When is it ‘too early’ to add ‘MBA candidate’ / add the school you will he attending to your LinkedIn/resume ? I’ll be doing part time program starting next spring and am looking for a new role. Think it may help me land a stretch role, and also want recruiters to see it if they run searches, but don’t want to be obnoxious about it.

Maybe as soon as you start the program? I suppose maybe after you’ve been accepted, but it may be more conservative to wait until you actually start a course

Don’t, esp with part time. It’s one thing if you’re going full time to explain the employment gap on resume/LI. Assuming you’ll be working just add the education to your profile with assumed grad date.

I'd add "school name", "MBA candidate", and "expected date of graduation" to resume right away. It does not matter when you start, but it does matter when you (are expected to) become credentialed.

I wouldn’t add “Incoming XX candidate” but just put it in the education section with a clear date range. That said, I’m not too sure this would help you - wouldn’t prospective employers think you’d be a foot out the door soon (even if PT) and not be willing to hire? Recruiters would likely think similarly, or imagine that you are “deficient” until you actually have the degree (for certain industries). I just am not sure that the MBA means anything until you have it, if I’m honest, but will defer to others here.

Great feedback, but I should clarify- I wasn’t planning on putting it on my tagline/at the top of the page. More just adding it to the education section with ‘expected graduation date’ on it.

Hey Ladies - my fiancé is trying to move to Boston or New York in the next few months, but his field is pretty niche in finance (long only investing). He works at a mutual fund in Chicago, and has been putting feelers out. We both feel that more postings will open up in January, but if anyone has some insight on recent job openings that might be a good fit, I’d love to know so I can point him that way. A chance to connect him with someone would also be extremely helpful! Long distance is hard.

I’m sure corona is playing a part too, just don’t love the culture, lack of transparency in what it takes to move up, lack of formal reviews, etc. I’m pretty junior and firm is ~100 attorneys for context
