Like short responses? Is it more than hbs???

Yes it is more than HBS

I’m liking it more than HBS, but for sure a really different style

All the hidden essays, short responses within the “employment” section...it’s so much. Idk how they have time to read it all

I received my MA in History 2 years ago now, but I can’t find a job teaching. I don’t have credentials, I was hoping to find something at a community college. I’m coming up empty and it’s frustrating. I can’t afford to get a PhD right now, nor do I feel like I have the years to spare. Any advice? I’m tired of working in warehousing, it’s not my passion.

Graduating with PhD in comp neuro next year. I just did a week long internship at MBB to check out consulting, which I loved but ultimately will not be accepting my offer for life considerations (my wife also works at MBB and we have young children). It was amazing getting a sense of what the work actually comprises.

Are there any similar day-long or week-long internship programs for data science? Would love to test it out for a little bit to see what I like/dislike.

I am in the process of finishing up my MBA but considering also getting my SPHR or PHR cert. Is it even worth it or a waste of time and money?
