the school but for many schools, PT students don't get to participate in the recruiting process along with FT students, or there are a lot of requirements you need to go through to be allowed to participate. Sometimes PT students don't have access to the same career network and career center services. It's something you should look into before applying, or at least before matriculation

^ this. No part-time program can compare to a full time program. The disparity is so high that even going to a top 30 full time would be better than an M7 part time.

PT is usually for those who want to stay in their current vertical and company (or recruit to other competitors in their same industry). Probably mid-career and need the MBA to advance. PT and EMBA is not for career changers and especially for wanting to break into consulting at the top firms. Really should aim for FT if you want to pivot careers or go into consulting or banking.

Good Morning. Here's my dilemma. I have an approved H1B application which got picked up in 2019-20 lot and approved in Jan 2020, before the world went into lockdown. The stamping process was initiated but it couldn't complete as the USCIS offices were shutdown die to the pandemic. I have watched patiently about all the regulations Trump Administration brought in to deny any entry to H1B applicants who weren't already working in the states or who were waiting to return.

Moms- career advice needed for a soon to be mom. (Starting to try next month) Currently at 70k audit, 1.5 yoe, considering going to IB or FAANG to make +100k before pulling the plug to be a SAHM when baby arrives. Has anyone had any career path/experience with this? Any pre/post insights to make an informed decision. Other factors I should consider?

I’m looking to pivot into a job within my degree. Long story short I worked full time all throughout college at a tech company.

I really just need guidance on if I should abandoned the pursuit of trying to get a job at an agency or pivot to get my mba.

I recently met someone in another country where I’m working remote. He asked me to be his girlfriend but I’m moving in about a month. He doesn’t want to do distance unless I move back (which is an option with remote work, but visas are tricky). I really like him but don’t know if I’d be able to move back here between work/borders/etc. Do I keep seeing him and just try to enjoy the now? A part of me just feels so sad about leaving and breaking up. Idk if it’s worth it.

But In 2022 I start putting the rest if leftover in 401K AFTER TAX 😩 because I am afraid it may go away soon. Is this a good move considering the uncertainty of 401k After Tax bill?
