If you’ve been concerned about your extra-curricular experience not being solid enough for the good MBA universities, here’s a chance to rectify that. At MBA Crystal Ball, we’ve been doing some exciting and unconventional work in the area of MBA admissions consulting. The MCB brand has been growing within India AND outside. And we could do with some help from self-driven and entrepreneurial folks out there who’d like to be associated with us on short-term projects.
You don’t need to be an MBA expert (though it won’t hurt if you are familiar with what we do) and you don’t need to be Indian. Just tell us what you are good at and we can find a way to fit you in. It could be anything – phenomenal writing skills (getting people to read your work even when they care two hoots about the topic you are writing on) or e-marketing finesse (e.g. you can sell coconut-shell based products in a nudist colony) or kick-ass Photoshop skills (creating content that non-porn site surfers will also enjoy) or SEO gurus (social media actually makes sense to you) or your mom thinks you are the most creative person on earth (or at least in the geographical area covered by your pin-code). If what you bring to the table blows our brains out, we could also think about a longer-term role for you in the team.
Depending on your contribution, we could consider working out incentives ranging from a pat on the back to revenue sharing. If you are planning to consider this as an early retirement strategy, you might want to think again. However, if you are in it for the right reasons, you’ll enjoy being part of our brand building process.
We aren’t looking for credentials that look impressive on paper. So please don’t send us your resume. Write a few impactful, emotion-laden lines about what makes you special (and you thought only business schools ask you to do that?) as a comment to this post. Even if we aren’t interested in your proposal, as a recognition of your genuine talent, we’ll approve and retain the interesting comments. So your speciality will be out there for the world to view. If you want to avoid the blinding public glare, a regular email should be good too –> info [at] mbacrystalball [dot] com
If you aren’t interested in any of this, just for the heck of it, send across a proposal anyway. Think of it as free practice session for an essential skill (preparing an elevator pitch) that you’d need to be successful in life.
