Not a complete game changer, but it will definitely help your profile stand out. Though you should definitely have a good answer for why you’re going back to school again.

When you network, how do you find where to add value for the person you’re networking with? Everyone tells you to find “where you can add value”, but when you’re just starting out nobody trusts you enough to actually assign any task to you.

I have the first performance review of my career coming up. As an Analyst, my major responsibilities include being an Excel and PowerPoint monkey. How do I spin these to make them sound impactful?

I asked 3 of my higher ups to write me letters of recommendation a month ago when I put in my resignation. I went on PTO for a couple weeks & followed up with my manager today. He told me “actually I was told we aren’t allowed to write them for you. Sorry.”

I asked why and he just shrugged and continued the conversation...

Has anyone heard of anything like this? Bosses “not being allowed” to write LORs for exiting employees? I’m leaving on my own terms & good standing.

What type of stories do MBB consultants who want to continue their career in their company tell in their applications? Im going to apply next year but Im not sure how interesting my application can be.

Any suggestions for good pre-MBA programs/coursework to do?

I know I have at least 3/4 years before applying but my employer offers tuition reimbursement and wanted to get a head start looking at options!

I think I’ve succumbed to the obsession of only the top schools being good enough. I first thought T15 was good enough, then only M7, then only HSW, and now only H/S.

It stresses me out a ton to think that I might not get into H/S and my career goals could be out the window as a result.
